Big Things of Metal

Before we headed out for our weekend in the Shenandoah Valley, a friend sent me a link to some large metal work in Staunton.

If you click on the link you will see photos of the work.

We looked for the items at the link but did not find them. However, we did find these:


A very large teapot.



Big flower pots on the other side of the tea pot.



The fireman's helmet at the Antique Fire Engine Museum.

  2. Those are fantastic...I love stuff like that! In Raleigh, NC, where we used to live, they had a giant acorn (Raleigh is known as the "city of oaks") that they dropped on New Year's Eve. It was made of copper and really, quite beautiful.

    By the way, I wonder if perhaps the picture on top might be a watering can? It looks just like one I used to have although mine was a WEE bit smaller. :-)

    1. Yes, that could very well be a watering can. Thanks for pointing that out.

  3. I just read all your posts back to the fifteenth or so Pookey.

    It seems like blogs are going out. I don't feel like writing. Well, I write, but I don't post stories because I want them to be great and I'm just too busy to work on them. Plus people aren't reading anyway so what's the point? Then I forget to come to my friends' blogs because I'm not going to my own. It's a little sad.

    By the way, I could not finish that book. I gave it a good try. I got maybe three quarters of the way through and then I was just sick of it. None of it was true. I don't believe she hates the place that much. She was trying to be funny just to be funny, if you know what I mean. And it did just the opposite.

  4. Cool metal work -- though I agree with Beth that the top one looks like a watering can. Thanks for sharing these!
