Ta da! The finished chime.
A glorious box o junk!
Where to start?

I was so excited when I got a box from my new Junk Friend MichelleG22.  Oodles and oodles of goodies.  This is the first project.  Now credit for this must go to my husband who pretty much saw that tire and was off running.  I had very limited input.  The cups make a lovely clink when they hit the croquet ball.  We found the white chain on a planter at a thrift store and hubby actually made the other chain on his own - after experimenting with different patterns. I have lots left to work with as time permits.  This has been so much fun.  A million thanks to Sue for organizing what must have been an enormous task!

Pattern or design used: My own design
