Hello Ya'll,

Today I am joining Brayton Homestead Interiors for a barn chick party. We are to post pictures of barns in our part of the world. Now,  many of you know that I actually live in an antique 1700's barn. I guess you could say that I am a real Barn Chick:) So, I thought this would be so much fun! I love turning old items into something new so why not a cow barn into a home, right? I took my grand daughter Stella with me yesterday to photograph barns and boy do we have a lot of barns in this little town. Hope you enjoy our picks. Don't forget to check out Brayton Homestead for more barn chick barns:) There is a celebration goin' on there!
I love this pretty red one. It would make a great home.


Love how this hay barn has faded to different shades of brown and gray. Barns seem to look better with age, kind of like Barn Chicks, don't ya think;O

The inside of our front door. A huge key does actually open this door:)

Another perfect barn to live in. Can you imagine how much fun it would be to decorate it!

A Barn Dog.

This barn is actually this color and I love it, don't you?

Barn babies are my ultimate favorite.

I love this little cute barn.

I hope you enjoyed some of the barns here in Woodbury, CT. This is where I keep my Barn Chick Boots, green, of  course;)

'Till next time......Heeee Hawwwwww (not really sure what that means but it sounds fun doesn't it;)

  6. My grandmother used to live next door to us growing up, and she had a wonderful old red barn on her property. My grandmother was a painter (hobby mostly) and I have a wonderful painting she did of the old family barn which I cherish. Neat post and pictures!! Have a great weekend!

  7. Looove you pictures, each barn is so beautiful and yes I totally agree with how age makes them even better, kind of graceful! Grampy & Fibi Pearl are so special and gotta love the barn dogs too! Thanks so much for sharing, now I feel the need to go check out your barn! Living in a barn has always been a dream of mine! Another 'Barn Chick' Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

  14. Beautiful the old hardware!

  15. I was just going the breeze through a few Barn Chick posts this morning but now you say you live in a 1700s barn? I hope you have posted more pictures. I want to see! I have always dreamed of renovating a barn to living space. Half my day I do live in a barn anyhow.
    Great post and nice dogs.

  16. Beautiful barns! They reminded me so much of the ones I found while visiting New England (and posted on for the Barn Chicks party), so I had to go back to your profile to see where you're located. Barns are sooo much larger up north than down south where I'm from.

    Just joined you as a follower, too. Come for a visit some time.
