Where do broken tools, rollerskates and boards go to finish their time on earth? At Eliza's place many of them ended up leaning against or hanging on her exterior garage wall. Old metal clamp-on rollerskates, probably from the 1920's, hung alongside broken rakes, odd lengths of chain, pitchforks and bridle bits to suffer the whims of nature and rust. Loose used redwood boards were treated with great respect. The nails were removed and the boards stood on end. They mingled with the rusted items while gathering a bleached, weathered patina. It was nice to see these interesting items arranged so lovingly and artfully.
