I'm a Barn Chick

well, sort of...

Here we all are with Karen, strutting our stuff;
showing off the "barn chick" fun.

is calling all Barn Chicks!

This all started when Karen was posting about some of the
wonderful barns in her local area.
Several of us with an affinity to barns thought we should all get
together and have a party.
So that's what all this is about;
showing our local barns that we love to see.

I grew up in the country
and we had a big old gray barn on the property.

I've always loved the look of them,
all worn and weathered.

But now the old barn is gone,
fallen down amidst time and memories.

So I've had to find my inspiration in the ones I see,
on the way to Spring Creek Antiques and Tea Room in Ozark,
where I have my booth space.

These are the barns I pass each time I go there.

It sets on a very steep hill on the main drag in Ozark.
Can you see the stone foundation?
It's recently been re-sided, but I love it still
Bright Red and Eye catching.

I like to take the back routes.
And enjoy the winding road.

This one is interesting because it's hexagonal,
you know, it has six sides!

They have horses and mules, but didn't see them today.
Hunting for shade I would think.

This is another one, more like the typical Missouri Barn
but smaller.

Now if only I would have had someone there to take my picture...

But since I didn't,
and I don't have the proper Barn Chick attire in "real life",
I decided I'd make a "virtual Barn Chick outfit".

I'm  really lovin' my "get up" here.
Pretty spiffy in my book.

(Those boots are callin' my name)

So join the roundup of all the great local barn flavor,
and head on over to see Karen and all the other chicks at

Now get that straw outta your hair!

Wanna be a Barn Chick?

My friend Karen over at Brayton Homestead Interiors is putting together a little Barn Party.
On August 6th she's inviting everyone over to show off their local barns. She had a great post of some of the local flavor up there in her native rural Massachusetts. She gussied herself up in her best barn attire and flirted with the camera to share some great photos of her hometown barns.

So then Barn Chicks was born.

Of course me and my big mouth said, "Heck yeah, Karen I want to do this too!", when I don't even have a pair of cowboy boots to my name. I have some close Texas friends so I guess I shouldn't divulge that sensitive information.

Now go visit Karen and sign up to show off your local barns. (they don't have to be yours personally)  I think it will be great fun to see the regional barns; their sizes, colors, and unique designs. Get as wild and crazy as you like!

Let's see, now where did I put those overalls?...

C'mon all you Barn Chicks, let's show 'em off!
