So....Audrey chose the theme today... Metal. So here are my metals with a little story to boot.
Jim wanted me to take a walk down to the little store a few blocks away to get something for him and I thought - oh wonderful chance to find a bit of metal...so my camera went with me.
So.. instead of my direct route I tootled.. to the library bike rack and fountain..
Then, I tootled around the block...
I really do love ornamental iron.
I was almost to the store when I spied this and tootled off that way.
And then there was this lovely old leaded glass window....
It was a very good thing that I tootled because as I came around the corner and walked up to the little store, there were police everywhere!!?? Had I arrived a few minutes earlier, if I had gone straight to the store, I would have walked into the middle of an armed robbery!!! Not only does this just not happen in our little town, but in broad daylight, never. So thanks to Audrey, I was spared!! Thank you Audrey for sending me off in search of metal!!!
Huge grateful hugs hon!!!
So...I comforted our young store clerk who was a wreck, poor kid and headed home. Thanked my lucky stars and got a huge hug from Jim.
I could not do a collection of metal without these last two...my bead bowl and...
A sample of Jim's silver ore...the dark stuff is the silver!!
