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.

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.
