Old Farm Finds

While I was at the farm site taking photos of the white barn I showed you in my last post I spied this old green Dodge truck.


It was sitting next to the barn I haven't showed you yet.


I also saw what looks like the wheels from an old wagon.
I edited it with Yester-color  in Picmonkey for a vintage look.


I like finding old trucks, cars, tractors and farm equipment.  Do you?

Wander on over to see all things rural.

Thanks for stopping.  Have a great evening and I'll see you next time.

I like the treatment of your photo on the wagon wheels. And that truck looks like it would start right up and drive off down the lane.

Can you believe it snowed up here again today? Didn't last. Just the fact that it snowed yet again!

I think the word Madge used today fits perfectly here - 'farmyard art'!
Love the truck and that's a great edit of the wheels!
I love PicMonkey. :)

Oh yes, I love old things from barns and houses to trucks and farm equipment to housewares and linens!

I love to see older stuff like this truck. You can see that it has done a lot of work in its lifetime.

I do like to find old vehicles - and farm machinery. Great photos.

Jacquelineand.... said...

Reminds me of my grandfather's old truck and I LOVE the brick/tile wall behind it in the old photo.

Your photos and the way you edit them are always such fun!

Brian King said...

Love the old equipment! I have an uncle who owns some old Model T cars and my grandfather had an old tractor. Cool stuff!

Anne Payne said...

Your editing is perfect! I see a lot of old farm equipment around my area. It makes for interesting photos. Usually provides a lot of texture. Thanks fro visiting my blog and commenting :)
I'm a new follower here.

Nancy Claeys said...

Always love seeing these vintage pieces -- much of it is being sold for scrap these days and is fairly scarce. Great edits Barb!

Nicki said...

Nice find, neat edit on the wagon wheels, and I concur with Nancy and others - barn yard art.

andrea@townandprairie said...

Man, would I love to drive one of those old trucks to work today! Rust and all!

ladyfi said...

Great old Dodge truck. Nice shots.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Very cool! I do like old trucks and farm equipment. Lots of that sort of thing in my neck of the woods :)

Bilancia Designs said...

OH! Would we love to have this old truck at our wedding venue! It's absolutely perfect! LOVE the pictures!
Hope you are well, Barb...it's been awhile since I've been out of my studio. Weddings, weddings, weddings... :) If you look at my blog you'll see what I've created for a wedding venue in Hope, NJ. It took me forever to get it together but I have a wonderful team healping me and we pulled it off.
Hope you're doing well. :)
Hugs,
Lisa xo

I love finding old farm equipment whether it is a field or used as yard art I know it was well used on a farm at one time.

BTW: I am glad you got to see Snoqualmie Falls and please dig out that picture. In the early spring or after a huge rain it is always roaring. MB

Love that white barn with the cupola. Bob and I saw a barn a few weeks ago that had 4 lightning rods on it with the glass balls...an unusual find nowadays around here. Wish I had my camera. Oh the stories that Dodge truck could tell you if it could. Janice

Leave It To Davis said...

I always love finding old trucks and farm equipment....love it! Just like finding old houses and barns. What's with that? Are we deranged some way? lol

orchid Miyako said...

dearest Barb,
That great truck (never heard of the wagon wheels) looks really awesome; must have worked a lot. The picture of wheels from an old wagon edited with yester-color is so appropriate♡♡♡ 
Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Debbie said...

Very cool old truck!! I have done several entries on rusty old rides. They fascinate me, I'm not sure why!!

Have a great weekend!!

Elaine said...

Nice old truck! If we found an old truck, hubby would be out checking it out more closely. Actually, any old car or truck. We've made as many drive-backs to check out an old vehicle as we do to check out old barns.

Genie Robinson said...

You and I would have as much fun our and about as I had with Beth last week walking the street of Waynesboro. These are the vintage items for which I am always searching. Adore the old pickup. They are my passion. genie

Ava Harness said...

It must've been a reliable truck before. Although it seems like it was abandoned not many years ago, don't you think? The coat was still good and not even chipping. I hope someone would consider restoring it, even for the sake of display or preservation. Lucky you find this truck and wagon! Ava@Elite Toyota
