Here's my charming barn!

A little bit of wear just seems to add to the charm.
This is from Illinois country...
it is one we passed on a recent rambling drive.

If you want to see more barns, or have a barn of your own that you would like to share, sign in at Tricia's Barn Charm meme.

You are right it does add to the charm.

love the 3rd shot!

Judy said...

This one does have charm...I love it!

Jill said...

This is terrific! I love the old, weathered wood.

Donna said...

The gray wood is beautiful. I get the feeling this barn is like a game of pick-up-sticks - if you removed one piece from it, it might fall! Nice shots.

Mari said...

I agree, worn barns are the most charming! This is a nice one.

Tammy said...

It may be showing some wear, but it looks like it still has good bones. As Mari said, the time worn boards add to it's charm.

Debbie said...

i agree....the older, the more torn and tattered, the better. this one is a real charmer!!

EG Wow said...

Lots of natural air conditioning here... but I agree that it does add charm. :)

Elaine said...

I love it! Looks like a tired old fellow.

Angela said...

Love the last picture! Beautiful!

Martha Z said...

I often wonder why so many barns seem to be in such a state of disrepair. Are they no longer in use?

Ginny said...

This one does need some work, but that seems to make it all that much more artistic and photogenic.

Beth said...

I like this particular design with the balance of the two sides.
It has wonderful character--lovely charm! :>)

Tricia said...

Yep, nice barn, Rose, & the wear does add to the charm! Love the doors up top... rugged, but love it! =)

This is a great looking, old barn. I like it's shape and the variety of colors it presents. The wear and tear seem to fit it rather well. Nice post, Rose!

George said...

I really like this barn. It does need some TLC, but you're right -- the weather-worn appearance just adds to the charm.

This is a neat old barn. Thank you for the nice comments on my blog.

It looks so happy and well used. I see horses standing in the side sheds.(well I see horses everywhere) I like it!! MB

LeAnne said...

Awesome barns! Great, all of them!

Kim, USA said...

It's a great looking barn though. I could tell the owner tries to repair the walls and I like that white sheets that they put as a wall, very practical it won't worn out easy. ^_^

I like how it looks like someone is at least "trying" to keep it standing. It does have charm.

MarieElizabeth said...

I like the sides of this one, they add so much character.

Jill Wellington said...

The older, the more charm when it comes to barns! I'm looking for some fall colors around a barn...so far, no luck in open farm country.

Mary said...

I think that you are able to find charm in any barn, just because you like barns :-) LOL

Carole said...

It is a bit worn, but it's still lovely.
