at Fearington Village barn.
It is snowing as we turn in with clear skies ahead.
Always attracted to samplers and the bluebirds are unusal-
I love this original
blue painted chest.
Great old crock to serve and keep cool liquids with lots of blue
Old Metal hat used as part of a trade sign
The gun is HUGE! Another part of a trade sign.
Unusual butter pat mold with carved cow.
I love this old folk art drawing. It just
makes you smile.
There were lots of old hand forged iron work.
I collect heart-shaped things.
Hand forged iron lizard
Different representations were made to ward off evil spirits.
The snakes are interesting too.
Feather ware- the blue edges were painted using a feather. The leaf shaped
bowl is unusual.
As we leave the barn the snow starts again.
A great day with lots of treasures.
