The Tin Man

Who knew that the tin man and his dog live just a few blocks away? I didn't know until this month.






The Tin Man and his faithful pooch live in front of a garage, and are made mostly of mufflers.

“Carved mouths that can’t talk, painted eyes that can’t see, Tin ears that can’t hear, molded noses that can’t smell, Hands that can’t grasp, feet that can’t walk or run, throats that never utter a sound.”

Psalm 115

You have the most fascinating things around you. This is so neat. Somebody is very talented to make all those mufflers look like a man and his dog. Love the tongue sticking out on the dog

That is so cool! I love art made from recycled material! Whoever made this must be a very creative and interesting person! Wouldn't you like to meet him! I know I would! Or HER!

Hi Ginny,
We have a tin man in a town about 30 miles from us. Instead of a dog, he has a pet pig. It is funny because the owners dress him for the seasons. ;-)
I will be taking an Easter Blog break.
Wishing you a wonderful Easter week!
Love, Carla

Oh, wow, wish I could make one for Lorelei's mom! She dressed as the Tin Man one year for Halloween for something at school. Her and her dad did it and it was sooooo good...I didn't get a pic before she left and forever after regretted it cause she had taken it off before she got home.

Someone has gone to a lot of work to make that. It is certainly interning and one of a kind.
