House Artifacts #1 & #2

When we got this house, we also "inherited" quite a few interesting objects. Some of them I'm not even sure what they are or what they would have been used for. Case in point, this giant thing over the main hearth:



I can only imagine that the house was once plagued by werewhales and it was used to harpoon them.

 It's over 9 feet long!

The next item is also located near/on the hearth. There are a few more through out the house though.

Perhaps it is a yoke for the world's smallest ox? Maybe baby oxen??

I'm all out of ideas...

In other news, we have cable and internet! woohoo! It was a hard 2 days without it. When the installers came out I asked "So on a scale of 1 to 10, how creepy is this house?"
He replied with "Oh it's not that bad but then again I've never been in here at night."



  1. I think the first one may be part of a plow.

  2. The one things are yokes for goats, more than likely.

  3. The long thing is some kind of fishing/net part. Here is a link that has one in it, it was in some lot at an auction.

  4. Goats and fishing....who would have thought!
