Ellyn has two entries in our Found Objects Found Art contest.

My husband’s vintage jar of nails.  He found it in his dad’s garage as a boy and it appealed to his eye.  It hangs out sweetly in our red and turquoise kitchen.

And…We like to call this Tits Magee.  I was in a particular funk when a girlfriend found these in Washington, D.C.’s historic Eastern Market, in a throwaway bin.  She knew they would cheer me and she was right.  They are probably my most bizarre set of S&P shakers in an increasingly weird collection.
