I've taken inspiration from the fun I had venturing into the washing machine drum and experimenting with metal. So be on the look out for all things metal or metallic; whether they be shiny, dull, rusty, damaged, beaten, shaped... you name it!
Remember, the rules are:
1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. All images must be taken after the theme is announced.
3. The challenge runs from 8pm on the Sunday and runs until 8pm the following Sunday.
4. Only one upload per member.
5. Please feel free to comment on the entries once judging is complete.
6. The person who hosts is the judge for that week challenge and the judge’s decision is final.
7. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week.
8. Have fun!!!

I'm 'steeling' myself in readiness and hoping I don't 'buckle' under the pressure! 😂

Damn - a few months ago, and still at work, I'd have had some mercury to play with.

I remember playing with this a lot, wiping gold rings in it, to briefly make them silver, etc.. without knowing how somewhat “poisonous” it is....!

Not killed me yet though...I think...Tongue

Went to the doctor and as he was treating me, he said, "Mercury's rising in Uranus".
I said, "Doc, I want a medical diagnosis, not a horoscope reading!"
"I know", he replied, "It's just that the thermometer broke after I inserted it".

I'll get my coat...

well not mercury but I've got a picture uploaded....

From Google on mercury.

Elemental mercury toxicity (which usually occurs in the vaporized form) can cause:
mood swings, nervousness, irritability, and other emotional changes,
headache,

Now that's got me thinking..... WinkBlushGrin

That's mine in for this week.

Earlier this week I decided to buy some new furniture for the bathroom, one of which is flat-pack. Perhaps controversially, I'm a big fan of assembling flat-pack but I haven't had opportunity to do any for a long while. So I'm looking forward to doing this one.

I have long been fascinated by the ingenuity and engineering involved in these little cam fittings. So here are some for you to admire and enjoy with me. But don't worry - I'm not about to ask for any assistance!!! Grin

I really hate picking a winner. Another close contest with several worthy winners. However there can only be one, and this week the batton is handed to Malc. A lovely little shot and I have now added a new word to my vocabulary.

Well done Malc - some lovely detail there.

And thanks for hosting Isobel - glad I wasn't judging cos I honestly don't know which one I'd have chosen! 🤔 Particularly tough choice this week IMHO.
