Homestead Living Barn Chick Style

Here at the Brayton Homestead, summer is easy living, country style. Simple decorating with splashes of red is all that is needed.


Dining outside this summer has been most enjoyable. Typically, I am not a "let's eat out on the patio" in the heat kind of girl.


sorry to disappoint my fellow Barn Chick girls. I would love to have the original barn to my 214 year old house but it is long been torn down by previous owners.

So I take pics of other wonderful barns instead. Remember to join in on the next BARN CHICK meeting on September 3rd all day! All about apples and barns, recipes, pics, etc.! Come link in your barn post here.


Krumpet has been indulging in alfresco dining as well at our fav coffee shop.


Revel in every last minute of the summer weather and thanks for the visit...

Hi Barn Chicks Queen! Love your outdoor dining area... so sad your original old barn was torn down... maybe you should put up a new one? Little Krumpet looks adorable! Doggie kisses Krumpet!...

What a beautiful setting you have and a lovely place to do your alfresco dining. I see Krumpet fits right in to the alfresco atmosphere.

Your patio looks inviting~ I am partial to the color red anyway!
Despite the fact your house no longer has its barn, at least your house have provenance. I live in a typical 80's ranch house.
I look forward to your next Barn Chick Meeting, I really do.

Hi Karen.... Yes, I will host the October Barn Chicks meeting, but will need some help with the link thing... I know how to link people on my sidebar, that will work! I already have some fun ideas! Drop me an email if you can... also, you have more Barn Chick Followers than I do... maybe no one will come to mine??? Then, it will be like the old Lesley Gore song... "It's my party and I'll cry if I want to"!... xoxo Julie Marie
