Upcycling…


Just dropping in to post a picture of a barn that I forgot about.  Carrie and I found this barn when we went out to Deerfield, Massachusetts last month but somehow it got buried in my stacks and stacks of photos.  I really like this barn because whoever owns it seems to be upcycling old advertising signs to use as tarps for the roof.  How clever is that?   Sure makes for a colorful display.

Perfect for the 'ads' put out - the airplanes.
Recovery is also contemplated - umbrella.
The building can be sensed in the old culture and the memories ...! - :)
