They say one man's trash is another man's treasure, which explains how Dog The Bounty Hunter is still on the air. Taking trashed crap and making treasurable home accessories: Starling Ink. Operating out of a workshop in (historic?) Barrington, SI scours scrap yards in order to craft quirky home items out of old car parts and other metallic trash -- nice to see someone was able to find a use for St. Anger. Junk-works include table lamps made from old flashlights and wall sconces crafted from glass insulators and hubcabs, plus car-based clocks, bashed out of stuff like a polished chrome valve cover from a Chevy engine, to streamlined rocket hood ornaments from early '50s whips, to vintage hub caps including a late '60s avocado-colored job from Chevy trucks (sooo...Like a Clock?). They're also doing outdoor works like paint cans converted into sufficiently freaky face-shaped bird houses (with entry holes as the mouth and garish eyes and noses bolted on), and also old-school deep dish hubcaps hung horizontally as bird feeders, even though for Larry, that's normally "McDonald's", as long as he makes the off the backboard, off the blimp, off sauced Tommy Heinsohn, nothing-but-net shot. Because
they have lots of soup cans apparently it's the holidays, they're also doing some painted wreaths comprised of eight or so large cans, much better than the two attached to Mrs. Dog that accompany him on every bust.
