Barn Love

After 4 months of COLD and RAINY weather…Buttercup Barn renovation, has been reignited!
Before Picture 2008

SHE is the structure that anchors our little piece of land….the reason we call our 4 acres, FARM.
I’ve grown attached to the possibilities…..and dreamed of this renovation for 13 years…brainstorming, sketching, researching…..
Waiting for the right time, something to click, and the right people to do the job.
As SHE starts to transform….
I have RE-FALLEN in love with her….
AND what she will become…
Stay tuned for how SHE will be transformed…..PURE GOODNESS!!!!!

Also, don’t forget…it is “A Beautiful Life” Friday over at The Inspired Room . Take a few minutes to read about “Summer entertaining for real people”. It is a great weekend treat!


Down home friends and what they say...

If I remember from the late winter/springtime, she will become a workshop/artist retreat, right? Lucky you!

I can’t wait to see your barn. I feel nostalgic the word “barn”. I grew up in the countryside and barn was were we used to play.

I really adore the old barn. Seems like yesterday.

Thanks for sharing. Have a blessed w/end w/ your dearest!

I’m so happy to see an old barn given new life. It seems like most of the old barns around here are allowed to fall down and/or are never repaired. So sad!

I grew up on a farm and have such a fondest for old barns. I can tell the transformation is going to be beautiful!

My father often said “They don’t build them like they use to”. And he was correct, they don’t.

Lovely weekend!
