The Wizard of OZ, My Rendition of "The Tin Man"

$10.00
12 Hours
Advanced

I LOVE to recycle and this is what I did with my empty cans, pop bottle lids, a few heavy duty wire clothes hanger and a few other items. The cost is around $10 for the screws, Paint, funnel & wooden heart

Mr. Tin Man
My daughter Laurie sent me a picture of a tin man many years ago and I fell in love with it. It took a lot of engineering, but I finally got it made. I took it into my Bible study class & ended up making several more for my friends. When I get him all together I paint the entire thing with chrome spray paint, especially the plastic funnel, and then add the little red wooden heart. Now he hangs in my garden with some of my other whimsies.

      There are 5 pages, so I am asking $5 in MO. I'd like to tell you a little about me. I was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in 2013 & was operated on at that time. I am in the top 1% of survivors. It has flared up again for the 3rd time which means many more doctor & office calls & new meds, THAT is why I am charging for the instructions. Thank you & I hope you understand. Please send MO to: Kay Haynes 3880 Anoka Drive Waterford, MI 48329 248-321-9608
