Thankful {things I love} Thursday...

I came home with lots of photos of barns from our days away this past Summer ...
I ♥ LOVE ♥ barns ...
the more aged/worn/weathered/ the better ...
but then ...
we came across this barn
which reminded me of a saying I have ~ when we are out and I touch up my lipstick I will say I'm "putting a little paint on the barn" :-)
and I guess it really does make a difference :-)

Hi Deb,
Love the photos of the barns, they're all beautiful!

Also, thank you for your very kind comment about my cat, Gigi. I am so pleased Ernie received a hug and I know it would've made Gigi happy as well. Thank YOU.
