Old barns and farm sheds can often be a collection of things both inside and out, all of which will tell a lot about who lives there on the farm. Things and stuff just naturally accumulate there and it’s an open book with tales to tell. A bit like a museum, the collection can cover decades of time and in some cases, even generations of a family.
And as it piles up over time, you get a heap of rustic Americana. Here against the graying rough sawn barn siding are old wagon wheels and yokes from horse-drawn days, a birdhouse jug, and a lot of elk antlers brought back from many hunts out West. There’s also the feminine touch with red geraniums growing in a worn galvanized bucket, and you might also want to know how warm it isn’t in the middle of winter.
Overall, this is quite a unique and eclectic hodge podge that only time can accumulate around an old barn. And it’s only possible with varied interests in life as well.
