Nails... and tough as

Was just going through my photos and thought I'd post a few from the archives that I never got around to posting last year. These are dated railroad nails on the old railway near our property in the Southeast corner of Arizona. The railroad was used during the height of the copper mining days here and has been since abandoned. I even found some china pieces on the railroad bed that were discarded from the dining car apparently. I'm ever on the lookout for good tidbits.

This is a remnant of someone's inappropriate footwear on the migrant trail near our house.
I hope she had better shoes to make the trek. An unknown story here.

Tough as nails Cory, I get to live with this guy!

And these were tough as nails to finish off for some reason.
I was trying some new things that branched off from my bangles process.
I swear they took me all afternoon to make...must be because I'm trying something new.

We had the most rainy day I have ever seen here in the high desert yesterday.
It was kind of nice to hunker down and be cozy, watch movies and eat popcorn
packing up parcels to send out for the holidays.
The countdown is on for our India trip, just a mere 17 days!
