Here is my first attempt at putting together found objects in what I hope is a somewhat artsy way!.
These boxes are vintage ammo boxes, and I filled them with all sorts of objects dug up around the farm, along with some swap and thrift store finds that just seemed to fit.
In addition, I used bamboo that I, er, uh, D/H cut, to fit as a backround, and I also cut up some burlap coffee bags as backing.
The keys are from Michelle, a blogger from Poland who swaps "junque" with me!!!!
One river rock is adorned with a favorite quote of mine about art and friendship.
And, for no apparent reason, I named the piece "Claro Que Si". It just seemed to fit, don't ask me why.............
It will probably end up on Etsy, when I get organized enough to put new inventory on Etsy!!!!

Below are vintage English shoe taps on the upper corners, an antique stove handle, and 2 old dog licenses.
The old white wire insulator has a tiny rusty crown - since the bottlecap states that dogs are the king of everything!!
The 3 pronged antique fish hook was found in a thrift store teapot (!) and fit perfectly with the wooden fish, dangling in front of the sliced up bamboo fishing poles!
A river rock holds a tiny vintage lock, with one of the keys from Poland hanging above, on a strip of tea dyed lingerie hooks.
Small river rock shillelagh with CS Lewis quote, more Poland keys, on some rusty construction wire.
Shards of pottery, bullet casings, and rusty stuff, dug up around the farm
I was going to keep working with it, but after the glue gun attacked me three times, I decided I was DONE!! Tin snips, barbed wire, and hammer and awl, are no problem, but hot glue guns just have it in for me!!!
