You gotta love the tin man, with his sardine can feet. He is about 2 feet tall. The hat is a plastic funnel and the cans as you can see, are different sizes. the constuction is pretty simple but really creative. Oh, and some bottle caps and wooden heart, of course.

I would hang or place him back on one of my woods paths (next to or above an old tree stump that I placed an old hatchet in) in a "heart"beat....fabulous unexpected whimsy on a garden path...good find K....k
