project for the day

Last night, while flipping through an old garden/landscape magazine. I saw a product, that inspired me. I kinda hate that, when I get inspired at 11:00 PM and have to go to sleep, then go to work the next morning, and it's late afternoon before I get started. But I held onto the inspiration and did the project. I knew that I had everything I needed in my stash of stuff, and here it is.



I'm almost afraid to show the inspiration picture, because it looks so much better than mine, but here goes.

I had an old wind chime that I had taken apart to re-work, but had never gotten to. So I pulled out the parts and used the pipes from it. Then I glued a finial to the top of a metal thing that I had and then I just started hanging stuff from it. I don't know if the chimer is too far away from the actual chimes for it to work right, but I like it anyway.
And Shelly, those are the prisms you left me on there, I love them, they are so big. I'm keeping this one for myself.

There are 2 sales tomorrow, can't wait.
See ya,
margo

Margo - tag. You're it! I've tagged you. If you don't know what to do or what this means, the details are on my blog. If you DO know, then that means you've probably been through all this before . . . and . . . but surely you won't mind going through it again?!
