Obsession With The Rust
Do you have an obsession with something? For me, I have an obsession with rust – something old, something rusty, something with history and a story. I find myself drawn to items that you can look at or picked up and imagine a person using. What was life like back at the time this item was used? What challenges did the people face?
I focus on how time changes items and the steps the world has maybe made for the better, or for the worse. Depending on how one looks at the item.
Any clue what this is?

ANSWER: Manure spreader.
You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you. In that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.

What are these hidden treasures you may be asking? Old homesteads, barns, vehicles and antique gems. Places that hold stories within the walls and the equipment that reminds me of how much has changed over the past 100 years.
This tractor was one of two on an old cherry orchard property in Northern Door County was an excellent place to search for such treasures.

In life, I enjoy finding new purpose for old items. Apparently, the owner of this planter out of an old truck feels the same way.
