Old Barn and a Shed

decrepit barn

This old barn near Cedar Creek has seen better days. I'm sharing it with The Barn Collective anyway. They like backroads finds.

Speaking of barns, our shed is barn-shaped so that gave me an excuse to buy a "barn quilt" for it. It's a painted panel that I found at the Farmhouse Market in Woodstock. I've been looking for one but it took a while because they haven't really caught on yet in our part of the Shenandoah Valley. The artist is Virginia Burtner.
