In the rustic western town, Woodlake, California, and surrounding countryside, people often decorate with relics. It takes artistic flair to arrange relics to look more than junky.
I’m still at the junky level. My friend Sally Pace has moved beyond that. She and her husband host weddings and many free events at their rustic ranch.
Mike pampers his favorite relic. Not only is it in the barn, but it’s covered.
The following 1940s picture is a relic even though Sally’s road looks almost the same.
Sally’s house and all its decorative relics weren’t there yet.
Woodlake Hardware boasts of nearly 100 years of service, making it somewhat of a relic, yet the building today hasn’t changed much since the 1940s when Morris Bennett started working there.
Morris decorated the walls with relics from the past.
Of course, the pair of skates is my favorite relic.
At 90+ Morris still works most days.
He’s my hero, but he’s NOT a relic! :)
