There’s an abandoned house down the street, right across from the mailboxes.
(Okay, there are a LOT of abandoned houses around here, but this one is VERY VISIBLY abandoned.)
I got bored one day a week or so ago & thought I’d wander in to see what I could find. (Also I needed a piece of screening to cover the stove vent, & I figured chances were good I’d find one there…)
The which I did. I _also_ saw several REALLY AWESOME things inside the doorway when I peeked through. Which was easy, cos it hasn’t got a door any longer.
But it was all a bit too much to carry home, so last week I came back with the van.
Herein I present: My loot.
It needs a bit more scrubbing, but that’s easy enough.
I’m gonna repaint this one — yes, probably purple — & put a plant in it.
& then the PRIZE.
YES it’s a NEARLY ENTIRELY FUNCTIONAL SPINNING WHEEL
…now all we need is a sheep.
Better yet? It’s an Ashford.
Which means 1) It’s good quality & ALSO 2) you can still get parts for it.
