Interesting Finds!!

Living out here in the middle of no where is just SO awesome!! I cannot even find the words to say how blessed I feel to enjoy this beautiful peace every single day! So last week while I was out exploring my country side I decided I wanted to get a closer look at this barn that sits on a dead end road parallel to my house. This barn has always struck me as odd...There is nothing else in it's vicinity other than some antique cars and a truck sitting on it's side by the road! There is also a pond or swamp is more like it right behind the barn..

After maneuvering many tree branches and such to get close to the barn I finally get up to the window and find these...

If you click on the picture you can see that the year these were published was 1962!

Seriously these are stacked in a pile in month order next to this open window. It seems kind of odd to me, and I am shocked that the weather elements haven't destroyed these by now! I'd like to take a closer look at the barn but I was getting a bit nervous with all of these mysterious noises all around me and I was by myself! I kept waiting for a mama bobcat or coyote to come out and eat me LOL!! Next time I'll look closer...

This truck is sitting on it's side?!


  1. I bet treasures abound in that barn. I could probably resist the temptation to go in just because of the critter factor.

    WV = cracheng
    Release the cracheng!

  2. I love exploring! Beautiful pictures.

    Enjoy your day!

  3. Oh yeah I can't wait for some nice weather so I can take my new slr out and explore! We're going up to South Dakota tomorrow, I am SO excited!

  4. Oh we would love that bird cage for our business, LOL! We look for vintage junky treasures like that.
    What a fun discovery!! :)

  5. What great shots you got. I sure do remember those mags.What a great find. I however would not have the nerve to go in by myself.
    Thanks for sharing.

  6. How fun! I wish I had more time to just to wander around with my camera. The images are great. Places like that are my favorite to shoot at. There is is old, abandoned industrial lot near my home that I've been trying to drum up the guts to shoot in; don't know why, but I think I'm afraid to get caught! I'm loving these, keep em coming!

  7. Great finds, indeed! Love how you captured them.

  8. Hay Michelle I've left you an award! Come on over and get it!:

  9. Wow, how cool! Well, besides the scary noises!!
    You do live in a beautiful area!!

  10. PG~ I totally thought of you when I seen that bird cage! That's why I took the picture LOL!!

  11. I love old abandoned building like that - what cool things you can find! I would've snagged those NatGeos - collectors items.... of course after making an attempt at locating their owners...
