Shes a skinny thing!
Ting!  Love this bottlecap altho Ive never heard of this drink - it must be a Georgia thing, huh Pam?  Thanks so much!
Should I have turned these the other way? 
My first try at using Gorilla Glue ~ I think I used too much because up close you can see it under her collar. 

I've been wanting to do this for some time now, but once my junk swap partner, Pam (TinTinJunkFan) sent me my box of goodies and I discovered the bottle cap for Ting, I just knew it was time to stop procrastinating and get her done since I now knew what her name had to be! 

She's a copy of one that Catbishop posted last year.  The xylophone is wood and metal so the cap is stuck on with a magnet.  I love that it says Ting, since that's kinda the sound this makes when you strike one of the colored strips!  Her head is a small billiard ball, her neck is a wood round block, her arms are old shoe stretchers and her legs are bowling pins from a long forgotten game. 

I'm excited that I have her done and am now inspired to start another junk project!
