It's The Barnyard Bash!

Hi everyone! WOO HOO! It's the first Barnyard Bash- all Party Animals welcome!

Pssst, hey Fred let's get this party started with a joke, did ya hear this one...
What do you call a cow on the barnyard floor?............. Ground Beef! (giggle-snort!)

So, pull up a comfy chair, grab a cupcake and let's see what everyone is up to!
If you'd like to VOTE for your favorite cupcake [the pig] just click the poll on my sidebar!
Cupcakes courtesy of Cupcakes take the Cake.

A while back I showed you fall fabric I found to make a table runner...
Here's the finished project, I love the colors and think it screams fall!
I decided to use just some of the fabric, the scene is so detailed I didn't want it to get too busy. 
The barnyard is well represented in this beautiful print!

I think the little hen looks happy, but eagerly awaits her new home-
enter the drawing by linking up before Sunday, September 12th at noon!

I picked up this three dimensional shelf at HomeGoods years ago! It's not easy to get a picture because it's so dark, but I have it in the kitchen and really like it! Looks kinda French-y to me...
Ma gave me the fun Lenox rooster and chicken-thanks Ma!

And I'll end with Earl, he's been very excited all week knowing that you'd all be stopping by! 
I could tell that he was up to something and that worried me!!!
So I hid the duct tape and told him I needed his help, I wanted to practice for the Cloche Party Sept 17th...

Don't worry, I'll let him out, eventually...
Ok folks, thank you for stopping by, please feel free to link up and 
have a happy day:@)


  1. What a wonderful party!

    Better lock your doors ..... I'm gonna have to come take that fabric off your table and bring it to my house! LOL

  2. Such a fun post. Love your barnyard folks. Your fabric is wonderful with all the barn scenes. I would probably frame the panels. I absolutely love the little pig in the cloche. He is so cute and he really is going to be fun at the cloche party. Your rooster corbel is gorgeous. So different. Love it. Thanks for hosting such a fun party. I can't wait to see everyone's "farm friends". Hugs, Marty

    What fun! Poor Earl. The table runner is beautiful


  31. Good morning Lynn, I linked up late last night but I was too tired to visit. I really had fun doing this meme.

    Of course, I love your fun post today. When I was looking for a cartoon I saw the cow one. Very funny. I love the fabric and your barnyard is full of the best farm pictures. Did you know I lived on a dairy farm until I was 9 years old? My memories of the farm are still very vivid. Your rooster shelf is awesome. I have never seen one like it. Cute display too.

    Thanks for the barnyard fun.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  32. Well, I couldn't join in this time, but you sure have a hit here! Everyone seems to be having a great time! Best to you--Jacqueline

  34. Ya'll are havin' waaaay too much fun! I just adore your 'fall fabrics' and that little Earl....Heeehehehehe...ya crack me up girl!

  38. Oh Lynn..I so wanted to go to the Barnyard Bash today, but I had a little difficulty last night with my back and legs..a tumble doesn't'll be fine, but I am so disappointed :(
    Guess I should've written one ahead, but life gets in the way somtimes.
    Is this gonna be a weekly party? I hope so. It seems to be a real Barn Stormer! I'm havin so much fun lookin around the farmyard!

  39. G'morn, Lynn ~ Now if I were a hen & had that beautiful topper sit on I'd be happier than a pig in mud, also. Beautiful table covering ... cute cow joke ...

    TYSM for being such a beautiful friend.

    Have a beautiful weekend.
    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

  40. I don't know how anything could be more fun than 'Pigs In Mud', but I think you've Gone and Done It....Yep, this BASH is It! You might not believe this...especially after seeing my Gossipin' Goat post...but I'm a quilter and I have a quilt with that same fabric. In fact that Quilt may be my next subject for the Barnyard is going to be a weekly thingie...right? Thanks for a really fun Meme. Hope to see ya on CollectInTexas Gal....Sue

  48. What a fun post! Your table runner is beautiful. You have set fall in motion. I have had a difficult time deciding about the cupcakes...I love cows and I love sheep. They will have to split my vote between themselves.
    Very cute post!

  49. Wow, this is the first time I have been involved in link party this is kinda cool. Thanks for letting me participate

  50. Look at all these "Party Animals!" I would say your bash is a huge success and I'm glad I have arrived. Wind, rain and snow could not keep me away!!!

    Thanks Lynn, I absolutely love your pretty Fall tablecloth, so warm and inviting. Visit me on Monday, cause I'd love for you to win my giveaway to go with it!!!!!

  51. Lynn, Your Barnyard Bash is such an oinking success!!!!! What a fun group of party animals are assembled here! I'm sorry to be so unfashionably late but I'll catch up. I couln't miss the great fun!
    I voted for the pig! I just had to!
    You are quite the seamstress. That is a fabulous fall runner. I am wild about the way you combined the fabrics, bordering each one with that lovely burnt orange.
    What a sweet giveaway... I don't have a covered hen dish. But I have been longing for one for some time. I'll cross my fingers.
    Thanks for hosting this great bash... now off to visit!
    Congrats on the great success!

  52. What a fun event...looks like everyone is enjoying it!! Your table runner is soooooooo pretty. LOVE the rooster shelf!!!!

  53. I can't wait for another one of your events. I wanted to do this one but was out of town and found I had no time to prepare. I look forward to seeing what is coming next. Hard to believe I wasn't a follower before. We meet for Pink Saturdays, and not following you caught me totally off guard, not anymore girlfriend.
    I am in love with Home Goods and your shelf. I love roosters and yours shelf is simply the best of the best. Char


Thank you for stopping by-enjoy your day!
