The leaves were peaking this Columbus Day Weekend
For me Fall leaves and old iron just seem to go together and create the feeling of a wonderful Fall. We have had an incredible stretch of warm weather that is still going on for a few more days this week.
A few days ago I found this wonderful array of old iron and brass at a garage sale buried in an old cardboard box. I was so excited. They were anxious to get rid of them and only charged me $3.00!!
Some familiar shapes and some unknown but all wonderfully old looking
That set of drawer pulls is a delight: small and very ornate

A drawer pull that I have had for sometime. I recently cut it down to make a pendant. It was just stamped brass and not very strong so I soldered it to a copper sheet back. Now it is ready to be made into a necklace.
I am looking forward to turning that Maple Tree syrup tap into a necklace as well. I have wanted to find just the right one for sometime as it is such a part of this place where I live. Hopefully this wonderful Fall will be the catalyst!!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
