Hammer Time


click on pic for a close-up!

I picked up this giant hammer at the flea market this weekend, it is an old advertisement from a hardware store. I have a weakness for this type of advertising, I have a giant pair of eyeglasses in the garden and an enormous fork in the dining room. I would love to find a huge shoe for our foyer.

I drool every single time I see that Church Bulletin watchamajigger cabinet. You are brilliant, Linda C!

Were you there? Where was I?

Ditto on the church bulletin cabinet. I can only imagine how heavy that hammer must be.

Joan- Your booth had been abandoned, Lulu and I doddled around waiting for you. I also couldn't find our friends Sandy and Joe!

A giant ANYTHING is fun. But giant eyeglasses would always make me think of F. Scott Fitzgerald's book The Great Gatsby. The English teacher in me cannot ignore symbolism.
