Great idea, Grace!! It turned out really pretty with that nice blue as well as a nice bird feeder for your yard. You are so creative with thrift store finds.I am always amazed at what you create out of stuff I would have passed right by! Let us know how the birds enjoy 3 nice feeding stations.

Well, as much as I luv this one,, it is going to be a gift,, for a lovely lady in the next town over,, she recently lost her husband, totally unexpected, hopefully the birds will bring her joy.

I had to pop into Wally-world last week,, and while there I picked up a dozen of those 98cent solar lights that you stick into the ground...just to have on hand..

I told hubby next Thrift trip I want to hunt for Sconces, the type with 1 or 2 arms.. to make wall/tree mount bird feeders...


I made this one earilier this summer,, but wouldn't it make a cute feeder, I would paint it blue or orange.. to hang from a tree...
I have in the past found the single arm type sconces...similar to these.. which would be great for a small patio or balcony.

fyi.. the black object to the left, with the red flag,, is our old mail box from the road.. Hubby set it up on a post for me to store my gloves, , twine and a few small garden hand tools... an idea that I borrowed from someone, somewhere on the inter-net...
