I have been meaning for us to go to the Skinner Farm Museum for a while now...I just found out about it by chance when looking at a list of round barns a while back. I quickly got on Google Earth to see if it was still there, and it was. Today was the first time I remembered it when we actually had the time to stop. For this Tuesday's Treasures, I am showing you a few shots from the Blacksmith's Shop. Notice the huge bellows there in the corner in the above photo!
This is the another corner...there was no room to walk and get good photos..just had to stand and click.
See that barrel back against the wall? It is made from a single wooden log....it is too wide to fit through a normal door. There was no way for Roger to stand beside to just the proportion.
Everywhere we looked, there was more and more.
I hope you enjoyed these photos from the Blacksmiths shop....
This shot was taken over in Illinois one evening in November in 2008. Every time I run into it it makes me pause. It is as if they were waiting for the farmers to return. But it was late evening and I think they were done for the day.
First we have this gate/fence shot taken just a couple weeks ago...
and then we have this.. I have posted a version of it a few years ago. Not the best lighting, but still we can see this Short-eared owl. Several of them used to come to the strip pit area and spend the winter. I have not seen a single one out there in over two years, maybe three.
Just for the heck of it, I will throw this one in, too. I hope you like them....
IF I can remember, I am linking to Theresa's meme:
This is a repeat post...from 2010. I was trying to find something for Tuesday's Treasures and could not make up my mind. So, old cars came to mind and I eventually came to this one. I chose it cause I had so many different views of it. I hope you like them.
