I love barns.
I realize this is a broad statement but I do- I. love. barns.
The classic shape, the roughness of the outside and the mystery of the inside...There is something about a barn that just gets to me.
So you can imagine how I feel about barns that double as homes.
This is one of my all time favorites- A Dungan Nequette
masterpiece right outside of B'ham...
such a great railing design- and it wouldn't look half as cool without that photograph there...
the softness of those drapes against the rustic walls... (sigh)
The swing just makes this house. (Not to mention those cute girls)
Has a Swiss Family Robinson feel to it...

I'm leaving again this weekend- (I know, I can't sit still.) Our annual end-of-the-summer vacation... making our way up the blue ridge mountains to our family house in Linville, North Carolina. As we get closer to Linville we always take the back, scenic way- winding through the curvy mountain roads. And every year I pass this barn with a big sign attached to it:
It makes me happy.
And it also makes me laugh because I imagine a big, southern woman shakin her head-- "mmmm... Yes Lawd... Yes!!"
Can't you hear her?
I have always been guilty of leaving doors open with my mom calling after me: "Were you raised in a barn??!"
Hmmmm...I'd like to think I was raised in this one.
