Traditions !

Hello peeps !
I have tried something new  this time .. 
It completely about my tradition ! Two days back i visited my village to see my grandmother where are saw few things can never change .. like the well and ladies digging out water from it !
inspired from this family tradition .. i have crafted a well with a container which takes out water !
It took a lot time to make this .. consumed one entire day !
I thank Mistyrose for making me make this project for her blog hop ! 
I love the way it has turned out ! 
This tradition is important to my family as well as country . There was a time when there was no water tap or pump .. and even if it was it was for high rich society ! 
My grandparents were very poor .. he use to earn 2cents  a day and my grandmother taught my dad . She tried her best to educate my dad . Today my Dad is a doctor and all goes to my grandparents ! 
Misty thanx ! Your challenge made me think other way down ! I gave me time to introspect ! 
I hope you all will like my project !
