This is another barn I found when we were in Kentucky. I always like barns that show a little wear and tear, and this one has that. I love the shape of this barn and the worn paint. To see more barns from all over the world, visit Tricia at Bluff Area Daily.
In honor of Saint Patrick's Day, this man came to the Nursing Home I work at, to play and sing some Irish music. He played these bagpipes and some type of old Irish flute. It was fun to listen to and our residents really enjoyed it!
Isn't this a great barn? I like its shape, the weathered wood, the setting and the stone foundation. I also like its story. This barn belongs to my husbands brother. It started out in life as a much bigger barn, on a different property. When my BIL noticed a barn that was falling apart, he offered to take it down in exchange for the wood. He salvaged what he could and started building this barn on his property. He did much of the work with hand tools, and one day had a barn raising with many friends, family and people from church. The barn wasn't finished on that day but a lot was done. We've all seen barns that were falling apart and I love how he took that old barn and made something beautiful and useful from it.
Here's a closer shot of the old implement in front of that stone foundation.
I am a Christian wife, mom to 5 and Grandma to two adorable little girls. I have 2 daughters and a son who were born to me and 2 sons who joined our family by marrying our daughters. I have been married to a wonderful Christian man for over 30 years. I work as a nurse at a long term care center, where I am blessed to get to know many older people and their families.
