a nice dripping tap

A few weeks ago I bought a replacement tap for our yard.

I got the wrong one. I didn’t know they came in more than one standard ‘yard tap’ size.

But it didn’t go to waste. I had this weathered bit of timber from an old gate or shed door, complete with a rusty hinge. I have no idea what it came off, all I know is that when I saw it in the scrap pile near the stable I grabbed it.

Like everything I collect, I knew it would come in handy one day.

I had drop shaped crystals. I had fishing line. I had crimping beads.

Most importantly, I had the tap and the board, complete with rusty hinge.

I put them all together and now I have a perpetually dripping tap… in the best possible way.

I haven’t found the right spot for it  yet, but I love the look of it near the plants in the new flower beds.

  1. Love it. I think I have some of those 'crystal' drops and I am sure I have an old board around here somewhere. I feel the need to copy you. I have had enough of leaking water pipes for now, but fake ones are okay. Thanks for visiting Timeless Treasures and leaving a nice comment.
    Have a wonderful new year.
