One of the blogs we love to check into is Anonymous Works, which features creative, often odd works made by anonymous souls, that are for sale at various sites. Many of its images, like this basket made by cutting and twisting a paint can, make us go “Wow, a human being made that!” and tap into the wonder of an astonishing object whose story remains a mystery…

…like this tea pot made out of a Wolf’s Head Motor Oil can from the 1930’s (dig the lid’s handle)…

…it reminds of the Maxwell House Coffee can pot Louise Randolph’s great aunt Eva made during WWII, and the big story behind it…
