Old tools in an old barn

I visited a cousin in Virginia over Thanksgiving who lives in the Virginia countryside outside of Richmond.  She lives on several acres with some seriously large trees and a small horse barn.  In the barn there were some old tools and I took the time to take some photos of them in situ, they look like they are waiting for someone to pick them up and start a new project.

Tools for gardening, cooking, woodworking and other duties around a horse barn.

Imagine the weeds are happy that this tool was left on the wall for the last several decades.

A brace with a custom handle, nothing fancy here.

They seem at peace and there is no point moving them from their resting spot.
