We have a lot of both kinds of found objects here on Gage Road – trash AND treasures. Here are some of my favorite treasures so far:
My new milking chair:
Chicken tractor base, or some other rolling tool cart perhaps?:
Some other fun “found objects” we’ve stumbled upon: a nice, solid 10 foot painters ladder leaned up against the barn, covered in moss and forgotten at the base of a blackberry bush – totally usable! About 9 or so sheets of barn metal roofing: destined for broiler pens and chicken tractors. An old smoker – usability yet to be determined. Lots and LOTS of broken lengths of pvc pipe – i’m sure we can find a use for at least some of them. A neat old square tool. Extra stained glass panels in the attic – in case i decide to give our chicken coop or rabbitry some flare. And of course, a whole shop full of all manner of trash and treasures, including a photo album of some lucky lady’s bachelorette party – of which i will not speak of the details: not family friendly!
Have you ever moved into a place with “memories” left behind? Trash or treasures?
