Bowling Ball Fence - artsy craft project for old bowling balls
The other day I drove down a street in my neighborhood that I usually don't drive on, and for the first time saw this interesting use of old bowling balls. You know how you can always find old bowling balls for a buck or so at a yardsale? I wonder if that's how this fence got started. The yard is on a hill, so I wasn't able to take a picture of the entire bowling ball fence. I'm guessing they just got varying lengths of rebar (or similar) and put some sort of epoxy in one of the finger holes and just staggered them. Maybe someday I'll stop in and ask for instructions.
I just searched google for other bowling ball fences and none were as pretty as this one. I think it looks sorta artsy.
I'm sure you noticed the ugly "photo from yardsalequeen.com" across the photo. I did that cuz I am tired people taking my pictures and more without permission. And I figured this picture is a kind that someone (not YOU of course) would copy and put on a crafts website without asking permission. So I figure, I might as well get credit for it.
The other day I stumbled across a new garage sale website and saw that they copied word for word - about a half page directly from my website. And then on someone else's blog I saw a picture that I took - with no credit or mention of yardsalequeen.com Very irritating to know there are people who think nothing of taking someone else's work and claiming it as their own. Makes me want to come over and knock them upside the head with my bitch belt buckle (that is, if I could find where I put it.)
