Old Barns – A Red One + Aged Music Page Printable

It’s been a while since I’ve shared any photos of old barns, but one showed up at my door this week, so to speak! Remember the gorgeous old barn that was just down the road from my house? It was owned by my mailman’s father, but was torn a few months ago. Well, a few days ago the mailman knocked at my door. He had 2 little girls with him and wondered if  his daughters could pet our “pony”. She isn’t really a pony, she’s {Read More}

The Barn Quilt and the Bathroom

Have you ever felt absolutely, totally lost and clueless, and you just didn’t know what to do? Well, when I was in kindergarten, our classroom had its own bathroom that we didn’t have to share with the rest of the kids in the school. On the outside of the bathroom door was light switch that lit up and turned red when you turned on the light and went into the bathroom.  There was no lock on the door, so this red {Read More}

DIY Watercolor Pillow or Wall Art with Transfer Artist Paper

Some people can’t wait to try every new kind of technology that hits the market.      I am not one of those people. I avoid new technology like a toddler voids a nap, like a husband avoids to-do lists, like a teen avoids chores, like a…      …..well, you get the idea. I don’t like new technology. Once I learn to do something, I don’t want to learn it again every time a new version comes out, and in this day and age, {Read More}

Hello World and an Old White Barn

I have a lot of readers that don’t live in the United States, and I need to apologize to all of them! It wasn’t until a reader commented that she wished my stencils were available to non-US residents, that I realized that I had discriminated against you all, because all my stencil listings were only set up for US shipment.  It’s a great big world out there, and I want people to enjoy my stencils all over the map!

Old Wooden Barn

I photographed this old wooden barn on the same road trip as the big big red barn that is my dream barn. I love the well-aged wood and peak roof on this one, and the setting is so pretty as well, with the field in front waiting to be planted. The image without my watermark is available as a free printable HERE. You’ll find all of my barn printables HERE.

Gorgeous Wood and Brick Barn Photograph Printable

Whenever we go on any kind of road trip, I keep my camera with me, and keep my eyes open for old barns to photograph. On our way to New Mexico, when I spotted the most amazing wood and brick barn I’ve ever seen. By the time I spotted it though, we had already driven past the road we needed to turn on, and my husband didn’t want to turn around and go back, but he promised we’d find it on {Read More}

a Prairie Barn photography printable

In my quest to photography as many old barns as I can, I’ve also become curious about the names of different styles of barns.  I photographed this old red barn in Illinois a few weeks ago, and did a little research, and discovered that this type of barn is often called a “prairie barn”.  The red paint on this one is fading, but it’s still very quaint.  I really like the two sets of 9-pane windows and the dutch door. {Read More}

Big Red Barn Photograph Printable

When I shared my DIY barn quilt a few days ago, I teased that this beautiful big red barn was actually my barn, before revealing what my barn really looks like. I took this photo a little over a week ago, when I was visiting family a few hours away.  It really is my dream barn.  Can you imagine a barn like this converted into a house?  I would want my bedroom up in the hay loft where that row of windows is. {Read More}

DIY Barn Quilt

It isn’t a big secret that I love old barns, but have I ever told you about MY barn? Well, it’s a great big old red barn, with a white door, and a hayloft on top. There are horses in their stalls, and chickens in a coop, and we gather fresh eggs from them every day. On the outside, hollyhocks and sunflowers are growing, and the old water spigot never stops dripping. Hanging on the side of my barn is a big, beautiful barn quilt.
