This lovely lady is made from a discarded olive oil can. It is easily done with wire and bits of leftover buttons, screening etc. I used an ice pick and hammer to put holes in the can and then used the wire to connect the pieces.

I do hope you visit me at Brimfield, I do all 3 shows and set up at New England Motel in the pavillion (my space is # P2.) I am busy working on other pieces and loving this site! What a boost of creativity!

Happy junking!

I love things made from vintage tins and cans…great piece. I usually go to Brimfield two or three times a year, I’ll have to look for your booth at the spring show.
