Notice the bug eyes on this one. Love them in the flower beds. The dragonflies are on rods so you can stick them anywhere.

At our Highway 70 yard sale here in West Tennessee a man saw my wind chimes made from old forks and spoons and said it gave him an idea and that he made things out of old knives . Of course I had a bunch of old knives I could not drill for the windchimes. I gave him the knives but told him he had to make me a dragonfly, that afternoon he came back with two and some of the other items he had been making. Loved the dragonflies and the ant.

I wish JMS had a forum on the sight which we could ask questions like that from the other members... Posted: 7:52 am on June 15th

Note to grasshopper 22: I can't weld, either, but sometimes I use JB Weld, which works great, but is a bit tricky to keep in place until it dries. Posted: 12:51 pm on June 14th

Thanks for sharing...you put a smile on my face!
