Found Materials

 A crow, I think

I love to see how old items can be transformed into something new, and whoever thought up this clever design has a fantastic imagination.

Sitting pretty

This rusty old crow is sitting on a bar that joins two metal wheels into...

Hinges on the wooden posts allow the wheels to open  into the yard

a gate. Clever, don't you think?

In celebration of the old and wonderful "stuff", I  am connecting to Rubbish Tuesday HERE.

Quite imaginative. I finally figured out how the gate works. Both wheels swing open independent of each other. Whew!
