A Different Kind of Barn

Barns come in a lot of different shapes and sizes...and are used for lots of different things.



Now for a more traditional barn...note the similarity of shape...but not of purpose!

Solitary looking...
but not really alone!  It really all depends on your point of view!

Hi Linda, wonderful barn finds. The Book Barn is the pretty red barn I am use to seeing. Lovely photos, thanks for sharing.

The Book Barn looks fantastic Linda, so beautifully painted in traditional barn colours, which the other one looks like it needs desperately. It's probably a busy working barn with no time for frippery!

Mari said...

You found a few good ones. I like the way you showed that last one - point of view makes quite a difference!

Tanya said...

oh the book barn, i'd like to go in there!

Dianna said...

Nice to find an old one to compare to Book Barn. Are the old barns in our area?

Beth said...

The book barn would be a huge temptation for me. :)

Love the Book Barn, Linda! What a cute shop.

Of course, the old, "real" barns are lovely, as always. :)

Did you say "Book Barn"?!!! Oh boy, be still my heart. I bet they have some great stuff in there....just keep me out, okay?

LOL

BTW....Bud is Navy ---and he was stationed in Norfolk VA --well, that was his home base, but mainly on ships during his tenure. Can't wait to see all the mermaids.

Nice comparisions, bet the book barn is popular.

your 2nd shot is perfect. :)

Rose said...

I never thought about having a bookstore in a barn...but I used to go read in our barn.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

You're absolutely right about it all... I wouldn't mind having a book barn here, that alone would draw me in! =)
The next shot does look lonely, but then ya turn a lil to the left & there's its friend in the field! Love the whitewash look & that barn door is awesome!

Thanks a ton for joining in & linking up to this week's Barn Charm =)

The Book Barn is beautiful.

Regards and best wishes

Just wondering if the book barn was built to be a book barn, or if it is a recycle barn.

It is GREAT either way!

Beautiful photos Linda! I'm so glad that the solitary looking barn isn't really all alone. Never seen a “Book Barn” before… what a great idea! :-)

Ellie said...

That looks like a great bookstore! Is it? I love the weathered barn look too.

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

Cool Linda! I love the Book Barn! The other barn is nice all alone or with the out-buildings. They are all being used and that is the bestest thing!
