Little Treasures

I can't say that I've walked the entire 20 acres yet. There are some spots that are so thick with briars and weeds we have stayed clear, except to drive through. Surprisingly we haven't come across much trash, a little bit here and there- but for land that hasn't been touched in years it's very clean.
Though we haven't found much trash, we have found some other things. Glass bottles. Probably 100's. Clear, green, brown and a couple broken blue ones so far. They are in random spots in the woods, mixed with old cans (looks to be a lot of Budweiser cans). We filled a box up one day in October and brought them home to look up. Some of them we found online and figured out they stopped being made in the 1960's. I already have ideas of using several of them as décor in the house when we build. I think it will be neat to look back and know that decorations in the house actually came off the land.
Once some of the weeds started dying on their own, we came across some antlers laying out in the grass. I haven't decided what I will do with them yet- if I can keep them away from Rigby. He recently discovered them sitting on a bookshelf and keeps carrying them around the house when he thinks nobody will notice.
We came across an old deer stand one day in the woods. We each took a turn climbing up the spikes in the tree but neither sat on the chair :)
