Farmhouse dreaming...

Let me just start off by saying one thing.....

i dream of farmhouse living....

but don't get the wrong idea.....i am in love with my house now...

i love my house...

i love it to pieces....

but a girl can dream....that i know.

I am always perusing homes that are on the market..

i peek in the windows...

i spy from down the street....

i've probably even been labeled as a.....

girl.to.watch.

from some of the neighborhood watch teams...

but i'm ok with that.

really.




So....

i found this place...

this farm.....on 7 acres....

with a dairy barn...

did you know i dream of dairy barns.....

well i do....

i've been know to talk in my sleep...

and say ...

dairy barn

out loud....

yes...it's true



It's a good thing my realtor is a good friend....

she fields my calls....

and puts me in my place by saying..

kasey...i could totally see a

lola b's sale happening in the

dairy barn

now...that's a friend
























I forgot to mention that i also dream of chickens...

wierd i know...

and i'm not talking about chicken sandwiches

from chick fil e.....

uggh

because if anyone knows me...i really do love that place...

and we don't have them here...

but i do dream of chickens...

or hens...

that lay eggs.

could you totally see me having chickens...

in this chicken coop on the back of the farm...

the farm with the dairy barn....

i could even set a sign out front that says...

eggs for sale.









I might not be wearing this killer dress from anthro when i'm selling eggs.....

i might have some jeans with an apron...

i might even have a bit of cookie dough molted on that apron...

from baking cookies from scratch for the children ...

in the farm kitchen.....

while the kids play in the

dairy barn.

Dare I ask how much they are asking...? It is absolutely stunning.
I really do think that it would be a very appropriate belated birthday gift from one's husband.
Just sayin'...

Leah C said...

Oh we dream similar dreams:) I love, love farmhouses and old barns! But, my husband says a firm "No" to the chickens...oh well, a girl can dream;)

Dandy said...

I dream about houses all the time. I dream of owning a driveway where I can park feet away from my front door. Versus parking in a lot somewhere in my apartment complex. I dream about not sharing walls with strangers.

Love that farm house

VINTAGE HOME lifestyle said...

Hey Girl...I can totally see you in that barn.
DREAMS DO COME TRUE...

Laura Trevey said...

What an awesome barn.... You can Dream!!

Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

Oh my heavens... You dream of diary barns and say "Dairy barn" in your sleep??? I think I lost two whole minutes of blog reading because I was laughing there...

I also want chickens... eggs... jeans with an apron is a really hot look by the way. I sport that one all the time. Drives the husband nuts. (wink)

*The Beautiful Life* said...

I love the pics of the stone steps!!

You sound like me, back when I first started looking at this house we're in now...

Kasey, if you are supposed to dwell in that home, I pray that for.

If not, I pray that your heart will know. ;)

XOXO

That place looks downright DREAMY! It's a Tracy Porter kind of dream, that is. Having the lovely home and barn and chicken house, with the fresh Aurancana chickens, with their pale pastel eggs, warm and fresh as can be. To have a studio in the barn and rule the world in between warm oatmeal cookies, baked from scratch in the vintage stove in the farm kitchen. Yep, I know that dream!

Tamara said...

DO IT!! BUY IT TODAY and I wouldn't even tell your husband!

Mary said...

Gorgeous...love the unique windows on that barn! And this I gotta see...Kasey in a pair of killer Anthro boots wading through chicken poop to collect eggs each morning. Love it! ;o) ~mary~

Farmgirl Paints said...

Have to say our dreams are the same...I would so love a farm in the country...oh and a Chick-fila down the street. We don't have them here either...sigh:(

Jessica said...

You MUST have it! ;)

Suzann @ The Olive Cottage said...

Okay, I want it. LOL

You can use the barn for your sales - I promise.

Julie Harward said...

I know how you feel thats how I was raised..on farms, the most wonderful way to grow up! Hey, I'm having a GIVE A WAY..Come say hi :D

It' an Evolution said...

Ok...I just purchased that killer dress today...nice to see how it looks on you...worried I might need a sweater with it now.
Your costing me money as I write...
Where is that farm? It is in such great shape.
We have an old dairy barn on our subdivision property and I would just love to get my hands on rehabing it one day.

Tracy is ... Loving Pretty Things said...

Lola B's in that dairy barn - i'm salivating at the thought....can only imagine how your wheels are spinning! I would even step in chicken poop to get there.

Fabulous.

Oh, and owning that home would mean you'd need a farm boy. And no, sick-o. Not like the one's you've got. More like Princess Bride's farm boy.

You're welcome.

xoxo

Chablis said...

Oh my. I have those kind of dreams too! I hate my dirty dog, but I'd love to have chickens...preferably a good 100 meters from my house. That is one amazing farmhouse. Excuse me while I go have a quiet dream about me living there...

***LIZ*** said...

I have a chick-fil-a down the street from me and I would gladly give it up for that farm house, it is AMAZING!! You should totally buy it, you can write it off as a business expense if you have sales there, right? Good Luck, you look fantastic there too, by the way, you all ready look like you own the place.

vicki archer said...

One very cute dairy farm there Kasey....Very dangerous window shopping, xv

Rachel said...

ohhh....sigh...it is so lovely....can i dream with you?

Jacqueline said...

Oh WOW...that place looks fantastic ....and you could do so much with it.
I'm a little worried though, Kasey. I think that you might, just might, be living in a bit of a dream world !! Chickens, aprons and cookie baking are not your strong point are they ????!!!!! haha..... but there are lots of cookery courses and I'm sure there's one on hen keeping, so all is not lost !! XXXX

Martha said...

LOVE that farmhouse...and white...I love white farmhouses...I am in love with a white cottage style house in my neighborhood here...that dress is rockin' by the way:)...love it! I can see your dreams coming true...so very well because I too can picture one of your lovely Lola B sales there...I would definitely be there! But you are right too ~ your home is gorgeous you have...maybe if you move...I'll take your house:)...just kidding:)

Beth Perry said...

you would make farm living so chic and uber cool.

AshleyR said...

fatty fatty chicken patty... ;)
Totally kidding.... you look like a doll in your new anthro dress against your new dairy barn. At least you will have a place to put me when I come visit.

Room Service ~ Decorating 101 said...

Good Luck! But as a girl that has lived on a small farm her whole life it is not all glam...chickens are dirty little things...horses, are lots and I mean lots of work! Cows need help with thier births, yes, I have had my whole hand in a cows ass...and barns need to be cleaned and one can't wear cute boots either.

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

I can totally see you in that wonderful farmhouse, with Lola B sales in the dairy barn. Fabulous!

Tracey said...

Did you buy it?????? You look right at home there...in your awesome anthro dress...in front of the dairy barn!!!

:) T

Elise said...

LOVE it!! I would so buy that place!!

maura/foggogs said...

I have always had the dream of converting barn into a home - with post and beam! I love the open concept of a huge barn- lots of room for kids to run around! We have some great places like that back here is new england - I am trying to get Lola B's closer! If you decide to bake today I can send you my recipe for choc. chip cookies. It is easy and they taste great.

Jboo said...

You look perfect there! Always good to be thinking ahead! Have a great day.

Janet

Joyce said...

This is a beautiful farm with a lot of storage. Very nice! xo

paperhill said...

there is nothing like a beautiful old farmhouse and barn! whenever we take a ride to the "country" i drool over the old barns so i can relate. we have an old farmhouse but sadly no big ole' barn to go with it!

paige said...

i love how you are able to seamlessly juxtapose funky anthro ware and dairy barn living~
that's my girl!!

Tiffany said...

Oh, how I love to dream. I think a dairy barn sounds fabulous! Now you've got me thinking...

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Kasey,do me a favor please. Would you look to see if you can find me in your friend list or on your dashboard. I messed with my feedburner and have lost my peeps. Yikes! I have no idea how o fix it. I have had a few people to say that I am not showing up on their list. Any ideas? Thanks~ Susie

Anne Marie said...

do it

I'll even give you some chicks Kasey.......

littlebyrd said...

It is totally fab. That barn is perfect for your sales!! Our neighbor has 3 and they get out often and come to our yard for a visit. Oliver and I just love them so much :) Get it!

Morning T said...

Wow Kasey- that would be too cool! Gorgeous pics and your 'killer' dress from anthro is great. Where did you find your textured leggings? Love those too. :-)

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

is this the farmhouse you offered to have me move into? it's really lovely...although not as lovely as the girl in the killer anthro dress giving us the tour!

have a great day!!

gigiandoliver said...

Throw in some goats and sheep...and I'm right there with you!

Cowgirl in the City said...

I'm right there with you! I love looking at houses, and would love to live on an old farm!

Again.

Sigh. Stupid city. :)

Kacey said...

I can totally picture you living on a dairy farm! Maybe you could make it your country house? ;-)

Kristin said...

Love the barn! We have a barn on our property, it's small, I dream of having a huge barn with a studio loft all nice and warm from the breath of the cows below...BTW Anthro boots will hold up to chickens...chicken test here...not happy about it though and those darn birds knew it; have you ever been stalked by chickens?!?!...To have them take flight behind you...coming at you....follow you up the steps into your home and stare at you with their beady little eyes through the window...shudder...maybe I'll feel better when they start to lay eggs...but right now I'm having nightmares! ;0)
Would definitely be there to your dairy barn sale...to heck with the husband and his cows...maybe I could just bring them with me...it looks like it could house a few cows! ;0)

Laura said...

sounds lovely.
I'd give it two days, though, before you left running. And from scratch? Really, Kasey? It's us you are talking to. Scratch does not involve mac OR cheese or a microwave.
Call me crazy...but anything with DAIRY BARN in it sounds like it is miles and miles to the nearest Anthro.

Of course, I too, dream of moving to Kansas, and my husband just laughs and laughs at me...

I think it is nice to dream of a simple life..nature..chicken...farms...

but the key word there is DREAM.

oh screw it, count me in...let's move to the farm house together...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have the prefect apron!

The Flying Bee said...

Love it....

it's so you.

xo,
Adrienne

Cathi said...

that is just fabulous....christmas is right around the corner...you never know...! :)

P.S. awesome dress - you wear it well!

Kathryn said...

Time to trade out the Anthro boots for some Wellies!!! They clean up fabulously, and come in pretty colors like my pink ones ;) Ducks, I dream of a white duck named Sarah for my garden-to eat icky bugs. Unfortunately DH said "Absolutely NOT, Kathryn" I still tortured him with websites on raising ducks left up on the laptop. heheheh Sorry Honey! Love the whole dream!! Go for it!

Brenna LaPray said...

What an amazing place. You could even have the children sleep in the dairy barn.

Rue said...

I guess you and Tara are having a similar vision ;)

Gorgeous place!!

xoxo,
rue

a little bit vintage said...

Mmmm....SO lovely...I want it to! As always, lovely photos! :)

Smiles,

Alyssa said...

DO IT. LOVe love love!!!

Anita said...

I grew up on a farm with sinilar barns- but it was a red brcik house...and I would soooo jump at it in a minute. Does the school bus stop in front for the kiddos?

debra said...

I love that house. Keep on dreaming put pictures on your vision board. You Just Never Know!

sarah @ realestatestyle said...

Just found your blog from the flying bee. so funny! It would be fun to have a farm. I have horses, but board them, so no farm....You are so lucky to have a Realtor friend {I'm one too} Just kidding! :) Love the blog.

Mindi said...

I am also farmhouse dreaming... my husband shares the dream, however, he has a very realistic grasp on our finances!! So, I too am only dreaming of my own farmhouse.
And chickens?!?!? Don't get me started! I want them too! The creep Mark out! My cousin has chickens and brings me farm fresh eggs and there is definitely a difference!!!
We have recently discovered our dream town which has plenty of the farms, but also the cutest little town too... so we are also "in town" dreaming but only in one town.
About the Chick-fil-a, I find I only want it on Sundays!

The Little Red Shop said...

Oooh! Sweet! Did you know that I have always (okay..maybe not always..but probably since the eighties and some episode of Remington Steele or some gosh awful mini-series where I saw the hero or heroine swerve into the livery yard in their ivory Excalibur and the chickens went flying...clucking for dear life)...I have always wanted to have a place like that...where the chickens go flying when you drive through the gate.

Wouldn't that be nice? That property looks just lovely, Kasey! Ya'll would fit right in!

: )

Brandie said...

Oh my gosh Kasey, are we sharing the same brain?! My husband thinks that I am totally crazy but then, he's known that for a while now. I am always pointing out the gorgeous farmhouses in our town. I dream of a big beautiful farmhouse with crazy big windows that I can watch the kids playing in the yard from. Lots of land with an old, weathered fence around it that the kids like to sit on. Big tree climbing trees for the boys and land to ride horses on. Now, I din't say, I would be mucking stalls or anything but going for horseback rides on our property would be pretty fantastic. Oh my, I could go on and on. Perhaps I should do so on my own blog instead of in the comments section on your's;)

Lissa said...

a sale in a dairy barn. that sounds great! and so does the jeans with the cute apron while your getting your eggs. a girl certainly can dream.

shannon said...

Please buy the farm- I'll be the first one to buy your eggs!!

Kathleen Grace said...

Even though I do have a little chicken coop with chickens and a tiny cottage on acreage, i still dream of a big white farmhouse and yes, yes, yes, a barn! For my studio. This place is gorgeous!

~Amy~ said...

I dream of a farm. Even though my husband {who grew up on a sort-of farm in Id} says there is too much dirt for me;) I still dream. Last April we got 6 chickens.... one for each of us. They have been laying beautiful brown and greenish blue eggs since August. It has been a great experience for both us and the kids.
btw... lovin all the white as always:)

Apt. #34 said...

What an incredible house. So happy to have discovered your blog and shop. Brilliant!

Erin L. said...

Oh my goodness Kasey! I just saw this and I am *dying* to know where this is.. I may have to outbid you.. Is it in Illinois or another state?

prashant said...

I sport that one all the time.
