Another item added

…to my lost brake pad collection.

My husband spotted this one in a parking lot in Bryn Mawr, PA, on July 23.

It’s just a little baby! Here it is on its own:

And here it is with the rest of the gang. It’s the one on the lower left. Now you see how small it is in comparison with the others.

You may wonder how we come across these items. Well, we walk a lot, and over time we have realized there are places where these guys seem to find themselves. Look along the edges of parking lots (that don’t get swept a lot) or along the curb in busy roads where lots of trucks go (because I think trucks seem to lose them more than cars, but I could be wrong).

If you want to know more about this collection (and of course you do)… Look here.

  1. An alarming collection. Hope all those vehicles – and their drivers! – got to their destinations in good shape. None the worse for wear, so to speak.

  2. I get a kick out of the artful brake collection!

    • Thank you. It’s crazy but for some reason I really like these things and I get so excited when I find a new one. The collection grows slowly but each item is cherished!
