Hinger Bread Men?

Right side up or upside down
I'm the tastiest treat in town
Try to catch me if you can
But you can't catch me
I'm the "hinge"r bread man!

These were tucked away on a back corner gate in the Madrona neighborhood and the cleverness of the metal artist who created them made me smile. That rusty patina does suggest a mix of ginger and cinnamon. Yum! But don't break your teeth on these :-)

You find the most amazing things. Just love that someone has made something that could be boringly practical, such fun. Great you found it and took the shot. Love the texture of wall and that old gate.

I just love them. They are so cute. I just came over because I saw you listed on Tash's site and she listed you as a Southern California ex-pat. We moved to BC last year from Pomona, but I grew up in Compton. I drove through Seattle today heading down to Oregon for a USC basketball game. Seattle was packed with cars. It's much quieter where I am north of the border. - Margy
