horseshoes are used as talismans of good fortune. Some say that they should be hung with the ends up so that all the luck will be contained, though others feel that hanging them upside-down like this allows all the 'luck' to pour down on those underneath. by rentedochan
old steel horseshoes - cute - I bet Victoria and Austin would love these! just old steel horseshoes, then buffed up on a wire brush on a bench grinder then heated up and melted candle wax brushed on the heat seems to draw the wax into the steel. They're hung on a rope made from twisted wire.
I think I will have to make this one to add to my bird houses in the garden. Need to go thru the hubbies farrier stuff.
