Basement Items Now On-line: Cider Press, Churns, Wrenches, Saws, Bee Smokers, Block & Tackles, Ironware
Photos of another group of those doodads, antiques, gadgets, widgets, junk, tchotchkes, collectibles, oddities, curios, odds, ends, and much, much more that fill my mother’s home are now available for viewing.
If the living room contains my mother’s most impressive collections,1 the basement has the most hidden treasures, almost none of which were captured in last year’s photo expedition. And, as the “Part I” of today’s title indicates, the number of collectibles in this area warrant another group of photos that will be posted at a later date.
Further, much of the material in the basement is stashed in boxes which I had neither the time or energy to open. I did empty one or two randomly chosen containers and will include photos of the contents in “Basement, The Sequel” to give a flavor of what awaits a more aggressive explorer in the still unexplored territory of my Motherland.
Tools, churns, and ironware predominate in this group, which contains the item that is my personal favorite of all those in the house – the handsome bee smoker featured atop this post.

All of the Family Home Photo Safari pictures were taken by me during our Thanksgiving 2007 trip to Mom’s home. The vistas on the title panels of the photo displays depict Table Rock Lake as seen from the cabin’s deck during the same Thanksgiving 2007 visit.
I hope you enjoy viewing these photos as much as I enjoyed photographing my parents’ collectibles and as much as my mother and father enjoyed finding and displaying them.
