Barn Star

Sep 17, 2013 by

When we took a look at the house these stars were everywhere. I’ve seen them before shopping for home décor but didn’t think much of it.  The previous owners left this for us on the deck and now I’m in love with it.

The barn star historically doesn’t have a specific meaning, some may consider it lucky and was used for decoration on barns, homes or considered a makers mark.

I’ve inherited this as the symbol of our new country home and it provides an instance sense of peace at the sight of it.

  1. I love crosses. I have them all over my home. They say that Jesus loves me. No matter how bad the day is, I am reminded that someone died for me. I love the star idea!! When I was little my grandfather built me a 500 sq foot play house and he put a big red star on the door. My grandpa said it was because I was his shining star. So that always reminded me that someone loved me too.

      That is so touching Jenny! It’s amazing how small of a symbol could have so wonderful of a meaning.
