Lampshade Birdbath

Remember this?
It's a glass shade

We recently bought this stand for $13

It is now this

I used  dry clear silcone

pliers  prisms and rings

I attached a prism to the 
bottom loop of the pearl

I squirted silicone glue around the hole 

and put the pearl bead down in it to seal

I applied some silcone on the legs

once set where I wanted it
I applied silcone around
both the glass and on the metal arms

I attached prisms to rings and rolled them on the arms

we secured it in the ground with these hooks

From the porch

from the road

shade $10
stand $13
metal hooks $5
Prisms, pearl, jump rings and silcone I had on hand
Total cost $28
The shade I had is huge
and you can get smaller ones
at yard sales for $5

The Rivers

We sat in the plaza
where 2 rivers come together
The Ohio River 
The Muskingum

We are  in Ohio
looking into West Virginia

we watched barges with coal go by


tube skiing



 and Wildlife

It was a great way to spend an evening
