Remember this? I told you I'd post a photo when I was finished with it. Here it is.
wonderful as I hoped, but maybe it's getting there. I think the "money ball" is a nice distraction from the scraggliness of the succulents.
I had seen a garden orb with pennies glued all over it and thought it was cool. Then I remembered the box full of foreign coins that we have been accumulating for the past 40 years. I finally thought of a use for them. I glued a bunch of them all over the concrete ball and when the glue had dried I grouted the whole thing. I have already had to reglue one coin that fell out, so I am hoping that was a fluke and is not going to be a problem. I am inordinately pleased with it, though. I can't stop looking at it. I think in 100 years one of my great grandchildren will take it to the Antiques Roadshow,* and though it will not be worth anything much, the expert will praise its quirkiness and sentimental value.
*yes, I think Antiques Roadshow will still be on TV (or whatever replaces TV) in 100 years. Because it may be the BEST TV SHOW, EVER!
