Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Out and About

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Just east of Gardner, Kansas. Taken March, 2012.

Once upon a time, I believe this barn was red because you can just see the hint of the remaining red paint hanging on for dear life.  I actually think I like it better this way. 
What do you think?

I'm linked up to this week's Barn Charm hop.  If you're as enchanted by old barns as I am, it's the place to be.  And if you're visiting from the hop, welcome!  Hope you'll sit down, have an ice cold drink and stay a spell.


  1. i prefer barns in this natural state over the bright red ones. i love old weathered wood, even on houses. thanks for stopping by my post and for the info on the caterpillars.

  2. I love the old weathered barns almost as much as red barns! Like the fence in front of this one, too. Great shot!

  3. Welcome to Barn Charm!

    I like red barns, but dark barn wood is probably my favorite, love em, & this is certainly a beautiful ol barn!

    Thank you very much for joining in & linking up to this week's Barn Charm =)

  4. i bet it would be real purdy if it was all red again. great view. (:

  5. Hi, y'all! So glad you stopped by from the barn hop. I've been having fun looking at everyone else's pics - they are gorgeous!
