Terri Buster said...

Oh my goodness- that one is on it's way down, down, down!

Linda said...

Yikes! That one is soon headed for the "barn graveyard" I fear!

S. J. Qualls said...

Yep, "charming " is gone. Too bad...

Michelle said...

Indeed. Looks like a lot of the barns around here which is sad since a little tlc and paint can go along way.

Elna said...

That look very old and are falling apart. Have a nice start of the week.

Hugs

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Definitely has seen better days:@)

Sandra said...

Too bad... definitely past its glory days...

Jill said...

I do like that aged wood though. Nice for frames, etc.

eileeninmd said...

Sad to see, it did have better days. Have a great day!

edenhills said...

That's definitely lost most of it's charm. Look like it won't be around after the next stiff wind.

Deb said...

but it has lots of charachter...and the stories those walls could tell..

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Charming in an unusual way. It would be fun to peek in, but I'm not so sure I'd enter.

Sandra said...

it reminds me of myself, aging and falling apart slowly.... love the trees around it.

Madge Bloom said...

Looks like it was made using plywood and it doesn't weather well, does it?

Cloudy said...

Vielleicht hilft ein bisschen Farbe...:-)

It's a shame to see how things are abandoned.
a kiss.

Maple Lane said...

A sad looking barn.

Hookin It With Mr. Lick Lick said...

Looks like it won't take much of a wind to blow that one down.

Monika B. said...

Super photos.

Montanagirl said...

Nice old barn. I fear it will collapse soon!

Dianne said...

oh! I feel like that some days
now it's charmless
yet interesting

DJan said...

There's still some charm there...

Anni said...

LOL....'fresh out of charm'? If only the walls could speak.

nene said...

Interesting how the structure or design of this barn resembles
Noah's Arch that has been portrayed in a couple of movies I've seen.

bailey-road.com said...

You're not kidding!

Judy @ daily yarns said...

Well, it has seen better days.

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

Gotta be some charm there!

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

A bit Sci-Fi on the side entrance ! Could be a Transformer on the hiding !

R.Ramakrishnan said...

Ramshackle barn which could do with immediate repairs!

Donna said...

And that depicts exactly how I feel this morning, LOL!

parker said...

Have to agree. Time for a replacement!

MTWaggin said...

Hope someone thinks to salvage some of it at least!

Margie said...

Perfect title, LOL!

Catherine said...

I don't think even a fresh coat of paint could help!
xo Catherine

Jana said...

This looks familiar but I love all the character

Muffy's Marks said...

We share so many common blog buddies, I thought I'd stop over and see what you're all about, and I like what I see.

Daryl said...

but those are charming .. rotting wood, crumbing foundations .. they're charming to my eye! so thanks,T

Jacquelineand.... said...

So sad to see an unloved barn left alone to quietly rot away. At least, thanks to you, it won't be in obscurity.

Primitive Stars said...

Hello, oh my, how sad. Bet it was beautiful at one time. Blessings Francine.

Molly The Wally said...

Oh dear on its last legs. Mind you looks like an evil face with those gaps as eyes. Have a lovely Monday.
Best wishes Molly

EG CameraGirl said...

Oh dear! Not looking good at this farm!

That reminds me, I need to post a barn today too!

Liz said...

Oh dear... It looks like it's ready to fall down at any moment!

Fábio Martins said...

I like too :)

FOREST SNAPPER said...

That has to be the best photo of a barn you have posted. One day its a grand house with chairs outside,now this....they have had their money's worth out of this building for sure.

Tiago Braga said...

an old and interesting place, this will be a perfect place for photos with a model, you should try it :P

Bob Bushell said...

Woops, I think that is "fresh out of charm" as you said.

Patty Woodland said...

It does look like it has seen better days

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Definitely lost it's charm. I hope someone will salvage the wood.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, That barn structure looks fine but the porch addition and fence and the hay loft door, well, look like they are in need of work. Nice shots as always. Have a wonderful day!

Sylvia K said...

No charm, but makes me curious as to its history. Great shots for the day!!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Love the title! It's definitely seen better days. (Kinda like myself...ha!)

Joop Zand said...

Great shots of this old barns Teresa

barbara l. hale said...

Poor old thing...fresh out of charm. I feel like that some mornings. May have no charm but it is picturesque.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Well not everyone can be charming their whole life...

Abhinav R said...

Very old barn.. Needs some repairing..

ladyfi said...

Quite the opposite - there is a lot of beauty in those faded plansk.

Pat Tillett said...

Yep! This one has seen better days! But then again, so have I...

Chatty Crone said...

Well it is a barn - and I think the charm of it could be - all the past history it holds.

Furry Bottoms said...

It does look ready to droop.

Randy said...

Talk about an extreme makeover.

an old barn, but still distinctive!

Bev said...

ohhh I love it... I think its charming:)))

Red said...

This is a more modern cheap structure that has fallen into so much disrepair that it can be interesting. It reminds me of my Dad who was always in a hurry and had very little money so he put up a less quality structure.

Mama Zen said...

Nice shots!

EM Illustrator said...

I love this one - nice and old :)

Fiona said...

Well it is weather beaten
but the trees behind it
look lovely an "green".

Have a good week Texgirl.

Łucja-Maria said...

Old, but very beautiful.
Fantastic photographs.

Hilda R.B said...

Wow! This was old.
Nice photo.
Wish you a great week.
From Hilda

Annette said...

Perfect post title.

Ms. A said...

But it had a life once, even if you were only able to capture the end of it!

Sally said...

I would love to know the "story". :)
xoxo

Rohrerbot said...

The barn is a bit scary. I feel like some unsavory people might be settled in this mess.

Ann said...

I don't want to be inside that barn.

Sandy said...

Not one darn thing charming about that barn. Well, I guess the old barn wood could be used in various projects.

Lindsjö taxar said...

Oh what sad to see but great picrture anyway...

Ellie said...

Oh dear it is a wee bit of a ramshackle isn't it?

Rose said...

It looks like it is getting ready to fall in on itself...

Lynne said...

Looks like DONE . . . Yet, there might be some mystery . . .

Lois Evensen said...

All it will take will be a strong wind....

Farm Girl said...

Well about all I can say about it is Wow!!! Look at all of that lovely barn wood to use in projects!!

Brian King said...

That looks like a good sized barn! Probably impressive in its prime. I'd be curious to know what it was used for. It's a bit different from the low slung barns in your area.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,

Hah, those barns we have in our earea too and we always joked about them when passing by... On a Saturday off we must work a bit to revive them. Till we pass by again and they've collapsed. Too late for revival. One wonders though.
Hugs,
Mariette

Julie G. said...

That's quite an oldie. It looks like it might have been a very nice barn at one time.

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

Oh wow - now that is one interesting barn!

Kathy said...

Poor thing. It looks like a bunch of building blocks that are getting ready to tumble down.

Deanna said...

Looks like this one is almost a goner..!!

Elizabeth Edwards said...

wow, it has had a rough life. goodness gracious. (:

Inger said...

Fresh out of charm
Ready to come down

Oh, well, a poet I ain't.

Elaine said...

Yeah, gotta agree, not much charm left in this oldie, just a whole lot of sad.

Tricia said...

I love this feature showing old barns. Very unique and so cool!

Kerri said...

All it might take is one big gust of wind .......
Great capture!

Kim, USA said...

Wait a minute this barn looks like a transformer ^_^ Did you notice that? ^_^


Kim,USA

Saun said...

You're right the charm is gone.But I'm sure theres some stories to go with it.

njschout said...

Rather decrepit!

Annmarie Pipa said...

wow! I do not want to look like that barn!
a fun photo for sure!

sharon said...

I love the picture of the barn. Old barns like that tell such a story. If walls could talk the stories this barn would tell us.

Cloudia said...

Soulful shot; nice title!
Say, I've noticed when I see you around the blog-o-sphere that you often have the same 'take' on a post as I do. . . .great minds OBVIOUSLY! LOL


Wishing You a happy week,

Nancy Claeys said...

I think it's got a little left. :)

Linda said...

Falling apart but still charming!

Marie said...

Yep...he's lookin' rough!

Gillian Olson said...

Oh, poor baby, looks very down.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Oh my gosh, that is one pitiful barn! Yikes.

Mari said...

Looks like this one has seen better days! I wonder what it looked like in it's prime.

Carletta said...

It does seem to be hunching its arms together saying I'm giving up.
I feel like I'm falling apart some days - not ready to give up though. :)

Janey and Co. said...

I think it was a big part of yesterday...not so sure about it's future :(

stardust said...

Is this the result of neglect? If only used or taken care, it will show us “bloom of time” as a barn like other old things even if it looks shabby.

Daniel LaFrance said...

That is one unhappy looking barn.

I wonder how old this structure is?

MM Enterprises said...

Old house very bad condition.

Stewart M said...

Not a lot of charm left there, and not too much function either by the look of it!

The skyline of Dubai was remarkable - I hope to be able to go back when it's a bit cooler and see some of the older parts of town. Too hot to explore really!

Cheers - Stewart M - Australia

Jan n Jer said...

Falling down...sad!

SweetMarie said...

Once upon a time I bet that was a gorgeous barn! It's sad to see it in this condition. I wouldn't be walking around inside!

Rita said...

Sorry, you are so mistaken. There is plenty of charm left in this old relic. Just needs the right person to bring it back to life.

I t is sad to see places like this go to seed.

Robin said...

T, definitely a tumble down! Looks like a good wind would level it!

Dianna said...

Oh my goodness. That just looks sad, doesn' it?

Paula said...

Awwwww..... so sad.

Amy Burzese said...

Oh no . . .

Linda said...

A perfect title for this post, Tex!

pattisjarrett said...

I didn't think they ever lost their charm, but I see what you mean.

Tricia Hays said...

no no, there's still charm as long as it's still standing, there's still charm! =)

Rita said...

LOL! Old charm. I guess that's very old charm. ;)
