Mosaic Monday: Bunny's Barn













We are in the middle of a tremendous thunderstorm as I'm preparing this post.  It's a blessing -- we really need the rain -- but to tell you the truth, I'm afraid to be on the computer right now.  So forgive me, but in order to get this post up at the proper time, I'm going to be brief.

Yes, this is yet another Bunny Williams post.  She has this wonderful barn that has been converted to an entertaining space, and it was open to the public along with her garden during the Garden Conservancy's Open Days program back in June.  I love all the antiques here, so I tried to take a lot of closeups of of her tables.  There are also some closeups of the two bathrooms in the barn, and the guest bedroom, which is upstairs.

Ooops, there's another crack of lightning, so I'm out of here.  Enjoy!

Here are the instructions to join today's post:
1. Publish your Mosaic Monday post. The post may be about any subject you wish. The only stipulation is that it include a collage, or mosaic of photos.
2. Once it is published, click on the title of the post. This will lead you to the static link for your post. The static link is the page with only that post on it. Copy the url from your browser at the top of the page.
3. Paste the url into the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
4. Type your name in the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
5. Click on "Enter."

That's all there is to it! It's always a good idea to then check and see if your link is working. If you have any questions, feel free to email me: mrcarroll(at)optonline.net

And a quick reminder: if you would like to join Mosaic Monday but don't know quite where to start, there is a tutorial on mosaic-making on my sidebar. Just scroll down, and click on the small blue mosaic.

  1. First of all, thank you for putting this link-up together for all of us to play with every week!
    Second - well, Bunny's house is just too lovely for words. I love the needlepoint touches and wonder if the large bench in front of the fireplace is needlepoint. It's all gorgeous.

  2. It's hard to imagine that as a 'barn'! What a fabulous place and I'm sure it's even more beautiful in person! Enjoy the week ahead!

  6. So much inspiration there, but I would not call it a barn. :-D Know what you mean about the storms - when they roll thru I unplug and find something else to do.
    Thanks for hosting again this week - I am in.

  8. I've been off and on the computer for the same reason.

    Lots of color, texture, pattern and large scales in this wonderful space. Of all the neat things to see, I especially like the pillow with three dogs. It made me stop and look twice.

    (Having trouble linking up. The link is sitting on the "having trouble" page so I'll not try to link up again.)

  16. After scrolling through the beautiful pix I had to go back to see the title again (I thought, this cannot be a BARN)....but after reading more carefully and remembering your other posts about Bunny's beautiful grounds and home, it made sense!

    Thanks for putting up this meme in the middle of the storm. I hope it brings you needed rain and no damage!

  18. amazing that this is a barn! I love the open spaces of the room - a bit like my house, although I don't have all the glorious furnishings and decorating she has. So lovely - thank you for taking me there and for hosting Mosaic Monday. We have just had a rain storm here too and I dashed out to bring in the washing. Must get onto my other work now!

  20. I've always thought that converting a barn to a living space is such a romantic idea. What a wonderful space Bunny has created.

    I hope the rain has refreshed your area.

  22. This is a great photo meme. I love doing mosaic collections- and i did try to add my link- but for some reason it didn't appear (even though when i tried again it said i was there already). Anyway, congrats on a great challenge. You might like to visit mine too - Mandarin Orange Monday:)

  30. Wow this is incredible! I love all of the antiques and the light coming into those windows! My Great Aunt Bunna and Uncle Donald turned the old homestead barn into their home and they lived there in a beautiful way for over 70 years. The old barn sold for over $160,000.00 last year. Have a sweet week~

  31. I would be scared too if lightning strikes. I'd be turning the computer off for sure. Anyway, my late entry. Such a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful place. Oh thank you for sharing photos. :)

  33. Hi Mary, I hope you are OK. I have tried to e-mail you and it will not move me to your e-mail address any longer. Will we be having Mosaic Monday this week? I had checked several times since last evening and I cannot bring up a new post. Since I can not get to your e-mail either, I thought it may be something wrong with things from my end. Thanking you so much for sharing life with us on this lovely meme. I really appreciate it so very much~

  34. Hello Mary

    Oh I love that barn entertaining space too. A beautiful eclectic mix.
    It looks so warm and inviting - lovely as here in the southern hemisphere it's wintry cold!!!
    I could happily curl up with a book by the fireplace!
    I'm sure you could have too with the lightening outside!

    I'm your newest follower and will link to your next Mosaic Monday post.
