tractor parade and a vermont barn

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
We enjoyed a fantastic dinner with my family (sans Chicago-daughter who won't make it home until Christmas),
then headed to Vermont for the weekend.
Normally I'd be moaning right now about all the shopping and holiday preparations that need to be done -
but then - there's nothing quite like a little snow squall and a good old fashioned tractor parade to get me humming holiday tunes.
Yep, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Saturday afternoon while out running errands,
the sky was threatening snow.

This place caught my eye.
I love the weathered wood, the old wheels and metal roof.
I can't tell whether this barn is in use or not.

Today, it was back to the office - and a busy month ahead.

An iphone shot of the tractor parade
 - you get the idea  :-)
Have a great week!


  1. I am glad to hear that you had a fantastic dinner with your family on Thanksgiving day!

    Oh, yes, this barn you can't miss. it's old, charming and has a very beautiful texture. And there are interesting wheels and an old tire.

    I have never seen the tractor parade. I wish I would.

    You took excellent pictures!!!

  6. Love those side barn doors and how the wood has weathered under the eaves!
    A smiled at the idea of a tractor parade. I think it is the coolest idea!
    Glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I was at the grocery store today and they were playing Christmas music so I guess it's on to the next holiday!
