If you are a reader of Virginia Spiegel's blog, you will know that not only is she an incredible fiber artist, but she does a fabulous job with Fiber Art For A Cause, and I am not giving her near the credit she is due here. On Tuesdays Virginia conducts the Garbage Day Project, which has made me so much more aware of other folks' trash. As I was walking the neighborhood this morning, I came across some interesting stuff:
Our friends Doug and Jo had this out in front of their house, ready for pickup by our friendly trashmen. Do you know what it is?? C'mon, give it a guess! I was so thrilled, as it had already started to rust, so I could just bring it home and get busy with some more rusting........and think of how nice that would be with wax, or with spray paint, or..................! I was in 7th heaven!!!
Here's a closeup of my great find:
Yeah, I know Rayna, it's a bit hard on the eyes, but I had to do it!
I spent the better part of the afternoon in the Dentist's chair getting my new teeth (2 crowns).........growing old ain't always what it's cracked up to be! So, tomorrow I'm ready to start on another scarf and get busy with the rust!
