Repurposed Business Card Holder & Candy Dish

I recently ran across some old metal skates and had an idea for this business card holder and candy dish creation (or whatever else might come to mind).  I remember having skates like this when I was young.  And some road rash on the knees also!  

Some hardcore tintoy fans might recognize "Rodeo Joe" from the Rodeo Joe windup jeep/tractor.  I cannibalized him from some broken parts of the original toy that was in bad shape.  The long tray was actually taken from a large bread baking tray that had about 5 or six of them connected.  The rest is a vintage Singer Sewing yardstick and some metal filigree from an old tissue box cover.

So the art of repurposing has allowed Rodeo Joe to take one more ride!
