Now That's A Big One

 
Along a small country highway just outside of the city, is a small family run business. 
A one-of-a-kind store, specializing in  whimsical metal garden accessories,
home décor and genuine Amish furniture.
 
 
 An 8 foot tall rooster, as well as many other metal sculptures,
 catch the eye as you drive by.
 


I've never been inside, but it's on the to do list, the next time we are in the area.
I'll let you know if we can get that rooster on the top of car!

LOL.

Reminds me of that Mr. Rooster that my husband welded back together for a friend a few years back.....huge, hilarious and we're still laughing about how it almost didn't fit in the van...........the husband said "I must really love my wife to put up with this monstrosity."

Bwuahahahahaha.

You would need quite a big garden to accommodate that rooster.

Lisa Gordon said...

These are such unique works of art, Karen.
I wonder what my neighbors would think if that 8-foot rooster showed up on my front lawn???? :-)

I like lawn ornaments but an 8ft rooster might scare my birds away.. I would love to go thru this store, fun photos. Have a happy week!

Those sculptures are a lot of fun - and the one who created them must be very creative! I can take photos but I think I missed out on all the creativity that it would take to create those!!

I would have to stop and take a look and hope that grandson was in the car with me. Unforgettable.

What a fun collection!

Robyn said...

Karen,
I have to admit this rooster makes me laugh.

North Dakota has an Enchanted Highway featuring scrap metal sculptures. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enchanted_Highway). It's an interesting sight.

Rambling Woods said...

Oh cool!

Linda said...

I've seen metal sculptures but nothing as cheerful as these!

Me said...

No, we are not bringing home an 8 ft. rooster! Did I stop the car so you could take these or did you get them as we drove by?
