Scrap Metal - YUM!


Look at this .....

Big, heavy, yummy scrap metal.

What makes this so good???
The copper goody at the end!!!

There's a lot of copper there right???  But, I only
want one piece of it ....
do you remember what I did with this ,,,,,,,

This is what I go looking for at scrap yards, alleys,
garbage cans,,, where ever there is scrap, junk or
just plain garbage ,,, there's almost always
a piece to use in building art.

Check out (click on any line below) these little goodies I made from a piece of copper just like the one in the picture above.

1)  Plain Metal Whale 
2) Old Metal Can Whale 
3) Garden Art  w/ crystals 

I love making something out of something that just doesn't belong.  Know what I mean?  It looks like a whale spout to me!  :)    

Only 2 more days until I hear about Sorticulture ... OHHHH!  I can't wait!!!!  LOL            


  1. You'll create a treasure with it!

  2. What a catch! I can only imagine the various metal works that you can make from this. The copper itself leads to a lot of options and possibilities. Every part of that demands to be used or reconfigured somehow. It's not everyday you stumble upon that much scrap metal at one time.
