Mini Telescope

I thought it would be fun to have a little telescope on the deck of my beach house. I found one online for $11 but decided I would try to make one instead. Total cost for this project - three toothpicks, one small dowel, two buttons, a few drops of paint and glue, plus $100 worth of patience!

Just so I can enjoy a view like this!

Hope you have a beautiful morning!
Blessings, Kathi

You did a great job :-)

I would love to have a view like that but I liven in the middle of the city and Austria has no coast :-(

Maybe you can lend me your telescope and I can see so far until I can see the ocean!

hugs, Taenia

The telescope is great and the view is too. Do you really have that view?

I love the telescope and the lanterns. If I proceed with my idea of a sea captain's house, I may have to "snitch" those ideas!
