Brayton Homestead Interiors is holding a Barn Chick Blog Party. I thought this would be fun and easy enough since I live in farm country. Why don't you pull up a seat and enjoy.
While taking pictures I notice there are more barns then houses in this town. It even looks like some barns were turned into houses. They can't say "Hey don't leave the door open does it look like we live in a barn?"
Do you love barns the way I do? *Confession* I let the kids watch the movie Charlotte's Web when ever they want because I love looking at the barn in that movie.
Red barns are so classic. They always have hammered black door hinges and white trim. Shabby chic barns have chipping white paint and hints of green trim. I want this kind of barn.
Where we are moving to has a barn in the back side yard. I have big plans for that barn. Sorry can't share it's a secret ...but a good secret that someday I will share.
Barns are filled with the smell of fresh hay and animal laughter. Animals laugh - you should hear my mom's ducks. They always say "HA HA HA" while we walk up the road. I still don't know what is so funny to them.
Do you know why there are a bunch of movies that depict the romantic scene of a couple running to get out of the rain and end up in a barn? If you have ever stood in a barn, when rain drops started to splash on its tin roof, you would understand. It's magical.
Barns have that sweet rustic appeal with their old beams and rusted hinges. I bet if barns could talk they would have wonderful old stories to tell about farmers that have long passed or how children play hide and seek in them.
If you ever get a chance, please stand inside a barn and look up. You will see the most amazing architecture. Just think there have been barn raising parties for years. Do people still have them?
Well I hope you enjoyed my barn pictures - If you would like more barn goodness please visit the other Barn Chick Blog Party members :)
