Hunting & Gathering

While on our walk this morning my husband and I stumbled upon a treasure. 

(I still need to wash it off) 
We rushed home to borrow our neighbor's wheel barrel and wheeled it directly into our backyard where it found the perfect spot!

This is the enclosure we built out of corrugated metal to hide our garbage cans.  I want to hang the abalone shells all along the top edge and then drape it with white lights for some coastal Christmas charm.

They say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I love it! The colors, the rust, the banacles!(ok, no barnacles, just mollusk shells!) What a story it could tell.

Is it a tire with shells? I can't really tell. Did you find all those abalone shells as well? Certainly no. How lucky your neighbor was willing to share his wheelbarrow - that's some good garbage picin' friend!

Okay, so what is it exactly? Good thing it was there when you returned.

ditto ditto...what is it, besides intriguing and a good addition to the yard?

I know!!! What is it? I don't have a clue though my husband thinks it hung on the side of a boat, maybe a bumper or something. I was really hoping that Rita or her DB would know. Now I'm really curious.
I think I better add to my post, "Please if anyone knows what this is, please tell me!!

Now I'm not so embarrassed! I was reading the post wondering what on earth it was/is. I guess I'm not alone. But, I love it!!!
You are too funny...that's why we all love you.
