TwoFer Tuesday - Corvettes

I actually saw more than two Corvettes this past Saturday, but thought I would share an early C1 (I forgot to check the year but I believe it is a 1959 or 1960) and a 2009 C6 in Atomic Orange. Yes, I have an unabashed preference for the C6 since it lives in our garage.

There were over 90 Corvettes at the show in Wenatchee, Washington, a record turnout! The weather was spectacular to boot!

Barn Charm - Big Green

This barn is along US Highway 2 east of Creston, Washington. On my winter trips to the Spokane airport, I would pass by it. It's hard to miss. Finally on a return trip in January I captured this drive-by shot.

Last Friday when I flew home to Washington for the weekend, my plane was high above and just to the south of US2 as we made our way westward towards Seattle. I identified Spokane and the towns of Reardan and Davenport. Then I started looking for other landmarks from my window seat. Lo and behold, I could see this barn from the air! Too bad I wasn't able to share my excitement with anyone around me. They probably wouldn't understand my love of barns and the Barn Charm meme. And too bad I didn't think to get my camera out!!

Friday's Fences - If You Can't Do The Time...

...then don't do the crime. Or you might just find yourself behind this extra tall stone fence (sort of). I'm almost positive there is plenty more fencing on the other side of this!

Don't forgot to join Beth & I here on Saturday evening for the first InSPIREd Sunday.

InSPIREd Sunday - Immaculate Conception

From December, snow on the roof. It probably still has snow since winter doesn't seem to want to end in Minnesota this year. I do like the addition of the stone work amidst the brick.

Go visit Tricia's Barn Charm at Bluff Area Daily.

If I don't get to return the visit this week, I apologize in advance. It has been super busy with work and I'm mentally exhausted at the end of the day.
