Random Five Friday


Just another tobacco barn here in Kentucky.  Its doors thrown open to aid in drying out the moist leaves.  

Initially I thought this tree house was interesting, but on second thought, it is just creepy. 

I am slight addicted to Fred Harvey Era bracelets and am amassing a small collection. I admit that Ebay is my shop of choice...... never pay retail!!!!  

If you feel like rockin' out a bit this morning, then just click here.  

What happens when you take your son to the local small town farm store to buy an ax handle?  You get to chat with the ladies, buy a candle, (this farm store thinks chicks are important too), and you get a hug and blog suggestion.  Thank you Ms. Evelyn!!!!  

Linking up with Nancy today!  Pay her a visit!  Random Five Friday has become my favorite post of the week :)

  1. I didn't know what that was, the tobacco barns here are square and made out of pine logs with flues going up through the roof to dry the tobacco. Most are covered up with virginia creeper now as there is not much tobacco.

    1. There is not as much tobacco being grown here as there used to be. Our barns typically have many more doors on the sides, but no flue.

  3. The tobacco barn reminds me of my two years in NC. Those bracelets are very nice. You'll have to share a pic of your collection. Hope you have a nice weekend.

  5. There is nothing like the sweet smell of tobacco drying in the barn (or shed). Once you sniff it, you will never forget it. I have cousins in Kentucky, and even though it was years ago, looking at your photo today took me back. I'm going to check out the bracelets. Kind of a jewelry nut myself.

  7. Neat barn,looks like they might need more windows on the top! Love those bracelets too, but not those prices...too high for me. That tree house is spooky...it doesn't look very old.

  9. Your link to the bracelets reminded me of a similar silver bracelet that was given to me some time ago that held some rather not-so-nice memories, so I sold it on ebay awhile back. I do love these bracelets -- you have great taste! :)

    Neat old barn -- I imagine the drying tobacco has a unique smell. Thanks for joining in Michelle. You always provide such interesting links to explore.

  11. That's a great old barn. I suppose there aren't so many standing anymore, or being used. I will check out the bracelets.

  13. Probably my son won't tell an ax handle from a baseball bat, but I am sure I would like that kind of shop!

  16. Interesting barn shot. Such an elaborate treehouse and a sad to see it abandoned like that.

  17. love that old barn ... they make such good photographs. that's quite a treehouse -- too bad it is abandoned. when i lived in new mexico i always checked out the pawn shops for old navajo/native american jewelry -- beautiful! Yippee for 5!!! :)

  18. Tobacco barns used to be fairly common here in my area, Michelle, but not anymore. I have one or two pictures of ours, from the early 80's when we grew burley. I loved those plants, and the barn full of golden brown. Thanks for the memory prod.

  19. Great shot of the barn! I've never seen one where the doors were opened to aid in drying. Most of the ones in our area aren't being used anymore. In the next county over, there's some effort to preserve the old barns.

    That tree house is rather creepy!

  20. I've never even seen a photo of a tobacco farm, this is a fine photo and I really like the xmas deco link...

  21. Did I miss something only one photo I don't see the tree house ??

  22. My sister and I were just talking about how few tobacco barns we see in Kentucky now. Great shot of this one. xo Laura

  23. Wow - cool bracelets - totally understand the addiction! The tree house - I don't know, definitely odd!

  24. I can't decide what I think of that treehouse. Local farm stores that cater to all members of the family are fun places to hang out! Ooohh.like the bracelets...you might have some competitive bids on E-Bay, though. :-)

  25. Creepy or not, I'd like to hangout around this place. Lots of adventures here I bet.

  26. Very neat to see the tobacco barn.
    We have old spud cellars here.

  27. its sentenced like "Take your son to buy an axe handle" I don't think there is a store around here for that. But maybe I'm just clueless. My oldest son would love that. I adore silver and turquoise too. I have one bracelet. I bought it on a family road trip when I was 15 (and I still wear it once a week or more).

  28. This looks like an interesting vintage barn. Thansk for yoiu fgood wishes. Still raining here --we are not out of the woods, yet!

  29. All very exotic to me. I've seen tobacco drying in France, but it's not grown in the UK that I know of.
    I agree, the tree house is creepy. And also sad - what a waste of money.

  32. Nothing says rural, American more than a barn, especially one that is dedicated to something. Be it tobacco, dairy or livestock. Barns are in every state.
