Antiquing on the farm

Hubby and I have been working through some more of the buildings on the farm to see what is useable and what’s there that we didn’t know about.  Our farm used to be the home of four of the Caldwell siblings from the 1800’s.  Theses are some of the handmade tools and other objects that we’ve found so far:

  2. What treasures to find.
    I have just discovered Victorian tiles in my bathroom. My house dates back to 1877. So I was most interested at looking at your photos.

    • I’ll bet your tiles are gorgeous. Afraid I have 1960 floor tile in mine, wood walls and ceiling (which I love) and a metal shower from the fifties incased in the cement floor under the shower (which I hate). I want a new shower so bad but will have to wait!!

    • I started working here two years ago April and it’s very interesting. It’s a part of Virginia Tech and it’s called the VA Center for Coal & Energy Research. Hopefully I’ll be here until I retire in six years.
