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.
