The Farm Explorers


I love exploring around the farm. FarmMan does too. You just never know what you might find.

We have found several beautiful Native American arrowheads.

Here are some of the bottles, buttons, and arrowheads we have found. The bottle on the right is an old Windex bottle. The sprayer still works! At the bottom are a few of the rattlers from the Timber Rattlesnakes we came across when exploring.

Thanks Rodeo Princess, Yeah, I dug up some big lumps around here and found more dirt, a stump, and more dirt. No hidden gold or silver yet! That is strange about the hair pins and comb. Maybe that was the excuse. "I have to wear my hair down now. I lost all my hairpins and combs" She may have started the newest trend of wearing hair down in her time! lol.. Glad you didn't find the big ole rat that was meant for the trap! Have a great weekend. Pam

Hey Cindy, Well, the wasp nest was cheaper than candy.Haaha. But, it was a nice thought. I still have it in my curio cabinet after 4 years. He didn't think of the Bee my Valentine. Reminds of my school valentines from years(and years)ago. Ohh, the old stone building is interesting. I wonder if it was a smoke house? Or maybe where they kept food cool at? The old newspapers would be a fun read. And yes, the gold fillings sure would be worth a lot more today. Have a great weekend. Pam

WOW! You found some great things! We have a suspicious lump in one of the pastures I have been threatening to dig up for years - it might be the old farm dump OR a dead horse - who knows? The most thought provoking thing I found was hairpins and a comb in the rafters of the basement, in front of the fire place. This part of our house dates prior to 1790. I am haunted by the notion that one day, the woman never put her hair up again. I wonder why. We also found an enormous rat trap in the wall. I don't wonder why, about that. Love your posts.
