A Few Metal Finds

The heat has lifted here, and I my motivation has returned.  Even with the horrific weather last week, I managed to make a few quick (very quick) hunting trips.  Here are a few of my small finds.



You know I have a thing for vintage metal, like the finds above.



I found a bag of vintage porcelain lined mason jar lids at a garage sale.






I also found chippy hardware,






ornamental iron,



(I have an idea for these.)



and vintage keys.




Lot's of projects started.  I can't wait to show you what I'm doing with these two pieces.



Any guesses?  See ya soon.

  10. I am guessing that you'll be attaching those beads around the bottle with some special paint technique! I think you did something like this before. You found some great pieces to work with. I know your creative wheels are turning!

  16. The heat lifted here, too, what a relief! Now we can work in the driveway again without burning our skin off on the concrete ( I sat down last week on the driveway and it was so hot I thought I could fry an egg on it). Your treasures are super crusty- just the way we like it!
