25 Days of Ornaments: Day 5

We moved to Tennessee 5 years ago. It's hard to believe it's been that long.  Where did the time go!? 
When we first moved here we were fascinated by the old barns. Especially the ones with old advertisements for Rock City. Hundreds of barns from Tennessee up to Michigan were painted with "See Rock City," and other fun ads, sometime in the 20s and 30s. It got people interested and they would drive down and see it. 

Many of those old barns are still standing and have never been repainted.  There's even one near our town that boasts of the seven states you can see from Rock City. 

When we went there in March we bought a bird house barn and this ornament. I guess it was our way of embracing life in Tennessee and enjoying the local heritage.
