Nail Art ...

No, not what you are thinking ... but this.


As we continued our trek through Alabama, we stopped here.
Look at the nail line up.
Can you imagine the person that did this?
Such precision.
Rows and Rows.
Pride in Workmanship.
This person must be an artist.

You will never guess.

This was the inside of one of the oldest remaining log jails, circa 1868, in Alabama..
To keep the prisoners from sawing their way out,
the wood beams were lined with nails.


You know me by now.
And how I am moved by history and the art of day to day life.

What I find most interesting is that this place, meant to house those who were to be put away, there was still a pride in workmanship.



It's what draws me to the artisans of today.
Those that still take pride in their work.
Because, guess what, if you are lucky enough ... someone might have the opportunity to see your work in about 200 years.


What will your legacy be?  

Making the World More Beautiful.  One Day at a Time.
