Barn Charm #57

Lakewood, New Jersey
I know it's not a real Barn...
but today, I really wanted to participate in Barn Charm, it's been a while.
And it's the story I want to share!
Aren't they beautiful??
Now, let's rewind back to June of 2012.
The hubs and I purchased a house, in a small retirement community.
I adore the house, inside and out, it is perfect for us.
We picked out our lot, put down our deposit and
our excitement ensued.
Then the usual obstacles presented themselves.
We were less excited but persistent, we really want the house.
It's been seven months or so and we are only a little closer
to making our dream come true!
He lives across the street, I would see him everyday,
this beauty lives there also.
I know this is where I belong.
I know this is where I am suppose to be!
And, um, do you see that he's wearing Purple!!
So happy to be sharing today with Tricia at Barn Charm
Please stop by Bluff Area Daily to see all the amazing,
charming barns from all around the world.


  1. oh, i do hope you'll get to be 'neigh'bors!!! :) of course, you could never get too close 'cuz he'd step on your flip-flop-wearing feet!


    glad to see you post today.

  2. That purple halter the horse is wearing is a good sign! I hope everything gets settled for you and Chuck soon with your new house. We can't wait to see it!

  3. Close enough. The horses are magnificent!

  4. Hi Debbie, I'm sorry to hear you've had a few delays in regard to your new home. Hopefully, they'll be sorted out and before you know it you it you'll be in there.
    I'm with you, that purple halter is most definitely an omen - nothing surer.
    Such beautiful horses, what gorgeous neighbours. Can see it in their faces, they can't wait for you both to move in.
    Sending heaps of jolly good luck your way xx

  5. Great looking horses! I sure hope you get the house and can live close to them!

  6. I really can see, and feel that this is where you belong. I hope your dream comes true. My fingers are crossed for you!

  7. Debbie, I love your barn series and the horses. They would be cool neighbors, especially since they wear purple. I hope all goes thru with your dream house. Have a happy week!

  8. Be Persistent. Dream homes are worth the hassles. (I am proof).

  9. Oh Debbie I want your dream to come true it will be perfect. Keep pushing Hugs B

  10. If that isn't meant to be then I don't know what is! They would love to have you living by them!

  11. Debbie, I can understand your frustration as we also hope to relocate, but first need to sell our VA home so we can move to NH. Are you also hoping to sell your current Nj home before moving also. We have decided that we like the looks of a new development and would dearly like to place a deposit on a lot and build, but cannot afford to do so at the present time. I hope your obstacles will clear soon.

  12. I sure hope everything goes through (sooner, rather than later) for you to live across the street from these beauties!
    Please keep us posted!

  13. To each their own!! But you know my love of horses ~!~ I hope your dream becomes a reality very soon!!! It will be worth the time and effort!!

  14. i hope you get your wish soon! i'd adore having those "neigh"bors!

    sorry. couldn't resist. ;)

  15. Well I hope it works out for you both. It would be nice if you could see those guys every day.
    Very nice shots.

  16. Oh, I really hope this works out for you soon, Debbie! It is meant to be. That beauty is just waiting for you to be neighbors. Yes, that purple halter is an omen.

  17. I'll be praying for the obstacles to melt away! It DOES look like you truly belong there! How many horses wear purple bridles to welcome you home?

  18. Interesting post. I really like it.
    Super blog. Yours. ^ ^
