Barn Art

Back in time, pre-cattle, pre-large horses, we/I had miniature horses.
We gave free barn tours meeting our horses and seeing our operartion.  The "art" I did not keep in the house I put on the barn walls. People seemed to enjoy this along with my antique or "the things we used to use" section.   Through a tornado, ten years of weather extremes, cattle occupation and other changing events these remain.

This is a four foot plus wide wooden piece I did years ago representing Hubby and me.  The number in the center is our marriage year and the outside circles are our birth years, separately and becoming. I think they should be almost one circle by now.

You know I never waste a thing!

I would not change these years and although I miss the time I think I wouldn't wish it back. It is just another chapter that been read and finished in our book of life.  We begin the next chapter.
