Merry Christmas MashUp

I have just read Jonathon Green‘s fascinating post from earlier in the week, having been out very late at a party. What I write may not make too much sense, so I’m sticking mainly to photographs today. My suggestion is that guns should never be used for shooting again, but instead recycled into…

Chairs:

Umbrellas:

Mugs: 

And you are invited to suggest alternative uses.

Meantime, I would like to take this opportunity to wish Dabblers the world over a Merry Christmas and a very Peaceful New Year.

Here’s a celebratory retro mashup by Matthijs Viot:

  1. Oooh I covet one of those umbrellas! Very cool, although I’d be perfectly happy with a sword-stick too. Basically anything that is both an umbrella and a weapon is to be applauded

    Merry Christmas to you Susan!

  2. According to a metal plater in Kensington (Maryland), some number of Civil War cannon were melted down and cast into doorknobs for the White House. He knew this because the knobs had been replaced and put into storage; more recently someone had found them and had sent them to him to be cleanup for use again.

  3. There is a quite spectacular selection of furniture made out of weaponry in the Museum of the Military, Istanbul. Gifts to various Sultans I believe. Worth a visit if you are ever in the city.

  4. I’ve no idea how they manage to do those mash-ups – very clever. Spending hours and hours to create something completely pointless is noble, however.

  5. Doorknobs from George and furniture from Daniel K – the alternative uses for ‘weaponry’ seem to be functional. Istanbul is on my list of places to visit in 2013, Daniel – so will look out for that museum.

    Yes, Brit – though not sure about ‘noble’!

    Have a great Christmas!
