Rusty birds had a fan blowing on a couple of their kinetic pieces.
There were several appealing trellis designs including an Asian-inspired creation, not pictured, that was my favorite.
Love the branches with birds mounted on old window sash. Wouldn't it be grand to mount stained glass in the back that would emulate a beautiful sunrise with these silhouettes? Come to think of it, I have some old window sashes up in the attic and a perfect piece of glass.
Fortunately, Rusty Birds will also be at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show and they also sell via mail order.
These came home with me.
As did one of these along with a set of spruce trees.
This dinosaur skeleton, jointed so that it can gently sway in the breeze was already sold. Notice the three-staked garden lamps. With a hurricane lamp inside these would be even more stunning!
This guy was tempting.
Every dragon hunter needs a trophy, right?
What garden wouldn't look better with a pterodactyl skeleton soaring above it? The flying raven on the right will be living in my garden.
Whoo wouldn't like a wise old owl?
Okay, iron is a heavy metal but not as dense as, say, lead, so these pieces are are actually pretty light. However, they are heavy in both senses cited in the Urban Dictionary. These are different from other uses meaning grave or somber (The news of the disaster was really heavy.) or the noun usage (The principal was a real heavy for expelling the student.) Of course food being heavy usually means that it's rather rich and filling. Then there's the whole heavy metal music genre and we don't want to talk about the numbers that appear on the bathroom scale. Gee, one word, so many uses. Ain't language fun?
Anyway, these creations are cool. (not a temperature observation.)
