It seems that our screened-in porch has become the depository of all things ranch/farm/industrial that we have accumulated over the years. In an effort to corral some of the stuff into a sense of order, Bob put up a shelf in one corner last week. The brackets are some sort of hardware store thingies that were in my Dad's farm workshop.
The round window came out of Bob's childhood home. I, also, have the window that was in the farm house where my Dad was born. As soon as we get the frame spruced up, I'm going to hang it in this corner, too.
The red barn lantern belonged to my great-grandfather; the blue-tipped thing is a sheep brand in the shape of an H for my family name; plus a cow bell; my Dad's spurs; and more brands.
There is still more stuff to organize and display.
In the meantime, this is the view from the porch -- our shrub roses have been beautiful this year!
