At a yard sale several years ago, I found a box of stained glass supplies that were being sold by the daughter of a man who had died. In the box were many items I could use for my mosaics hobby. There was also this hot air balloon that the man had made. They were going to throw it out, figuring I wouldn't want it. But I told them I'd take it too. It's really rough, but I like it and it hangs in my yard.
