Cool, very industrial farm chic :)
Any idea what that ring was used for?
Hi Clare,Didn't you know? I'm the Assistant Farm Stylist--right below Mother Nature. : )Hi Pablo,That ring (which is about 9 inches in diameter) is off a small wooden barrel that probably originally held nails. Our little valley was once home to a thriving sawmill industry. At one time, there were 40 families living down here. There was even a school. There is a large sawdust pile in our front field where the sawmill was. I use the sawdust in the garden. Our house is the only one that remains--most of the others were destroyed at one time or another by flood. The older portion of our house is a log structure that was once the general store.There are several of those rings kicking around the farm. Joe puts them to use doing things like holding fenceposts together. I hang them on a wall and call them Art. : )
