The Old Red Barn

Vintage Farm Girl-700

Pulling the wagon copy_edited-2

Picking Dandelions copy-1_edited-1

You would think Sarah was on a farm by looking at the scenery in these pictures……but she isn’t. This is one of the vacant lots across the street from our house…….I thought the old red barn made the perfect backdrop for Sarah’s litte Matilda Jane ensemble.

Yesterday, I worked from home, so around lunchtime, Sarah and I headed out for a little walk around the neighborhood. I decided to pull Sarah in the wagon and we ended up right in the middle of the field surrounded by dandelions!! She picked until her little heart was content and then we headed back home with yellow stained hands and shoes……thank goodness none of it got on her clothes:) I think her light pink crocs are ruined….I cannot get the yellow out!

When I saw these pictures download I wasn’t even sure if I liked them…..but as I started to play around and give them a more vintage feel…..I fell in love with them. I was very thrilled with the end result and would like to have these printed and framed to hang in our house. I am so bad about doing that…..I have so many pictures that I love, but they are all living in my computer and not on my walls:(

When I am not at work, you will find me with my camera and my kids, which is great, but lately I have not had much time to cook and I am getting the urge to get a little creative in the kitchen again…….I am thinking the next post might be food oriented:) Not sure what I will be making…..but I am in the mood for something new and different.

Sorry if I am boring you all with this photography stuff……but it has been consuming me. Right now I am playing the “name game” Trying to come up with something cute and/or catchy as a business name. I could only come up with one and it was using our last name, which I don’t really want to do. If any of you have ideas……I would love to hear them. Just leave me a comment!!

Have a great day!! I am headed off to work….my real job….the one that pays the bills:)

share to:
  • Jo - What fun ~ they setting with the barn is perfect!


  • Jodee Leader - These pictures are soooo cute! They are picture perfect — the barn, the wagon and her MJ outfit! I think you definitely should frame them!

    Hope you have a great day!ReplyCancel

  • Shelly and Family - Hey Girl – LOVE the photos…AMAZING! As for a name…I just opened an art/custom jewelry studio (again – long story on that one) and named it Mei Faith Studio (I took Francesca’s & Annabelle’s middle names and put them together). I will have to tell you more on the studio later…Like you it has taken over all my spare time lol! (just the shop’s designs, banners, custom boxes and all that stuff is very consuming…)

    Hoping we can catch up soon…ReplyCancel

    P.S. Use the Mr. Clean “Magic Eraser” sponge to remove the stains from her Crocs ~ it’s like magic :)ReplyCancel

    Anyway, love the feeling of these pics with the red barn. There’s such a gauzey (is that a word?) old world feel to them. Just beautiful.

    Enjoy your culinary adventure.ReplyCancel

  • Jboo - Great photos — they are lovely and it does look like you live out on a farm somewhere!

    Wish I could help with a name, but I’m not very creative!

  • paige - i was hoping you had posted these!
    that’s just all i can say
    i left you comments on flickr, but i really am honest–these are ridiculoulsy fabulous
    my faves for sure
    please tell me you will print these on some huge canvas

  • Christy - How could you possibly not love all these pictures. They are absolutly beautiful and so vintage!!! I would totally frame them as well but I am just like you– I never get around to framing anything. I have so many pictures in my computer and have never printed them– I just post them online.

    Do you like photoshop and did you have to buy it or is there a free one online. I would love to start working with it!

    Christy :)ReplyCancel

  • CC - No, no, no. YOU didn’t take those, did you??? They are AMAZING!!!!!!! I love the painting feel. I would so be framing those if it was me. On that note, want to take my kids pics in that location so I can frame them?????? I’ll just pop on over in my jet plane….ReplyCancel
