3 more flowers for Marysville. 

OKAY!  Joy is calling me and jumping up and down.  Time to get outside for our second walk of the day.  This morning we did good!  We found lots of cans, a little scrap metal, a good sized plastic crate and a wonderful 3 foot tall 4X4 painted white.  Love that one!

Let me know what you think of these.  I do love to hear from you.  It all helps the next piece I make!

Have a good one and thanks for stopping by!

    1. I welded the stem that's inside the door knob, the one that goes through the door into the door knob on the other side,,,, I welded that stem to the rebar. then I assembled all my pieces, then attached the door knob. The screw on the door knob is holding all the parts on the stem. OR,,, sorry I can't remember exactly. I might have welded the door knob to the stem through that hole in the door knob.

      BUT, that stem is welded to the rebar. Thank! Shelley
