Mr. Metalsmith

Metal Critters

"Sculpture is the art of the hole and the lump."
Auguste Rodin 

Welcome, come on in, 
where you can meet
Metal Yard decor that is outrageously 
funny and profound 
for all
 preferred tastes in critters.

Yesterday, I finally stopped by 

Rusty Rabbitiques

in Farmington, Minnesota

You name it, they carry it. New and Old Jewelry, Home Decor, Garden Iron, Candles, Furniture, Re-Purposed items, Fairy things, and piles after endless piles of stuff waiting for you to make an offer, and take it on home.

Besides this endless array of "where dreams come true by the artful hand of Mr. Metalsmith" my most exciting find was discovering 
the resting place for our old town hall.

It was right there on the property and had
 been transformed into a Gift Shop.

The Old Town Hall 
is still standing.

It didn't look quite the same, but it felt good to see this old friend.  I always had a great sense of place when ever I voted, or had any other township business.

Where the Metal Critters Never Sleep

"Ain't nobody here but us chickens." - 

Greetings from, Fancy Fredrick the Frog.

Meet the singing twin-frogs.


Everyone should have at least one
 fabulous flamingo friend forever.

Be honest, do I look like a Pig-Bunny?

I'm just a blazing from the sky!

Someone left the barn door open-

and the critters are making a run for it!

Thanks for stopping by and to all those fathers out there, I wish you happiness and much love, for Father's Day.
