I think in some way, machinery gears & components look like art!  This may seem like a strange statement, but they really are kind of beautiful.  Look at this arrangement found in Spring Cottage Magazine (The Cottage Journal).  The spring 2012 issue shows rusty scrap iron in a fun display.

They draw the eye & cause curious speculation of their origin.  Am I right?  Regardless, some can make great candle holders!

The big one is my favorite.  It is more elaborate.  The odd thing is, these candles fit perfectly.  They only went in so far & didn't fall through the bottom either.  Wah-lah!

  1. What a unique way to use gears. I know exactly what to use as table decor for my uncle's next birthday!

  2. These candle holders are fantastic, what a clever idea. You are a girl after my own heart. I'm so glad that I found you. We have a lot in common. I absolutely love to find a yard sale,thrift store, etc. item and turn it around into a can't live without treasure. There is the fun of the hunt, but even better, the process of the transformation.
