Weird & Wonderful Yard Art

This time of year, it's fun to take a drive and look at holiday decorations.  We were out early so it was before the lights are turned on but we found some very cool and interesting things.  Lots of people have yard art that they decorate with lights, wreaths and ornaments.  There is one house that stands out among all other houses we saw.  I believe these people collect every relic I ever saw in my childhood and find a spot in what has become a sort of 'statue garden' for their neighborhood.  A picture is better than 1000 words, so I'll just leave you with some photos I took.  If you're ever in Milwaukee, this is along Lake Drive near Layton.
The tractor driver has a santa hat, and the toy soldiers stand watch at the front door

Those are all the characters from McDonald's playland
of yesteryear

Now you know what to do with old
bowling balls and traffic lights
Jaws and a gas pump

Yes, that really is a car!
Who doesn't need an old LP tank turned pink pig?
The hamburglar is after the biker!
