barn wood background for pictures

Above and below photos are what use to be a blacksmith shop


So if you have read my Bio you know my company is named after the ranch my grandma lives at on Burnt Mill Rd. Her ranch is a homestead which means our family has lived on it for generations and she can remember lots and lots of houses and buildings that have come and went.

Well I went out to visit today and to look for a new background for taking my pictures. I was searching for something to help warm up my pictures some yet still be simple and not take away from my soaps. What I found was very old barn wood which is all over the place there. Many old buildings are still there and barely standing as you can see from the pictures.

This wood is so amazing the colors in them are out of this world. When my mom saw it tonight she said she wanted some to put up on a wall because it was very pretty(she grew up on this ranch).

See bottom picture this is the newest batch of Stonehenge type soap taken on this wood. I think it is a keeper for sure what do you all think?!?!?
