That was such a wonderful surprise,,, okay, not that they won,,, well, maybe a little because they won, but mostly ,,,, it was the blowout! WOW!!!!
The rain barrel is done and the City of Everett now owns it. YAY!
I went back to my work and redid it over and over until I couldn't figure out what else to do with it. If you'd like to see the first pictures click here .....
When you see it in "person", it looks great. In these pictures, not so great. The whole idea is to cover that big blue barrel. So, let's check it out.
|The recycled air conditioner piece makes |
a great water spout.
|Here you can see her eye and mouth better.|
|Fishies! You can see more of the blue |
behind the metal now.
|Here you can see more of the blue in the |
background. I like this a lot better
than my first try.
|I cut out around the overflow spout.|
|I cut out around the hole where the |
tap for the hose will go.
|The back of the whale.|
|The heart in her tail.|
|Door hardware and an old square head nail |
close the sides together very nicely.
|I used the plasma cutter for a quick hole, |
then mounted the hardware from
the inside with rivets.
|That small rectangle is 2 magnets stuck together |
from an old Sonicare toothbrush head.
It closes the top flap over the over flow spout.

OKAY! So, one down for this year. MAN! I'm really slow this year. I've decided to take a break this year. I am putting my application in for Sorticulture and Hempfest, nothing else this year. I hope to get in. I'll let you know when I find out!!!
Hope you enjoyed your weekend and that your weather is being good to you. The news sounded dismal at best all week. Sorry!
