Rubbish Tuesday #9

Our local town had their fireworks display Saturday night. Daughter and family always come down and watch with us. I was on my way to the nearest Dollar Store to look for a festive tablecloth for outside when I saw a likely candidate for Rubbish Tuesday.
 I saw this wheel leaning up against a tree at the edge of a lawn. The building in the background is an old log cabin that was once an antique store. Sadly, it is no longer in business.
 I didn't find a tablecloth, so took a drive out past the covered bridge in hopes of a colorful bird landing in front of my camera lens. No luck there, but I did see this old grain wagon rusting away at the edge of a field. I remember playing in the soybeans in a wagon just like this one, only it was still orange.
Up  a hill from the wagon, I spied this old barn. It wasn't a productive errand, but it was a productive drive home.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will join in the fun.

My idea was to have a place to post 'old things'.  Anything old and/or deteriorating such as old houses, barns, outbuildings, old cars, rusty things, antiques, interesting junk, or it can be something in pristine condition, but just old. 


1. Link to a post featuring photos of something old.

Country drives are like that sometimes.

Wheels are HUGE for decorating here. They are all over the yards. The grain wagon, I would never have known what it is, it is kind of lovely in it's poor rusted state.

Can I just post a photo of myself. I qualify as I am both old and deteriorating ;0). Your photos are lovely and very evocative too. I am attempting to blog again, though blogger isn't allowing me to post photos unless I download an app as I'm dong it via iPad. I will try to sort it....... ;0) Jeannie aka Letty xx

Roan,

Wagon wheels always catch my eye too. I like the old gravity wagon. We still use one for calf pellets.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

Marie said...

Love your Rubbish Tuesday selections! Great photos! Told my Mom about this meme, because she lives in a small town in Va near rural fields and old farms...I am sure she could find lots to participate with! I promise I will try to find some things here, but the sun destroys everything it touches, and doesn't leave anything for long! :-)

How neat that you have the same stained glass hummingbird picture! Glad you followed my series from Madera Canyon too and knew most of those great birds I have been posting came from there. I do find some around home, too, but that happens less and with lots less variety! :-) Have an awesome week!

Debby Ray said...

Ooo...I get all warm and tingly inside when I see these wonderful things! Thanks for hosting such a cool party!

Awesome! Very productive, I'd say. Who really needs a tablecloth anyway? :)

Sandra said...

i prefer old things and rubbish that you found over birds. the things you see there are things i can't see here. we have birds but not old cabins and wheels.. i love all things old...

Halcyon said...

I always love seeing your old stuff. The wheel is especially nice!
