Good Morning! It's FRIDAY! I hope your Friday is a happy one! This week in my hometown we have an event called Antique Alley. It goes up and down a road in our city for MILES! On Wednesday, I took my nieces to school and there were a few people already set up. It normally doesn't start until Thursday, but these guys had a jump on things!
I found the dinner bell above. It is HEAVY! Cast iron! The bell is amazingly clear and LOUD! The only thing... well someone had painted it and it was ugly.
Yeah, I thought so too.
Well, it was only $5 so I brought it home with me, knowing I could do something about the paint and make it look as it should.
I took some black paint and painted over the rooster. It worked very well and the paint just seeped into the cast iron so it didn't look like I just painted it. It looked old, like it should!
The bell now resides on our back deck.
I look forward to ringing it for supper time. It is so loud that you may hear it from your house. I usually cook a little extra... just in case you are inclined to stop by.
Have a great day friends!
