Celtic Knot in Iron by Scottish Lion

Celtic Knot in Iron adorning a mail box 
This beautiful Celtic knot was created in iron and also the
number" 13 "and bracket. Andy Leck ,Scottish Lion hammered these curls and shaped this design.
The house in the background is lovely too! A Maine Cape with Federal style trim. A classic in this neighborhood. Those are wonderfully kept wooden shutters painted a classic green. My hubby with his New England fishermen accent calls this green,"ma larky" green. Huh???
He has a dialect that is slowly disappearing. Our old connection to England  has been replaced with a "Cosmopolitan" dialect.
When we leave Maine and go to Pa,MD or Va  to do shows it really stands out and folks have a hard time sometimes understanding him. Sometimes I even have to translate.
Hee hee!
