My Gramps loved different brass hooks and used them all over his house to hang things like pictures, and lots of other things too.
A few years ago I drove a load of stuff from Minnesota back to our house in Texas and one of the boxes had some of Gramps hooks. Since then they have sat in a drawer. I really wanted to get them out and use them, but it took me a while to figure out what I was going to use them for.
It turns out I don’t really need to use them, I can just display them and enjoy looking at them.
Gramps was really into eagles and had several eagle hooks, but there were a few other interesting hooks, do I tried to come up with a way to mix them up and display them all together.
I divided them up and hung them on small strips of wall between a few doors in our kitchen. I think they look great – aside from the lowest hook in the first photo. I need to take that one down, bend it a bit and put it back up.
The interesting masks with the long noses came from Mexico or another country further south. Gramps took many trips south of the border starting in the 1920’s.
I am glad these are finally out of the drawer and up were I can see and enjoy them. It’s about time!
Do you have any interesting hooks that you use or display?
