Faucet knob art

I've collected these knobs and decided to put them in a free form on the fence.  My husband says the shape resembles the shape of the U.S.  It does take a little imagination.  I'll continue to add more as I find them.

Take care,

I haven't learned to weld yet, so I began thinking of other things I could do with my growing collection of knobs. Posted: 1:12 am on June 4th

monakent writes: I too thought this was one of Jenny's.... What a fun piece!!! What a great idea to keep adding more as you find them (just be careful of how many you add, so the fence doesn't fall over!!!). Enjoy ~ gailmarie Posted: 2:42 pm on June 2nd
