Participating in Barn Charm again!

I have been MIB--missing in blogland for more reason that one. Had a summer cold for a while...been gone, etc. So thought I would make my re-entry on my favorite time of the week...Barn Charm time. And I finally got to stop and get photos of this barn that we pass every time we go see Lorelei.

It was built in the mid 1800's....isn't it a beauty? The inside is full of antique booths. Lighting is poor but have a couple photos I will post the next time I post. This post is full of photos as it is.

But I just could not leave any of them out.

I walked all around the barn...the owners were very, very nice and seemed to understand my love for the barn.

I think this end is used for loading and unloading items...

I didn't think till I got outside, but I did not see the way to go upstairs, though I think I realize now the reason for this one door being shut. I don't recall if it had a lock on it or not.

And now we are back to the front.

I am so glad to finally have photos of this barn...I have been admiring it for years and years.

A barn that beautiful deserves lots of photos! I would never have guessed it was that old. Wonderful! And my favorite color...which you don't see on many barns:-)

Built in the mid 1800's & still standing & still being used! That's so awesome! I love hearing & seeing these kinds of stories! Can't wait to see inside

Glad you're back & thanks for joining, Rose! =)

Becky said...

Oh, I love this barn, what a beauty and better yet antiques inside. I wonder what kind of animals called it home back when?
About the creek behind my house, come on down anytime and we'll go fishing. The water level is down right now, but with a couple good rains that will change.
Have a great rest of the week.
