I had been searching for barn pictures for a while and mom and I finally stumbled upon some. I was in love instantly. Ever since we had moved to Cincinnati I was in love with farms. Maybe just the Iowa girl in me was missing home, or I was inspired by Joanie's farm in back of us. Not sure, but I had developed a new passion for cows and red barns. These are still hanging in the store-I have a couple months to pay them off. The artist who painted them hardly wanted to let them go, she practically was in tears. I assured her that I would take very good care of them. And when my husband takes me across the country for yet another job(inevitable), I can take a little more Iowa with me.
