Tin Cans and Rust! (photo Friday)

Time's corrosive dewdrop eats

     The giant warrior to a crust

     Of earth in earth and rust in rust.

                      Francis Turner Palgrave

Like all good things in life

there comes a time

where they are no longer needed.

They are packed up and put on a shelf

and replaced by something new

something different. They may return.

This will be my final

 Photo Friday.

It has been a pleasure to share but

to everything there comes a time. Thank you.



  1. Well I LOVE those honey cans/jars. Very cool.

  2. you do know that if the American Pickers come by and see those cans, they will be offering you money for them!!

    Don't watch Canadian Pickers, so not sure what they like.....


  3. I was going to say the same thing as Gill. Love those cans!

  4. Hey Gill and Jill (that would make a good song) these are not my cans I seen them at an auction and loved them. They were full of nails, nuts and bolts there was so many of them it was very cool. B

  5. Bee Lady I thought you might :) B

  14. Thanks for your kind comments! I ended up going all the way back to the end of September, and I enjoyed the photos very much! I have to admit that I do not read a lot of the words, but you have lots of photos, so I will be coming back!!
    You are somewhere in my neck of the woods! I am in Kanata, the western part of Ottawa.

  15. I'll trade you a riddle for that great poem....nice pictures.:)

    This thing all things devours:
    Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
    Gnaws iron, bites steel;
    Grinds hard stones to meal;
    Slays king, ruins town,
    And beats high mountain down.

    - Tolkien

  16. Well, at least you went out with a bang! : ) Just so you don't stop completely. I like the one with the cogs (or whatever).

  17. Great design layout on the honey!
