Someone who comes to my altered book workshops brought me a metal 'G' that she had found in her garden. Her chickens had scratched it up out of the earth...clever chickens! Cheesy

I was determined to create something for myself around it and so this was born from a mini-drawer Smiley

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Any ideas as to what the G came from? Those chickens might be handy to have, instead of metal detectors. Great piece. Smiley

Thanks! No, no clue, but it's obviously been in the earth a long time because of how the metal has corroded.
