Definitely unique! Have a good day.
Wow, that is unique, and now you've inspired me!Amongst the 'older folk' I made friends with in my childhood were bachelor brothers who lived out in the country. Normally they didn't like people to poke around their very unique property but they took to me and let my family and I explore their huge collection of ship's bells and chains, as well as windmills. We all looked forward to visiting them when we took our Sunday drives.The brothers are no longer with us but their bells and chains are still there...so when the weather improves I think I'll head over to take some pictures!
Very cool. I love to find things like that traveling around.
het zal wel met zijn werk te maken gehad hebben.
interesting indeed. glad you found it to share with us. ( :
That is interesting!xo C
It was esthetic in itself -- a unique use of an old drill bit. Thanks for identifying it -- I never saw one before.
That is quite a fence!
Nice pictures you show of a fence. Hanne Bente
that's really creativein the long view shot I thought they looked a bit like armor from the middle ages
Morning Tex that is a very cool idea. My Hero has used well drills to make fence they surround the farm and still make me think he is very smart and so is this inventor. Hug B
LOL! That's all Texas there!! Cool shots. blessings ~ tanna
Well that certainly is an interesting corner piece.
Very nice pictures :)
That is a real cool fence there Tex.what a brilliant idea some rigger has had.or maybe not.put sure put to good use.nice shotval
What is it/are they, T? I've been staring at the picture and for the life of me cannot figure it out...:)JP
Fancy finding that.
I would never have known what it was if you hadn't told me. Interesting indeed! :-)
oh wow!!... definitely unique!
Very different! lol
Very interesting! I wouldn't have had a clue as to what they were.
How odd. Def a one off. Have a terrific Thursday.Best wishes Molly
How interesting!! Have a good one!!
Ludzie to mają pomysły :)People that are sometimes crazy ideas :) but interesting. Yours.
They are really unique! Great finding :)
I'm glad you said what it was - I had no clue!
Yep, unique. I couldn't figure out what the secons one was...then I read it. LOL
Pretty cool...you are very observant.. I might never have noticed what they were.xo
i sat here hurting my brain trying to figure out what it is and then realized you wrote it down.. cool
Thats cool and a good way to "repurpose".
Well, how about that! :)
Indeed very unique - this is a new application for used oil well drill bits :)
Hi Tex, A drill bit on a fence post ... now that is just pretty cool! Have a great day! John
What a cool fence!Makes me wonder if they have an oilwell on their property.
Very nice oak tree, love the photocool fence too Theresa
Yep, looks like Texas to me!!!
Creative use of one's surroundings.. yup, looks like Texas to me! Cool-ness! -Tammy
Those oilmen keep everything! :)
Wow, how neat, that is differant......Blessings Francine.
we actually have one of those. when I met Marc he was working at Hughes Tool. his job was to drill a hole in a drill bit that was later, in the production line, filled with something (oil? ball bearings?) and sealed up. when he quit he lugged an old useless drill bit home with him.but what I was thinking of was that when they first started to gentrify my neighborhood in the city I thought I would go around and photograph all the old chain link fence gate and pole ornaments but I never did and now I'm really sorry.
What a idea to use it for that...great notice of you and show us
Those are so cool....It amazes me how people think of these ideas and put their plan into action....I never would have thought of that....
I think I'm more impressed that you knew what they were than that they were used for fence adornments in the first place. :)
Ya use whatever ya got!
A good use of the drilling bit. Also a great conversation piece!
You really don't see those everywhere!
At first I looked and wondered how to enlarge the photo, then I saw you had done a close up - I'm sure glad you said what it was!It is cool looking, I will say that!
That is really awesome looking post of the fence..
Well, it is oil country. Makes sense! But definitely unique.
Some people would consider that art--I think it's creative!! I hope you're doing well, and your year is off to a good start!
Great stuff - well spotted ;)
Very creative...unique too!!!
I've never seen anything like it.
Interesting, glad someone new original use, another item repurposed into something unique.
Hi Theresa.. thanks for spotting those. It would be neat to learn the story behind them. Referring to the previous post, just a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed beauty :) And.. news story last night about people with more fat living longer.. maybe that squirrel is on to something :)
I've seen those up here... I think Texas and Alberta must have the same mind set in some things:))
Heh. I was trying to decide if they were shell sculptures. Shows you what I know...I think you can respond to my comments again. At least someone did yesterday.
Very cool! - and I'm glad you clued me in because I did NOT know what I was looking at :-)
This is a good use for the old, probably worn out drill bits. A fine subject and very interesting post.
LOL - only in Texas!
The fun thing is, they had to purposefully think about how to attach those on - somewhere a grandpa artist is tinkering in a barn with a welder... :)Happy new seasons to you ;)
T, definitely an interesting use of the old junk!
Well, I like it and am sure glad you posted a close up.
Hey, I recognize this adornment. We have them on fences here. We usually don't wear drill bits down this far.
How fitting for Texas : )
Probably the funkiest post i have ever seen. I bet your cant buy them at any old corner shop.
Must be a TX thing.
very interesting. Thanks for sharing.
I used to work for a company that supplied pipe caps and thread protectors to the oil industry and always thought those items would make great planters, but what a unique use for drill bits!
Pretty substantial and unique as well! Nice find.Happy New Year my friend! :)
Yup, very unique. I've never seen anything like it. I wouldn't have known what it was if you hadn't said.
At first, I couldn't imagine what they were. The first thing that popped into my mind was "Black Gold, Texas T". Barbed wire too, they must not want 'visitors'.
Nice pictures of a fence!!Dimi..
Wonderful to see... and you have reminded me I still haven't taken a picture of the "Texas" gate I see on my way to work.
I would have never known what they were so, I am glad you told us. They do seem appropriate for Texas. Have a great evening!
Don't care for them myself but they are different used in this way.
Now that is cool - what better to do with old drill bits!
Well that's taking recycling to a new and attractive level.
Oil well drill bits - why I never...
Well ya gotta give'em a A for trying...not my favorite adornment for a fence. thanks for sharing!!
Guess we know the family business:@)
That's just pure Texas! Love it.
I was wondering what those were. Very unique.
Neat, it is always interesting how things can be used in new and different ways. I enjoyed my visit to your blog.
i wouldn't have known what they were if you hadn't told us. probably common sight in texas though. creative way of re-purposing them!
Industrial sculpture !
Wonderful.Even the silver paint could not keep away the rust.
Unique yes . . . Love the pewter like color!
Now those are unique. I am going to have a closer look ar posts. MB
Very cool. I never would have guessed!
Ha - now that's very unique!
Wow! That is so unique and nice to see those old pieces being repurposed.
Wow, really?! That is really something. Makes for an interesting decoration.

I like this!
Now that's different.
Very cool. I Like it.. I Like it a lot..Hugs~
I guess it is safe to say a driller lives there!Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com
I'm glad you knew what these are, because I sure didn't. I was gonna guess something much different.
I wondered what that was! Neat!!
I love it, what a wonderful discovery! I bet your local paper would be tickled by your fancy fence find. :)Recycled and re-purposed.Happy New Year!!!
These are indeed unique.
LOL I stared and stared at your photos... then I saw the words drill bits ...Oil well drill bits! I should have known !I kept trying to figure out what those were on the fence posts. They look cool-KAT-
Dearest Theresa,That is quite unique for Texas to recycle oil well drill bits. Looks good too.Hugs to you,Mariette
Really unusual post topper. Something to talk about for sure.
Very cool fence... I guess you use what you have!
would anyone come and steal oil?
Those things are so boring!!!(if you see what I mean!)Stewart M - Melbourne
What a great ornaments!Nice that you noticed as well
I am always tickled when folks find a way to recycle. They have put these to good use!
This is very different and strong enough! Well used the tools
yep, that's a new one!
That ol' drill bit was probably pretty pricey in its day.
I'm glad you told us what it was 'cause I'd have never known! Pretty cool!! :)
Well, I never would have guessed what it was...very clever!
wow...pretty cool!!! those bumpy caps remind me of acorns!!nice find!!
yep! pretty cool and unique too!
I am glad you said what it was. I had no idea.
Oh yes, really unusual! By the way, as I saw this fence, I remembered of a picture from a fence made of/(with? I don't know the right preposition) skis. Every country its own fence :-)GreetingsAngela
This is definitely an art, Theresa.
I've never seen that before, although it doesn't surprise me for Texas. Very unique!
That's totally eery...as I was scrolling and squinting, I was like "what is that?"....and there at the end you answered....oil drill bits ;)
