Old dinner bell and bucket at Settlers Museum of Southwest Virginia

These old dinner bells in the yard of old farmhouses have such charm. They always attract me to them. I have one, but we have not put it up yet. Last summer we were in such indecision about whether we were going to get to stay where we are. Maybe I will get it put up this summer. Again, I have the original, then sepia and black and white.
This dinner bell is in the front yard, right behind it is the front porch that I took this photograph from. When I posted it I had a little more information about the Settlers Musuem.
I just liked the look of this bucket on the fence.

Not much difference in the color and the black and white, but the sepia looks entirely different.
You can click on Settlers Museum of Southwest Virginia on the left sidebar and see all the photographs I took there. I am finished posting these color, black and white, and sepia versions of the museum grounds.

The bucket on the fence is a great shot! And I like dinner bells too. I have a moose bell outside my cabin. So far no moose have shown up... ha,ha

Leedra: The sepia tone seems to be right for this series of old time shots.

All of these pictures from the Settlers Museum are very very good.. As I've said, I tend to like the b&w ones the best. BUT--they are all good!
