Yesterday, our neighbor asked us if we would like to go to his farm. He said the kids might enjoy it and that he wanted to ask me if there were some things I might like before he threw them on the burn pile.
Red Alert!! Red ALert!! Farm objects on the burn pile??? Gotta go right now....
It was only a 5 minute drive. The above barn is over 100 years old.
I knew I had to bring along my camera. My whole body said, "This I gotta SEE."
It was an exploration of light and texture.
Come look inside the barn...
Love how the light glints through the rooftops. Here are some photos to enjoy. Scroll to the bottom to see what we brought home!!
I really wanted to bring home this dog house. I thought the teal color was so cool.
Alas, my husband tried to lift it....
And said we would need a forklift! That's ok, we can all enjoy it from the photo.
I also fell in love with this nesting box. Our neighbor said he would think about it. I think it would be super-cute to put mittens and magazines in (LOVE magazines!!!)
Our neighbor let us bring home these beautiful vintage bowling pins.
They were just laying in the barn, so we boxed them up and brought them home.
Again, too good to pass up! Don't know what I am going to do with them yet, but I love the texture on the old skins.
I absolutely LOVE this photo I took in the barn. The picture of this ship was in there on the barn floor next to the pins. Such a beautiful arrangement, I couldn't have planned it.
This beautiful old chest was his grandmother's. He said she brought it over from Sweden. It was destined for the burn pile.
What a great piece. Again, don't know what I am going to do with it, yet. It definitely needs to be cleaned because it was in the limestone basement of the old farmhouse.
Any ideas? Leave it? Paint a weathered Swedish flag on top?
I am so excited!! I have always wanted a flat-topped trunk but never actually splurged on one. I would love to hear your feedback!
