Wishing Wells by Bruce Bainbridge

This image is of two small wishing wells made out of popsicle sticks. Their roofs are pointed and the small structures about the size of a large hand. One has a fuscia roof with a purple base and the other has a teal roof with a yellow and teal base. They have a crank and small silver buckets held by a thread

Bruce writes, “First of all, who doesn’t like to have their very own wishing well. As a kid I was always excited when I came upon a wishing well, tossed my coin in and made a wish. I don’t think too many wishes came true, but it was a fun thing. The buckets in the wells are a little tricky trying to get angles, then getting all the pieces to fit together without breaking. The tongue depressors I sometimes get from a medical nurse and the popsicle sticks are  from confections. The handle is a piece of paper clip rounded over with the use of a marker of the right size.”
