Repurposed / Upcycled Silverplate & Brass Mystery!

Hey folks!  I posted the title as a mystery because I wanted the "name" of this piece to be determined by the future owner.  At a quick glance you can probably think of at least a couple of uses for this creation.  I can think of about 5, but I'm not telling!  Sometimes it's best not to define a creation as not to interfere with the purpose someone else might give a piece.   

So here it is!  What do you think it could be used for?  Scroll down to see an ADDED SURPRISE!....

THE TOP SPINS!!!!!

Repurposed / Upcycled Vintage Water Ski Custom Fish on a Stringer

Hello there!  Because I'm sometimes addicted to working with vintage water skis, I've completed yet another set of creations with the fish theme.

This awesome group of fish should tie me over for just a little while with my craving to work with vintage skis.  This is a set of eight different, custom fish.  All with rustic edges and carved detailing.  They are all hung from a heat-treated metal fish stringer to bring out some age and color in the metal.  

The longest fish measures 21" long.

These fish are ready to be seen and purchased at Timeline Antiques & Collectible Mall in Shreveport or in my Etsy shop (HERE).

Repurposed Vintage Water Ski Fish Glass Shelf & Accessories!

Summer is heating up down here in North Louisiana.  I've been messing with different items to create various creations lately.  Very recently, I just had to work up another repurposed vintage water fish wall rack.

My friend, Randy, gifted me a couple of vintage bathroom accessory sets.  And this fish creation features one of the original, vintage sets!  I love the elements and especially the green tinted thick glass shelf.  Here it is!  You can see it in person at Timeline Antiques Mall here in Shreveport, LA (HERE) or in my Etsy shop (HERE).

Measurements:  48" wide; 10" tall at fins; 5.75" deep at glass.
