That's What Old Barns Are Made Of

Fading red paint, 





Rusty door handles,






Poles for hanging tobacco, long ago.....






Hay rolls tucked into a spare corner, 




And, jars for light covers. 






That's what old barns are made of.

  7. Fantastic old barn photos, Michelle! Love your posts! I started with a nuc (bee hive) this April and really need to be getting supers on them, but my neck has been out of whack lately so I am behind in so much here. But they are flying good and have seen them on the front of the hive like your photo when its been hot.

  9. What a great old barn!!! You've reminded me of some pictures I took in the barn at home many years ago. I think I'm gonna dig those out and scan them into the computer when I get home.

    No barns at all around where I live now.

  11. Simply FANTASTIC! Barns are unique as they come in so many designs and uses. From holding implements to the harvest as well as the use of the outside for advertising.

  19. Great photos of all the barn details. Love the old jar lights. Barns have such ambience, quiet and dark with the wonderful scent of hay and livestock. A cool place on a hot day. xx
