James and I are both collectors but he collects a whole lot more stuff than I do. His "stuff" includes anything that's old so the barn is full and just about every nook and cranny in the house has one of his "valuables" hidden away only to be dragged out to show when someone who's interested might come by.
This is our collection of old Marshall Pottery butter churns that we both love. We have a #2, #4, and #5 churn (the numbers are the gallons each will hold) but no lids or dashers for them yet. We suspect the brown jug was a moonshine container, we know the gray one is because it was found in a cellar beneath an old liquor store that was torn down a few years ago. (Some of those jugs still contained moonshine!) We don't know the purpose of the 2 gallon white jug, but James's father found it many years ago in a field he was plowing. On the far left are old marbles that James (often with the help of the grandbabies) has found over the years.
James also collects indian artifacts that he finds every so often. These are celts used by the indians who lived in our area(mostly Quapaw and Tunica tribes). The indians used these tools for breaking bones, etc,,, and for scraping hides. He also has a stone chopping hoe somewhere, I'll take more photos of some of the indian tools one day.
I collect hummingbirds so here are a some of my lovelies. I'm also partial to teapots but I only have 3 of those right now.
