I love folk/tramp art!
I especially love this piece because it was made by my late
father-in-law, Rudy Hajek.
It was this piece of tin can art that got me interested in
searching out other pieces.
Can you imagine making all those cuts.....out of cans?
And.......he made several of these.
This piece I found at an estate sale, it is an old flue cover.
A bit rusty but not without a certain charm.
I like the different colored metals together.
I started hanging old chippy mirrors and frames in here,
the powder room,
Along with other pieces of chipped up "treasure"
We realized it reminded us of the Weasleys house, because nothing will stay put,
( it's next to stairs) and we are forever tilting and straightening.
It is a very small room and the wallpaper and floor to ceiling frames and mirrors
(all tilting and a bit wonky) makes it seem very tall and well, CROOKED and WONKY!
So now we call it "The Burrow".
We are still on the lookout for other pieces of tin can folk art to fill in some of the other empty frames.
How do you decorate your home? Do you care what others think?
Or do you just have fun and do what makes you happy?
