Cast Iron

The hubs and I are romantic saps when it comes to traditions and every year we exchange the customary anniversary gifts. There were concert tickets for our paper first year, egyptian cotton sheets for our second anniversary and so forth. However we were both stumped when it came to picking out something for our iron anniversary. We could have gone the standard route and purchased cast iron cookware, but I was randomly searching one day and came across this cast iron statue. 


It's perfect!

Backstory: last summer the hubs came home and proclaimed, "I think we should have gargoyles made modeled after Jax and Jewels. Wouldn't it be awesome to see Jewels as an evil gargoyle?"

After pricing out said statues I told the hubs that such a purchase would have to come out of his personal savings account.  When I found this little, yet heavy, guy I thought it was a perfect compromise.




Although, now the custom gargoyles idea has been brought up again!  Honestly, who could think of Jax as an angry gargoyle? There isn't a mean bone in his body.


On another note, I can't even imagine the weight of a life-size statue of Jax! That would be a exceptionally heavy garden gnome.  Honestly, this thing looks just like Jewels, but she wanted nothing to do with posing next to it. 

What do you think? Should I tell the hubs to put in an order for gargoyle statues? Or would that take our Boston obsession a tad too far?
