I recently attended a Spinning Bee at Tare Share Farm. This homestead was built in the mid-1700's which is the same time frame as our home. It is also a Cape home like ours. The difference is that this home has been kept as authentic as possible over the years, and is historically correct.
The loft area held some nice old wheels that had a wonderful patina. These wheels are in working condition.
The barn also had several walking wheels, chairs made of spinning wheel parts and an assortment of tools. It was a very interesting place to spend some time!
Another loft held yet more wheels. They were everywhere! I wanted to spend all my time investigating all of the antique wheels but also had to spend some time spinning, watching competitions, eating snacks and of course checking out their house.
Since it is a working farm they had some critters. These colorful little friends were underfoot and seemed to like the sound of all the spinning wheels.
Of course there were sheep...quite a variety. Thi one caught my attention because of his fashionable hairstyle. I don't think he could see much!
