I swore to myself...and Pam...that I wasn't going to do it. Wasn't going to leave a piece rusting while we're on vacation. Didn't want to over tax a rusty bit. They were all going to have nice little break too.
However, the temptation to do so and my own curiosity were just too strong to resist.
A 60" x 72" piece of cotton, that soaked most of the afternoon, was just bundled up around a gorgeously rusted, heavy as can be, single circle of iron.
The very same one, in fact, that produced the lovely circles on the right above. It's currently resting comfortably in a bag by the window where it can soak up some sun. Not sure if that really has any effect, but it's a good resting place. After all, that rusty circle is going to be working pretty hard until we return.
Now...back to packing!
