Last week we went to meet one of the factory guys to pick up a load
of the industrial pieces that we love so much. As we pulled into the
lot near the old wooden building, where we had not been before, I
spotted what looked like a grain elevator. This was very exciting to
me as I have been intrigued by these edifices, even though their
invention, in part, spelled the beginning of the end for grain sacks
around the world. See the little building up on the roof ? That’s the
grain elevator !
Like an indoor silo, it stored the grain so that the farmer did not have
to. Inside was a riot of eye candy !
No paper ? No worries ! All plans, calculations and fine art could be
worked out right on the wall.
Mixed among the many treasures that day was a wonderful grain
sack filler/funnel to which a grain sack would be attached and loaded
with grain. Shown on the right in the photo below, my new
filler/funnel sports a great sack from my inventory. I already owned
the filler/funnel on the left. So I guess that means I have a collection!
What a good way to display lavender bags and pillows.
Sometimes, the unexpected pleasures are the best ones of all.
