DH found this in the garage (where things that might come in handy are stored) and brought it in to the house. It may be old and rusty but it comes in very handy for opening bottles and it brings back memories too.
Here's another old and rusty item, which must have been very useful to someone at sometime. It's useful as an ornament on the dresser now. It will 'last' for ages.
This horseshoe, which was in the garden when we bought the house, is still very useful in that it catches all the good luck that passes by! It lives in the greenhouse.
