I am a BARN ENTHUSIAST -- I LOVE barns of all sorts -- old barns, red barns round barns, tall barns, short barns -- okay, you're getting the idea here...some other things I also love are quilts, anything Americana and old advertising signs. Sometimes these things go together -- I'm talking about barns that are painted with a quilt design, a flag or other Americana motif or my very favorite, an old advertising sign!! I remember a few years ago when my family was vacationing in Ohio -- we were driving along an old country road on our way to the Amish country around Kidron, OH, and we rounded a bend to see a glorious site -- a Mail Pouch Barn! I squeeled with excitment!!
When we lived in Minnesota, there was both a barn with a large painted flag
and a quilt barn that I got to pass on a regular basis -- actually I'd drive out of my way to get to see either site.
Sometimes these signs are on other out buildings besides the barn...but my favorites will always be the barns.
A couple of months ago a friend gave me a special gift -- it was custom made just for me and Faithfulness Farm -- I was very taken back by both the thoughtfulness of the gift and how well my Faithfulness Farm was captured. Thank you David! I get to gaze on this site as I enjoy my morning coffee on the back porch!
All the photos in the post, with the exception of the Faithfulness Farm sign, were borrowed from here.
