Barn Chick Blog Party is here!

Welcome
to the
BARN CHICKS BLOG PARTY
thanks for coming!!
to celebrate I went to a local
winery for a wine tasting with
purple barn doors..
yes, of course that was my yorkie Krumpet
I was holding...

the grounds featured great sculptures.

another barn perfectly restored with country casual style...

let me thank you for coming to the party!

I am so thrilled that you are here...

this wonderful property in Westport, MA
has everything-
a cool barn

a funky vintage trailer...

and a charming fruit stand.

red doors sing against the grey barn,
a winding road leads up to
huge barn - love...

please have a treat from the cookie jar...

Do you love being a Barn Chick?

I do...

My favorite barn of all!

the combination of wood and stone
is so elegant!

having fun?

Victorian barns have this odd mix
of rugged rural appeal
and high style architectural features...

a gorgeous window shape

and an unexpected yellow side door

that any barn Chick would love to enter

for a Barn Chick party

Thank you.

Wonderful images!
I think my favorite is the Victorian barn, I'm a sucker for an old, weathered barn.

Have a wonderful Friday, and have a super successful barn party!

Hugs,

Oh I wish I had known. I am a true barn chick. I found you round a bout by way of Barb's Rooster party. If I can find any barn pics on my harddrive maybe I should throw up a quick post, or see if I have something suitable in my blog archives. Even if I don't join this time I am becoming a follower ('cept I never read my readers) but will be visiting to see what else you have up.
