Barn of Cuteness

Barn of Cuteness
I’ve seen a lot of things cute-i-fied over the last year, everything from shower curtains to camper mattresses, to pianos … but a barn? This is a first. 
 But hey, who says a barn can’t be cute? Not me. And Melanie’s barn certainly fits the bill. Look at all the detail she added, windows, flower boxes, the whole nine yards. No, even better than that, it’s ten yards! Where the heck did that saying come from anyway? It makes no sense whatsoever. Is it a football term? 
 Anyway, back to the point: Cute barn! By Melanie! See more on her blog The Old White Cottage.

    Cute! So my grandma says the “whole nine yards” thing comes from back in the day when they sold material by the bolt and that was how many yards came standard. Maybe they still do it who knows.

    Love it! And “the whole nine yards” comes from machine guns. The belt of ammunition came in 9 yard lengths and so with a tough opponent you wanted to give ’em the whole nine yards. . .

    Oh my goodness … Thank you so much for the feature!

    About the inside … while we did make some modifications to the interior in order to install the windows, it isn’t complete. I’m not sure I’ll get to it this year but when it is done, I’ll be sharing that too!

    Excellent use of the colors! I bet the neighbors are jealous.
