Some things left behind on property we bought

A couple of things that were left behind was this great ladder!!! This hutch was left sitting in this spot and I haven't moved it. I want to rip it apart and restore it. I got all the green shutters too, also a bunch of chairs and an old wooden bench that is in the cellar. I will have to take a pic of that.

My project. 2 years ago we bought the house next to us. It has 2 apartments upstairs and one on the entire first floor. We compeletly renovated it. The property has a couple of building on it, along with the garage. It was an elderly couple who lived there and they kept everything!!!! I got some great old things at the sale and a few things were left behind. The family worked for an entire year to empty this house for the sale and what ever was left afterwards we just told them not to worry about it and we would get rid of it when we got dumpsters.. I claimed this building for myself right away. My dream is to restore it. The floor is sagging and some wood needs replaced, and I want to paint it. Luckily the roof does not leak. I want to be able to move my crafting area to there. This is what it looks like now.

I am enjoying the summer, and I know it's only July, but I am starting to get that "I can't wait until fall feeling"!!! I love being inside, nice and cozy, turning on my lil lights, burning candles. During the summer months I tend to put some things away to give the house a lighter, cooler feel, and in the fall make it more cozy looking! I can't wait!!!
