Anybody Out There Creative?

While exploring along the railroad tracks in south Caddo parish yesterday, Steve picked up these railroad spikes for me. 

What in the world can I do with them?  Where are my creative people?  Any ideas?

About 30 years ago, I think I had a few ties sand-blasted by an uncle. They look cool, but not greatly function. Maybe a paper-weight on the school desk.
Or something to throw at the teenager when needed.

If you have a graden you could use them as markers. Or be artsy and and fasten them to a 2 x 4 and put it on display in your home.

LOL! I'm googling "graden" but now I figured out you meant "garden"!

Sharp as a tack, I am.

They are a handy substitute for a hammer. Good door stop if you have a door that needs propped and a floor you don't care about. Bad thing to stump a toe on in the middle of the night. ;-)
