Red Charm with a Star

DSC_1653
We have been going past this red charmer for more years than I am willing to admit. Tricia’s Barn Charm has opened my eyes to so many charming barns. A thank you to her for that and getting us out on the roads of MissouREE! This little barn with a star sits at the top of a hill just outside Fulton, Missouri. Look close, the star is on the door!

Linking to Tricia’ Barn Charm this Country Tuesday!

  1. Just beautiful! Although I’ve always loved barns (growing up across from a dairy), I seem to be on the lookout for them even more, now that I participate in Barn Charm. Isn’t it fun??

    1. Dianna you are so right about Barn Charm opening our eyes to beautiful barns! And I am seeing so much more too. It is fun, it opens up a whole new view 🙂 I smiled when I saw your red barn. Great capture with the sunset Dianna.

  3. Oh that is a great barn, love the barn stars, I actually keep one on the front of my house when there isn’t a fall or Christmas wreath in it’s place.
    I followed your star link and love the barn with the painted on star with the cross beside it. It speaks to me.

    1. Katie I have a small star on my front porch but I would like a large, BIG, star for the house. I think I remember that you painted stars on your porch floor. I am not sure I remember correctly. I remember your porch floor being cute! I noticed the barn with the star and cross and thought it was an interesting idea. Hope you are having a good night. Today was another beautiful day in MissouREE. What’s up with the weather behaving so well?!

  4. Very beautiful. Isn’t Fulton where Churchill made his ‘iron curtain’ speech?

    Have you seen that the scroobipus pip has an ongoing photo challenge,on her page? This month it is wildlife and nature, I think you probably have a few in that category!

    1. Yes, Fulton is where Churchill made his ‘iron curtain’ speech. They have an interesting and beautifully built Memorial there. It is CH’s hometown and he watched it being built. I just visited there not too long ago with my Book Club and saw it from a totally different perspective. I think we go by there every time we are in town which is frequently because The Mama, CH’s Mom, still lives there. Also there is a college there with an equine program and I can’t stay away from the barn 🙂 I will have to check on the photo challenge at the Scrobius Pip’s blog~thank you 🙂 The WordPress photo challenge got a little BIG and overwhelming for me! I couldn’t get to all those comments and still have time to play at other things 🙂 I am heading to your blog now, I haven’t had my visit to Isobel and Cat’s Blog today!

      1. I am quite proud of myself for remembering that from school history lessons when I was fourteen or fifteen.
        You would like Newmarket; horses everywhere! I feel a bit the same as you about the Wp challenge, though I expect I shall still join in.
        Just seen you on mine, so maybe I should follow you over to the Scroob!

  5. I don’t think I’ve ever been to Fulton, but heard plenty about it w/ my parents being truck drivers for so many years… they’ve been ALL OVER! LoL!
    It’s a beauty of a barn & my sister & her friends went to Hermann a while back for the weekend & stayed in a b&b… she wants me to get up that way, said I’d absolutely love it there… so much history there! Maybe this spring, I’ll finally get to go! =)
    Thank you tons & tons for joining Barn Charm & thinking of this meme while out driving thru MissouREE! heheheee =)

    1. Tricia your sister is right! You would love Hermann and I for one would love to see your pictures when you visited there 🙂 We stay at a B&B there that we are loyal to and it is wonderful. We go during the week off season when it is quiet. I am loving getting out on the road and checking out barns. I think you brightened my winter 🙂

  6. Nothing like coming around a bend in a road and finding a charmer such as your red barn. There are many around us in our general area of North Caroline and East Tennessee. We also love them. The photo that is on my “Epiphany ” post recently is a nighttime shot of the light star-tree that the owner does each year. But the barn to which it is attached is equally lovely, and one that I admire every time we drive by. I’ll have to do a photo-study of it one of these days along with some of the others in the area. You have inspired me!

    1. Thank you for the visit Cheryl! I fell in love with this barn! I want it 🙂 I am enjoying every dang day of this weather and so is CH. He spent all day outside watering the shrubs and beds in the yard. We need us some rain!

      1. I thought I’d pop over and give you & CH a link to the recipe, but I don’t know how to post a link very well in comments. So I made a post about them on my blog with a link to the recipe. 😉

  7. Hi Pix!
    Oh how I love barns..especially old red ones. This reminds me that hubby and I need to get out and drive the country roads around here looking for old barns again. Seems we’ve been so busy around the farm that we’ve totally forgotten how much fun that was. Thanks for the reminder!
    Hope your week is a good one…is the snow heading your way tomorrow?
    Maura 🙂

    1. Maura, they are saying a tenth of an inch. ” A skiff of snow!” Loved visiting your blog this morning 🙂 I am serious about those tummy scritches for Rosey and Hope. I’d be interested if they like/love it. Right in the middle underneath where the girth would hit. Maybe a bit back 🙂 Snow for you?

    1. Nancy that would be great to have some Northern MissouRAH barns! Join in! I thought the MissouRAH pronunciation was in the Southern part of MissouREE 🙂 Don’t you just love the MissouRAH vs. MissouREE thing. I think I might have pronounced it MissouRAH back in college some 100 years ago, but I’m not sure. Thank you for visiting Nancy!

    1. Thanks Little Things! I like the star too 🙂 Enjoy your Thursday, we have a skiff of snow from last night! We were walking around in sweatshirts yesterday watering the growing things in the yard. Actually CH was in short sleeves. Weird winter!

  10. Wonderful shot. Wonderful barn.

    Now see, you say MissouREE, I was corrected once by a man from Missour-a. He had mispronounced Oregon (Orygun), and told me that he’d pronounce it correctly if I’d pronounce his home state correctly. lol Sadly, I still say it MissouREE.

    1. Thanks Carole! I know, the whole pronunciation of MissouREE is a fun subject. I am cool with however it is said. I believe back in college I might have said MissouRAH~Oh My! But here is how I look at it~spaghetti, macaroni, safari, Missouri……MissouREE! Thank you for stopping by Under the Oaks, no matter how you say Missouri 🙂
