The end of my 3 week trip North in June …

After 4 days in NY City I grabbed the Amtrak back to Dutchess County to spend my last 2 days with my daughter and her husband. I knew we wouldn’t have too much time together since it was the end of the week and their business, Bowen Barn, is open on weekends only and I was leaving early Sunday to come home. But I love visiting their shop and was anxious to see how Jody had highlighted the two little chairs that I had painted for them. As usual she did a great job.

Jody is constantly changing and updating the rooms … which is quite a task when you consider that it’s a converted cow barn on three levels ! Here is another room that she “staged”…

Both of them are very artistic and their shop is a reflection of their talents. She has a great sense of design and Brian does amazing things with metal, as demonstrated by this 6 foot armillary.
   And this large bell that he fashioned from a discarded oxygen tank.
It has the loveliest tone, deep and reverberating and if you close your eyes you would swear you were in Italy. 

So that wraps up my 3 week trip. It went by too quickly but I came home with some lovely memories that will last a lifetime !

Enjoyed seeing this last stop on your trip, Ginnie, as your daughter and son in law are talented folks.

Those rooms are so well layed out they look like they belong in a doll's house. Dianne

I would love to take a tour of their barn! Looks wonderful!
Your daughter gets her talent from you, that is obvious!

Very nice, Ginnie. I really like to go to antique shops. And this shop looks to have a lot of other interesting things as well.
