One man's trash...

This is one of the views on my early morning run at the Farm

After two weeks, I finally have my computer back. 
It is all working fine and nothing too major wrong with it. 
I must admit, the first week without it, I couldn't care less. 
But by the end of the second week, I was starting to get a bit frustrated.
I actually rely on having access to a computer to do my online banking, and I now have a pile of overdue bills to pay.
Am looking forward to catching up on my fave blogs, and being in touch with the world again.

This weekend, same as every weekend, we went out to the farm (where we are only farming snakes and fish at the moment).
Those who know me well, know that one of my favourite things to do is to 'treasure hunt'. 
Which basically means, that I love nothing more than trawling through op shops and garage sales and markets, hunting for the perfect piece of treasure.
You can imagine my excitement when we decided to go through the old shack that is on the farm!!
The treasure I found was unbelievable!
I have no idea if any of it is worth anything in a dollars sense, but to me, it is worth a lot.
I found old cutlery and one of the spoons is dated 1912. Which makes it 100 years old (in case you can't figure that out).
I also found some old wooden fishing floats and some other strange things.
So now I am on a mission to figure out how to clean my treasure and find out where it is from. 
I think the cutlery has been hidden away for a very long time. 

We have also been busy clearing trees, and this weekend decided to light a few of the bonfires.
Probably not the best idea.
The grass burnt well though.


  1. Wow. That is a gorgeous photo! Yay for the treasure too. :)

    1. Thanks! I have to say I am already researching the pieces to see if I can figure out where they have come from!

  2. Treasure hunting is so much fun as is the research that comes after a great find. I love your view from your morning run. My morning run view was .... oh wait I didn't run! :-)

    1. Hehe! You made me laugh! I am loving the research! I doubt they are worth anything, but the history is more important to me!

  3. If the spoon has a date on it it is probably silver....
