OK. I have to admit I am now buying totally miscellaneous objects from the flea market that I do not have any plans for...but I just couldn't resist this awesome pulley!
George and I had talked about buying a pulley to put a bird feeder on, but now that we actually have the pulley, I am not so sure. I think it might just be easier to hang the bird feeder directly off the porch. For now, the pulley might just have to live on this weird piece of metal protruding from the bricks. That way I can see it all the time.
Here is a close up. I am such a sucker for pieces that have both metal and wood...especially beautiful worn wood with cracks in it!
