Snails

tehutiAugust 1, 2010

Here is a picture of my latest garden snail.

Lowe's sold these light fixture parts for $0.25 so, like, what's a guy to do?

The head on this guy was once the top on a room candle - hated to see those go in the trash.

Two 8d nails make up the eyes (whatever).

The center part of the shell came from a ladies designer belt.

The body part was once an old shelf bracket.

The rest is steel scrap and paint.

Priced for immediate sale at the ridiculous low price of $25,000.00. Oops! must have misplaced the comma. h h h

Then you should love this little guy.
It is made from a marble (head), 2 half-marbles (on the shell), a large washer, sheet metal leaf (from an old lamp, a few small nails, and an old Stamping-up block.

I have a few other new pieces I'll have to post on Trash to Treasures. They just ain't garden art.

Robert, so glad to see you on here again with your snails. I'm confused. Where's the light fixture part.

That is way cute. I think I need a snail in my yard, it's something I don't have, as long as it's as cute as yours and doesn't eat my hostas.
