I've been away from blog land for a few days.
This is where I spent a couple of days.
I watched this handsome blacksmith give a couple of demonstrations.
A few more handsome guys joined in on the demonstrations. You can read more about our visit at Osage Bluff Blacksmith blog. As you will read, things were priced for sale at this shop.
We found this small lidded crock. It didn't look this nice when it was uncovered from layers of coal dust and spider webs. I took a steel wool pad and scrubbed rust off the bottom of it.
This old minnow trap was found too. After a little research we believe this to be a wired frame Joy model. This particular model was made by the Johnson company. They were manufactured between the years of 1930 to 1960.
This #7 Wagner griddle was not among the hidden treasures. It was a gift from Scott, a blacksmith from our organization. He loves cast iron as much as I do. Scott knew I was wanting a small griddle for my camper. Thanks Scott!!
I will leave you with this smile. Because as of today, we now know if we are having a granddaughter or grandson. But until the new parents to be make their announcement, Lizzie's lips are sealed!
