Good evening... hope all is well with you.
Can you imagine keeping your food in one of these?
or keeping your bees in it?
Bees you wonder...well I have been told it is either
an OLD bee hive or hornbeam.
More have told me that it was a hornbeam than a bee keeper.
I love it either way...
they are getting rare..
hard to fine...
and are really a cool piece of history.
"A Simple Life"...(jill peterson)
did an article on them in the fall 2011
You can see where this one had an old leather band
around it at one time...possibly to hold it together??
It still has a small piece of it clinging on.
This is a neat piece also, great green paint still in some areas.
Have never seen one with "cubbies" as I call them
You can see where the flour sifter used to be.
This may just have to hang in MY kitchen...lol
Excuse the red tape, did not want it flying open
for the trip home from TN.
Looking forward to returning there in August..
see all you guys again!!!!
We are going at it pretty steady getting ready for our
So looking forward to that!
Been told it is a packed house...so if
you can attend I think it would be worth your time!!
I now have a screened door on the front of the shop....
Such a pleasure to have the door open and hear the birds,
smell the fresh cut grass
and of course hear the traffic!!
Thanks honey...aka Lee.
Thank you for your visit to Millstone
and we will talk later.
