Last year my mother and I went to a craft fair and someone there was selling some things along this line. Mostly for gardens and things. Everything was made from old tools or metal pieces. Some were painted and some weren't. Mom and I were fascinated! I bought my step-dad a plane and my dad a drag-racing car from them. They had lots of animals and insects of all sizes and some pet food dish holders and things like that too.
If you ever make any more pieces I'd love to see them!!
