Cowboy found me another vintage structure last week. We had never noticed it tucked away from view of the road. Love the wood “planks” and this leaves me wishing I had something like this on our place! I can think of a hundred things I could use it for. Would love to know how old the wooden part […]
This beautiful photo is from a friend of Cowboys. His family owns a pig farm in France and this photo speaks a thousand words on the bountiful loveliness of their country setting. I could plow in these French fields forever and a day on this beautiful farm. I have never had the opportunity to visit France, but am positive it […]
This is not a large beautiful barn by Montana standards, but this “spoke” to me. It’s simplicity is what makes it a terrific structure and I loved this barn the minute I spotted it. This one was not far out of Eureka. This barn was sitting in a field in the middle of nowhere with the beautiful mountains […]
I found this barn on a day trip in Montana. It was in an Amish area, but not sure Amish lived here. This barn was one of my favorites. It definitely has that old weathered look which is so appealing to someone who finds value in old things. This beautiful barn roof is beginning to […]
This is one of my favorite Montana barns. My friends daughter took it with her iPhone using an iPhone app. Thanks to D. for sharing. Beautiful colors. Beautiful barn. What’s not to love?
Found this majestic vintage barn in Montana last summer. It has size, perfect mix of color and was sporting a new shiny roof which means it will endure the elements for years to come. What a lucky barn to be one of the “chosen” ones. How wonderful the owners were able to put a roof […]
Found this small wooden barn last summer. It was very small and was in disrepair. It will not be around much longer so I stopped to take a photograph. Even though it’s days are numbered you could still tell it had been a nice little barn at one time in the past. If only it had […]
It is strange for the average city person to comprehend, but most farms/ranches have some sort of beat up work truck they use to get around in. Something that runs good, but you don’t have to worry about bumpy roads, mud, scratching the truck when going in and out of trees and bushes, hail and rain, […]
Here are a few iPhone photos from stock show earlier this year. Always easy to spot something fun at the stock show. This is antique mural on wall. So wonderful. Isn’t the cowgirl darling? Loved this tee shirt logo. I should have gotten it. Bet our livestock would have taken notice! How cute is this […]
Found these great photos of one of cowboy’s uncles. This photo was taken in 1952 – James and his beloved horse Salty. He and his horse left the southwest to ride all the way to San Diego and back. He loved his horse Salty. He loved riding. Anybody who would ride their horse that far has got […]
Cowboy and I had lots of chores this week, but we also made time for fun too. Our weather is crazy. We have had virtually no rain this fall so I actually had to drag out our stored hoses and fire up the water sprinklers. Everything is a tinderbox so I am making sure the house […]
My theory is most things are beautiful in the snow. These rusty old pieces of farm equipment surely prove my theory! Thanks to Montana M. for sharing.
This is not unusual sight in small town America. Took this photo last summer in our small town square. Notice that the truck is parked in front of the town fire hydrant! It also is not parked by the curb, but just kind of out in the street. Coke, Diet Coke, Dr. Pepper, Diet Dr. Pepper, […]
There is nothing prettier than a nice old farmhouse porch with pretty wooden rocking chairs just begging to be used. Found this nice porch a few weeks ago and it made me sad winter is on it’s way, but happy for what next summer will bring. I do not have a big front porch with room to […]
