Abandoned Theme Park

The internet brought me to these great, creepy photos of an abandoned theme parks. These pictures, whilst they are creepy, I think they are beautiful. Theme parks are so colourful and vibrant, the faded, weathered rides remind you that we all grow up and get old. These places that were once loved by children are now nothing but a junkyard full of 'scrap metal'

When I was a kid I use to love going to a theme park we had here in Sydney called Australias Wonderland. Unfortunately it closed in 2004 and was dismantled and bits and pieces were sold off. Now the land is an industrial area (sad face).

We are off to ... AMERICA!

I am so super excited, whilst I had a broken leg, my partner won a short film festival and was accepted into the 'International' finals which are being held in none other than Grauman's Chinese Theatre in  LA!

So we are super excited having never been to America before. We are only there for a short time so we want to know where the best places to hang out in LA are. We really would like to do some good vintage shopping (of course)! I have found a fair bit online, but I would love to hear if you have some sort of secret vintage shopping/restaurant/bar/hangout. And as no trip to LA is complete without visit Las Vegas, we will also be there for three days!!!

I'm Back Baby!

I am finally back on two feet! I am so happy about it. I ended up having two surgeries and a whole lot of pain but my ankle is now back better than ever (thanks to being reinforced with a tightrope).

Thank you everyone for your well wishes!!! 

Everything is starting to get back to normal, including my blogging so stay tuned!

A Sale and a Broken Leg

                                                           (not her actual leg)

It`s the Mum again, Ms Barnhouse has broken her leg and ankle, poor possum, she will be off her feet for the next 3 months ...bummer for her!

The Barnhouse has been planning for ages to have a mega sale this weekend, we didn`t factor broken legs a few days before the sale into the equation but as we have heavily print advertised the sale it is still going ahead.

More details are on our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/barnhouseantiques. We were hoping to get lots more pics up this week but surgery stopped that.

Just to give you an idea of what is available we have a 9 piece Louis XV walnut dining setting, old radiogram. lots of sideboards, meatsafes, desks, art deco light fittings and so much more. If you live in Sydney it will be so worth a visit. Details of the address will be posted on our facebook.
