Barn Charm Tuesday!

Photobucket
I have no idea where I snapped this barn! It was one of the group of barns I found on the trip to Fulton last week. This old barn looks like it’s crying to me and oddly enough we were in Fulton yesterday at The Mama’s and I read this article from the Missourian. It is pretty much the same article Tricia linked to last week on her post in Barn Charm with the emphasis on Missouri barns. I hope you don’t mind me linking to it again Tricia, I think we can’t say it enough that our old barns need to be loved and preserved. I am going to be checking out the Missouri Barn Alliance and Rural Network.

  1. Great photo. That poor old handsome barn does look like it’s crying. 😦 I read an article the other day about a group of folks like the ones in the alliance that are refurbishing barns here in the south. It’s a sad thing the barns and the importance of barns is being lost in these modern times.

  2. The imagination required to see the tear streaks is wonderful…I consider myself imaginative, but then again…maybe not so much! Of course, once you said that, I can clearly see the tears. Love your photographs, and the idea of preserving barns is wonderful. There was one we heard about in Missouri when we were there, but when we went to see it, found that it had been torn down because of some contamination. It was a ceramic tile barn…would have been wonderful to see, but alas, it is gone now. Hope someone has photos somewhere!

  3. During a recent trip north through Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois and into Wisconsin I was dumbstruck by all the beautiful old barns. We have some lovely barns in Alabama as well, but different states seemingly have different barns. Some are lofty and tall with cupolas and weather vanes, while some were stout and massive, built for heavy snow while others are clearly designed for horses. Black barns, red barns, brown barns, white barns….I was astonished at the variety. …..Guess I have a thing for barns as well. Love your blog and your photos!

  5. Yep, Pix, I see the tear streaks from the “eyes”! If these beautiful old barns could talk, I just know they are saying “Save Me”!! Too many of our barns here in my area look like they are on their last legs. Sad!! Here’s hoping that some of these preservation groups will have an impact on people and something will be done before it’s too late. Thanks for the link! And did I say I loved the photo? The house looks lovely, too. Have a good evening…looks like it’s gonna rain.

  7. It does look like it’s crying Pix. But with a little maintainance, I think it could be happy again. Great photo of a lovely barn! I’m going to click over and read the Missourian article right now. 🙂

    1. Hello Barb! Thank you for your visit to Under the Oaks 🙂 At least this old barn is in use and I would hope that the people who live there would take care of it. Unless they are just waiting to let it go to put up a metal building. Hope not.

  8. Hi there — I see you replied to comments twice this morning, so I hope that means you’re OK after the tornadoes. Just wanted you to know I’m thinking about you and praying for all who were impacted by the storms. Surely hope all of your family and friends are OK!!! ❤

    1. All is fine here! Thank you for checking 🙂 Our thoughts are with those caught in the storm’s path. We have friends in Lebanon, friends close to Bennett Springs and Branson. All are fine, thankfully. Happy March 1st Little Things!

  9. These barns were probably crept its way to my subconscious. I just dreamt that I was standing on each of their doors last night simultaneously while taking photographs of the fields — THERE. I love what I saw in that dream. A peaceful place and simple life. Sigh. I couldn’t wait for that time we will be going home in wife’s province for good. A few months more … 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Rois for thinking of Under the Oaks for these two awards. I am appreciative and honored. I have decided though to become an award free blog since I don’t seem to get them passed on in a timely manner and don’t follow the rules. It is hard for me to narrow down any one blog/blogs to pass the awards on to 🙂 Congratulations to you for your awards!
