This summer I picked up some beautiful old fireplace guards at a garage sale. The guy had a pair of brass guards and one that was cast iron. I bought all three... a package deal! I had originally thought I would use them on the corners of my flowerbeds to keep the water hose from dragging through the flowers, but then I had a bright idea and placed them at the corners of my back steps.(notice all the leaves...it's beginning to look a little like fall)
The one to the left stands among my heart rocks.
They have a nice design...not too ornate, just simple good looks. They're handsome.
They have little feet...
...and lots of character!
Tell me if you can relate to this... I knew the moment I saw these that I wanted them. I didn't know for sure what I was going to do with them, but I knew I wanted them.
It's fun to take a traditional item and find an entirely new purpose for it.
Fireplace guards turned door greeters...you never know what life has in store for you.
