barn charm






I photographed this barn on the weekend.  I don't know
how old it is and it's not used for much nowadays
even though the sign says 'hay barn'.








This little building was once a chicken coop
and a roadside vegetable stand. 


An old potato planter.

I am linking with Barn Charm today.


I'll be back soon with a post of our visit to
St. Andrew's by the Sea.

Blessings,
Pamela

  5. Hi Pamela what lovely photographs. I love old barns too. I shoot a lot of them planning to paint them but so far have only done two. I like the old ones almost falling down.
    Blessings for today.

  6. HI Pamela! Oh, what lovely images you snap. The old red barn is so charming and all the farm tools. I can see you're having a good time.

  8. I think this barn owner was a collector of farm memorabilia--including odd little outbuildings. It's nice that these places can be used for modern purposes while preserving the structure itself as for a vegetable stand.

  11. A charming barn Pamela. I wonder why they painted the barns red so long ago - the same thing here in Ontario.
    I hope the little building was a veggie stand before it became a chicken coop. :-)

  12. I love the design of the wood siding!
    The little 'hay barn' sign is charming. A little TLC and clean up and this would be a lovely little setting.
    I like the weathered little chicken coop too!

  13. I hope it was a vegetable stand 1st! LoL!

    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have both signs... I love old signs almost as much as old barns... no, not really... I love old barns much much more... but, you know what I mean! =)

    Thank you very much for sharing & joining =)

  14. Lovely post. What is it about red barns that just work visually.
    They also look great in the winter with big evergreen wreaths on them!

  22. Pamela barns as old as they are have a charm to them. I live in a rural area with
    so-o-o many barns!
    Thank you for your comforting words re: my Paisley and her health. hugs Anna xo

  25. Love barns, and red barns, and old signs...ah country life.

    Too bad that sign was placed so close to the window, that would have been a great window shot.

  28. Hello my friend, Red barns are my favourite, so beautiful! I hope everything is good with me, I'm well, just enjoying my grands and helping my girl out when I can. There's some gorgeous scenery here, but would you believe I left my camera behind?!?! I'm so mad at myself for that.
    Hugs, Cindy
