Moving Yard Art

I really enjoy movement in my yard. I have several yard art pieces that move in the wind. These old turbines mounted on iron stands are some of my favorites. I have three of them thanks to James. They have wonderful patinas of rust, green and weathered galvanized metal. Salvaged items can make the most interesting art.
Do you have anything in your yard that is made from salvage?

I too just love salvage rusty old found stuff in the garden! The opening page of my blog Vintage Garden Home.blogspot.com is an old frame from a gas tank which I put a broken little bird bath on. I smile each time I see it, and it is truly art in the garden. All Happy Days!! Meg

I really like the turbine. I would love one in my yard too(-: I have an old cat fan blade. The thing is so heavy it takes two people to lift it almost! Anyhow I am going to beg my dad or brother to weld it to a pole so I can stand it in my garden. It will look like a giant sunflower. It even has rusty yellow paint(-:

Those are very nice and so pretty when they spin.
