Often find these old shoemaker's lasts at the local estate auction we attend. Rarely will anyone bid on them so they usually end up in a "junk" box that I drag home. Can't seem to sell them at our Junk Shop so I brought them home and made this adorable garden spot right by my back step. Seeing those old shoemaker's pieces always brings a smile to my face when I climb the porch steps. In my mind I can picture an old shoemaker hunched over them making a pair of children's shoes:) Made to last...heavy, solid iron with wonderful age old patina.
Fun found objects that add a bit of interest to my porch step garden.
