The Little Barn Next Door

This little barn has been standing in our next door neighbor’s yard for all of my life. As you can see it is falling forward and the windows are broken. What you cannot see is the huge gaping hole through the roof on the back side. It was scheduled for demolition this past summer. While drooling through Pinterest photos of a similar nature, I remembered that we have this beauty just outside my door, so I dragged my props over and snapped these.  (I did get permission) I am so glad our local fire department was a bit slow with the demolition. I am going back in an hour or so to see how the sun changes.DSC_0060

They have arrived! A breath of fresh Maine Woods is in the house and barn and dooryard. Really, you cannot imagine the wonderful memories and emotions conjured with just one brief whiff of these beauties. All the worry and stress of shipping costs and moss gathering and bow making and pinecone wiring and box size issues…comes to a halt as soon as the first load comes through the door. http://www.winterwreaths.com

Our 22″+ wreath, pinecones, moss red berries and bow.

We did this thing last year, we bought a mail order wreath business. It keeps us very well occupied for a few months. We are learning new things and meeting new and old friends. I grew up in what used to be called “The Christmas Tree Capital of the World” so it feels like I have finally joined the ranks of the hard working woods folk of DownEast Maine. It is great to visit with childhood friends. A lot of red and black plaid gets worn around here
