Because it was about 7,452 degrees in the brick oven that is my store I spent much of the day in the backyard. I got out bottle caps and my metal tools and came up with these cute little flowers. If I get enough ambition I am hoping to get quite a few made for this weekends show downtown. If you know Wisconsin you know we love our beer so I am sure they would be quite popular! They are rather simple to make but figuring out exactly how I will assemble them is the tricky part. I want to figure out a way to hide the wires but like most things the thrill of the project is fading so if I actually make them or not is still undecided.
As I was sitting in the backyard I noticed the birdies had nowhere to escape the heat in our backyard. I went in the store and got some pieces of bamboo and some old bowls and e6000end them to the sticks. Of course being the completely impatient artist that I am I put water in the bowls before they were even close to set so a couple of the bowls are a little wompy but I just stuck them in the ground a little crooked so it works out great. Hopefully they hold up to the birdies if not I may have to work on the design a little more than 4 minutes!
Speaking of water this is Glenn's little fountain he made. I added a few plants that will hopefully take up the space. I am in love with my new grass too but I of course do not know the name of it. None the less it is a funky plant that has lots of height which I love.
So what did ya'll do to beat the heat? Hopefully you to were able to escape to your outdoor retreat!
