Barn Charm with a little surprise!

I saw this beautiful old barn about a mile from our condo in the mountains of NC. And when hubby slowed down for me to get a better shot I saw something special!

It was raining but I think that just added to the ‘charm’!

And I’m sure that’s why no one was outside ‘swinging’!

Can you go back to the first photo and see the sweet little swing on the side of the barn now that you’ve seen it close up?

I’m joining Barn Charm HERE !

We’re back in Florida and thankful to be home for the winter months. I’m still praying.

Hi Miss Lavender Dreams, Hi Wendy;

I love that swing. It looks like the perfect size for my little teddy bear butt. (o: Maybe it's just big enough for me & Wendy to swing on it together.

Heaps of Hugs

I love how you set us up for this one! Very clever. I finally took a shot of a tire swing yesterday that I have been wanting to stop and snap for months now. There is something about a barn and a swing...very nostalgic.

Old barns and covered bridges have always been two of my favorite things to photograph or paint. I haven't seen a covered bridge in years but every now and then I see a barn that be perfect for a painting. This is one of those barns. Have a wonderful week. Hugs

The swing does it for me! It is exactly the kind we had growing up. My Dad tied one up in a big old tree behind our outside shed. Even my own kids got to swing in it.

Hi Diane,
Your observant eye has spied something that adds a touch of mystery with a dollop of childish whimsy...The little swing fascinates me. Something so old has a youthful secret, don't you think?
So glad you made it safely home.
Blessings,
Carolynn xo
