Photo Holder

I picked up a couple unusual  items yesterday at an estate sale. I didn't know what they were but they spoke to me so I brought them home. 

 I did a little research and found out they are vintage Atkins Co. cast iron raker gauges. So now I know what they are but I don't think I have the need for cast iron raker gauges so I had to figure out what to do with them. I had also picked up some lovely vintage photo's at the sale and thought I would try to pair them up with the raker gauges. Here is what I came up with:

I kind of like it. What do you think?

  1. Great way to use these interesting pieces! I love when creative people like you come up with stuff like this.

  2. Love it - especially with the last photo!

  3. Love those. I never would have guessed that's what they were for.

  4. Yes, I like it too. It's always good to find new uses for old things.
