The Round Barn

Not far from here,
is the most
wonderful
round barn.




It's no longer home
to any farm
animals,
yet it calls
you inward,
none the less.


A very welcoming
entry way,
decorated for the season.


Inside,
waiting...
the most beautiful wares.

You see?
I am not alone in dreaming
of that white Christmas.

Many windows like this,
each with a different song.

A tree made all from
tissue paper
and decorated with
paper ornaments.


While I left with nothing,
(too expensive for me)
it was a true
delight to the
senses.

I used to love the Round Barn! Although I think I was only able to afford one thing...sort of surprised they are still in business...but it is great that it is still around!

The round barn brings back memories to me of a round barn not far from where I was born in Wisconsin. I wonder if it still exists?
Thank you for the visit and for memories . . .

Thanks for sharing. I am hoping you get your wish of that White Christmas.

Window shopping, store looking is the best way to go for inspiration of the season. I like the old bike in front of the barn, and the berries in the display…

I have missed so much with blogging. Your new page was a nother surprise for me. I have missed you too. That was sweet for you to say on my blog, thank you.

Jill that is an awesome barn there is something about a round barn that makes my heart skip a beat. It is probably because I have never really seen one and they are so cool.
Merry Christmas to you and your family. Have a wonderful time with the ones you love. B

When Marshall was little, when we went in a shop (similar to what this looks like), he would say: "we're gonna be in here a LONG time. I can tell by the way it smells!"
