odds and ends

I received this little rocking chair as a gift almost 40 years ago. A friend worked for the Continental Can Company and his co-worker made these chairs from new empty cans.

Imagine cutting the sides of a can into strips that measure less than 1/4 inch and then curling them to make this design. The bottom of the can forms the seat and then the back and seat were covered in velvet.


It always amazes me to see just how talented some people are!
Show me some of your treasures.....and have a blessed day!
