It’s Tuesday! It’s Barn Charm!

Photobucket
This is one of the barns from the Washington, Mo trip. Lots of barns on that road! Still slogging around in blue farm boots but now full of cheeseburger and sweet potato fries. Sunburned ears too! Barn Charm is a country kinda adventure. I need to hunt new barns but Tricia’s mention of her encounter with seed ticks has me a little skeered. Off! will be on my shopping list. Summer is going to put a whole new spin on snapping barns. Ticks. I hates them. Barns. I love em!

  1. I love the quilt block barns! I hate ticks too…and chiggers! They seem to love me though…have to be so careful. This is a great looking barn – I am looking forward to finding that quilt-block barn trail someday!

    1. Good Morning Linda! I have only seen a few quilt blocks on barns and now that I want to take a picture of them I really haven’t seen them! I think I would find more of them up in the Northern part of MissouREE.

  2. Now THAT’s a mighty fine looking barn! Deep rusty red with the quilt blocks – lovely combination! Ticks, chiggers, skeeters, etc. not invited on photo jaunts yet they seem to show up anyway……nasty critters!

    1. Yes Isobel quilt blocks on barns in Missouri have started to pop up along with stars on barns. There is a Quilt Trail for barns but I would have to check on it. Not as many as I would like to see! Kind of like Missouri’s wine trails that you follow and sample wine :)

  3. BEAUTIFUL!! But my mind is on the sweet potato fries!!
    I am planning a trip to MO in June to visit some friends in Waynesville. I hope to get some great photos!!

  4. They’re definitely no fun! But I just love the barns we get out of the experience, this one included… what a beauty & so red!

    Thanks so much for pointing Veronica in our direction, much appreciated…

    don’t forget the OFF! heheheee =)

    1. Your welcome about Veronica, I love her pictures and I noticed she had a lot of barns so Barn Charm popped in my mind! I will brave the ticks for barn hunting, it will be the heat that gets the best of me. She really was that red, well pretty close. :) She had just gotten a new coat of paint.

  5. Gorgeous barn Pix! Love the beautiful quilt blocks, but hate ticks and chiggers. Got to get some small critter repellent this weekend… thank you for the reminder!

  6. What a sweet barn. I love the effects you added.

    The ticks are definitely out in full force already. So far I’ve only encountered the full size ones, which I can handle. Seed ticks are an entirely different story.

  7. Charming place Pix. Love the post title as captures and a few words always work for me! Man Pix, with this unseasonably warm weather, I would guess everything insecty will be in full force this summer. Everyone will have to pay attention no matter where we live. Eek! Margie

  8. I love when they put those quilt patterns on barns! The ticks make me mad! I’m afraid they will be bad this year because of the warm winter, I’ll be stocking up on bug repellent too !!!!!

  9. I really enjoy the quilt block barns, they’re like blocks of cheer doting the landscape. :)
    I have ticks too… gross little creepies they are.

  10. This is a fine barn you’ve posted today. I like the decorations on this one. I have yet to find a barn around here with decoration of that kind.

    1. Good Morning Don! I have found the quilt block barns to be few and far between. Might be I am not looking in the right area of MissouREE. Thank you so much for your visit to Under the Oaks. I enjoyed my visit to your blog, but when I went back this morning I could not find your barn post from yesterday. Maybe I just wasn’t awake enough! :lol:

  11. This red barn is a beauty, Pix! Love the quilt blocks on the barn, I don’t remember seeing one with 2 blocks…neat! I’m a bit slow at blogging/commenting this week and I need to make time to go on a “barn run”. Enjoy your day!

  12. Lovely barn. Love the ‘quilt’ signs.

    Funny, we were down at the coast yesterday (Oregon) and in a town that we visit quite frequently, many of the buildings now sport a quilt plaque on their sides. Some are barns, some are simply businesses. There is a textile museum in the area so we assume they are supporters, but don’t as yet know the entire story.

    1. Thank you! I love the quilts too, wish I could find more of them. I am trying to talk CH into painting a quilt block on our workshop but I don’t think it would hold the same charm. :D Thank you for stopping by!

  13. No exaggeration, your barn pictures make me gasp every time I click on to here. :)
    I have to ask (because barns or quilts are not part of our tradition), is there a special symbolism to having a quilt patch/block on one’s barn? or is it simply for decoration?

    1. Yes and yes :) I think for some people their quilts that they paint are from a family heritage and others just pick a quilt block or patch because it suits them. There is a real trend in Missouri right now to add a quilt block to your barn. Stars were the thing for quite a bit and you still see them. I would love to hear from someone that knows more about the quilts or from someone who has a quilt block on their barn.

Just say "hey"! Say more if you want, that's good too :)
