This Sunday is Father' s Day here in the USA. I wish all Fathers, Grandfathers, Sons, Uncles, Brothers and anyone else a wonderful day.
Mr. C is all of the above and my husband I love dearly. We are do-overs in life and I feel so very fortunate that we found one another.
He really does put up with a lot when it comes to me and my quirkiness!
A few years ago I brought a used bowling ball home. No, neither of us bowl. So he simply had fun and bowled it down our steep driveway. I retrieved it as I needed it for a project. Oh No! Not another project. So he bowled it down the driveway again and I never found it. It probably went into the water canal and navigated who knows how many miles.
So I have always been looking for another used ball. All of them were far too expensive for me. Finally I found one at the local thrift store for $6. When I brought it home I hid it from Mr. C so he wouldn't bowl it down the driveway again.
This is my finished project. Mr. C actually bought me a steel post to place the finished ball on and he pounded it into the rock hard red clay ground. This is my new "gazing" ball.
This project is pretty time consuming as it goes slowly to glue the pennies on and then let them dry really well before rolling it to a blank space. I forgot to count the pennies but I think it is about $8 worth. So for about $25 total I have a really unique coppery yard art piece. It will be interesting to see the real pennies verdigris and the new non-copper pennies just remain the way they are.
My heartfelt thank you Mr. C and a very Happy Father's Day.
May you all enjoy a day of time spent together and making happy memories...
