Barn Charm and a Day Trip

Photobucket
First barn I found on the back road to Fulton yesterday. Priority for yesterday~snap some barns! Then pick up The Mama(CH’s Mom) and go to Williamsburg to Marlene’s which is located right next door to Crane’s Country Store. Marlene’s for the best CHEESEBURGER in MissouREE and if you love Carhartt clothing, Crane’s little country store is one of the places to find it! A beautiful country sunny kinda day. We even had a little wine time before leaving The Mama’s. A sweet white from a winery in Liberty, MO. My country self had a happy Monday. Barn snaps, lunch, a little wine time and a beautiful ride home. Thank you Tricia! You have us out traveling the beautiful country of Missouri! Got to get going, Book Club meets this morning. Can’t wait to get home and visit some Charming Barns!

Linking to Tricia’s Barn Charm Tuesday!

  1. Pretty old barn! You had me look twice when I read Williamsburg – we, of course, have a Williamsburg here in Virginia – not far from where I live!

    Sounds like a wonderful day for you.

  2. Hi Pix, you found a winner in that wonderful weathered red barn on your day trip to Fulton! I haven’t been to Crane’s, it looks interesting. My hubby has been wearing Carhart jeans for quite some time, he thinks they’re more comfy than Levis and I think they hold up longer.
    Have fun at book club!

    1. Carhartt are the only jeans CH will wear and they fit him the best! I am pretty sure you would enjoy Cranes and something to munch on at Marlene’s. Nothing healthy there though and not exactly a heart healthy place πŸ™‚ Book Club was very fine!

  3. We’ve eaten at Marlene’s. HmmmmMmmmm Good! Took some friends of ours from WI to Cranes a few years ago and they acted like they had died and gone to heaven. They are still talking about it πŸ™‚

    Another cool barn. Looks familiar πŸ˜‰

    1. Marlene’s is something good for sure! Crane’s is a cool place. Love the old store and the stove and all the people that buy sandwiches for a buck. Those old wood floors and the front door just make me happy! Deanna the barn is between Guthrie and Millersburg.

  4. Another great picture. This one is different. I havent decided yet how it makes me feel when I look at it. There is mystery in that one. Sounds like a good day was had all the way round.

    1. I wasn’t sure about this picture at all Christina but I let it fly. It feels dark to me. Scary almost and not in a Halloween fun kind of way. And I am not feeling dark or unhappy, quite the opposite. I was almost tempted to change the picture but I thought it needed to stay for some reason. Probably because I spent too much time on it πŸ˜‰ We did have fun. Lots of laughing even BEFORE the wine.

  5. What a beautiful picture! I love the picture in your header too. My in-laws live in Southern MO and it is so pretty there! Found you through Barn Charm–it’s my first time linking up!

    1. I just spent some time, lots of time at your blog and plan to visit more. The inspiration I got there. Of course it may cost me a few bucks but CH and I will be hitting some antique stores the rest of the week looking for a small desk for the bedroom to use as a nightstand! Thank you for the kind words on my barn picture. Glad you found Under the Oaks because it led me to your blog!

    1. Isobel saying that it is a lovely picture is very kind of you. I understand how it would not be a favorite. It kind of creeps me out. It didn’t at first when I was editing it but somewhere after hitting the publish button and after I got home from Book Club it just hit me as being very dark. Scary. I think I need to do another post and move it on down the page! It does rain here, buckets of rain but this year we are way behind in our rainfall totals. It is very dry and was dry all last summer and Fall. Our west pasture caught fire!

    1. I think there are a few Williamsburgs. I should google. That would be fun if you joined Barn Charm. I am going to try to get back on track and do Six Word Friday but I haven’t heard the word yet. Patti I love the new notifications thingie. Is it just me though, I have noticed that it loads 9 notifications and the bottom one is impossible to hit reply because it falls off my screen and then I have to reply via email…..I think a l just had a lightbulb moment. I am going to try to reduce my zoom percentage. Enjoy your Wedbesday! Hope your back is better.

    1. Thanks Nancy! It was a great little day trip and the scenery was great but since we have been home I have been missing palm trees and all things Florida. I have an email I want to write and shoot to you but it has been crazy here and I haven’t had the time to put it together. It will be coming πŸ™‚

  7. Love the twisted tree and big red barn Pix! I’m going to have to try some of that sweet white wine from Liberty, MO. We live pretty close to Liberty. In fact, we do our grocery shopping at the Liberty Walmart.
    Glad you had a nice day!

    1. Hi Theresa! CH’s Mom was up that way on one of her trips that her bank offers for us old seniors. I guess the winery was included in the trip. I would like to see the winery myself, but not by riding around on a big old bus πŸ˜‰ If we were coming there I would shoot an email. Maybe could see you for a bit πŸ™‚

  8. Hello Pix!! What a wonderful photo….and a wonderful barn. I hope this one is being used…it’s so sad to see them sitting neglected. You live in such a beautiful State to go barn hunting in. One day hubby will get over to your corner of the world and get some wonderful photo’s of MissouREE πŸ˜‰ Maybe we’ll find that burger place and also check out the clothing store πŸ™‚ Hope your day is a good one!! XO πŸ™‚

    1. Good Afternoon Maura! I think this barn was definitely being used. You know I clicked back over to read your post again because I was telling CH about it and first time around I only saw the first barn with the stone foundation. When I scrolled or either it didn’t load right away I didn’t even SEE the outside of Mr. Cifarelli’s barn/home. The outside is very awesome and your shot got that wall that adjoins the stable. The dark textures on that wall are very beautiful. I can’t bellieve I missed. I must have just scrolled too fast beyond it to look at the inside. Yep! I want to live there but I don’t want to do any reno work πŸ™‚ I couldn’t believe all the work you did on your hardwoods. I wouldn’t have been able to move my arms for weeks it I had done that. You must be in shape woman! If you two make it over this way you better let us know!

  9. I love your pictures of barns. The barns themselves are just beautiful, but the pictures look like paintings. So evocative of times long gone somehow. Maybe because we don’t have barns like that here!

    I don’t know if this comment will post. I’ll try! WordPress usually spams my comments!.

    1. I did indeed find your first comment with very kind words about my barn snaps in spam and the second comment waiting for moderation because WP has moderation on first time commenters. I am so sorry you had to try three times. I appreciate the time you took to comment and I certainly want you to be able to say “Hello” and visit Under the Oaks without having to jump through any hoops! I clicked over to visit your blog and want to return and get cozy and read. I am just beginning to work with textures and sometimes those poor old barns seem happier, in my opinion with a little TLC in the form of textures to soften them up a bit and give them some detail. Thank you for keepin’ on when WordPress misbehaved! Thanks for visiting Under the Oaks and thank you for your good words.

    1. Thank you so much! I certainly enjoyed myself at your blog. Six Word Fridays is a lovely meme and I have met such nice people. Spring is coming but you are right, although I hadn’t thought about this way until I read your reply to someone on your blog, Winter has been one long November. So true!
