YIKES! A Moose in Our Yard!

kirkus(5a)February 20, 2011

Last weekend, I went to our favorite, country, thrift store and bought a TON of heavy iron pieces! The owner had been saving the pieces for me to see. :o) He knows me well! I'll post the other pieces later but here's a moose I bought. The moose is VERY heavy and rustic...soooo cool! I love him and had to share THE MOOSE IN OUR YARD!!! :o) Love a good find! Bear Hugs! (or should I say MOOSE HUGS?!) Kirk

He looks like caste iron. I started a small collection of caste iron animals but I have never seen that one! Great find! He looks like he would be right at home with your bears.

Luna, Mr. Moose is cast iron and oh-so-heavy! I absolutely love him! Our cat Toeby is afraid of him though! LOL! Bear Hugs! Kirk

I love a good moose!! Mine is 3ft by5ft. I picked up a "christmas" decoration, removed the lights, painted him brown and planted him in my hosta garden. I LOVE him. When I get the energy he will become a topiary.

HOW COOL is that? Oh, yeah. Of course he's cool. He's standing in the snow. lol
When you get tired of him I'll take him off your hands. I'll meet you at the pass.

Looks like he's been tamed & found a good home! Nice find! Lookin' forward to your iron projects! TFS! Jeanne S.

I commented on the conversation side, but he merits another post. He is perfect for your house, he must really weigh a ton. I don't have to many iron pieces, but DH has tried to put a halt to any new concrete pieces in my future.

NICE!!! Perfect too because a moose of regular size would have cost a fortune! This you can call Mini Moose! I want some thrift stores like yours. Got to go thrifting today.
Love, Jules
