It has been raining and just miserable here in Chicago. We had 8 inches of snow last week and then by the week end cold and rain. The rain has washed away a lot of the snow. My sump pump has been running non stop with all the snow melting and rain. I guess it is a good thing maybe Spring is trying to appear.
Back at Christmas my dear friend Kathy gave me a beautiful repurposed bird feeder she made from items she had and picked up at thrift stores. I just love this piece and can't wait to put it out in the garden this summer.
It got me thinking maybe I need a trip to Goodwill!!!!! So I did and these are my repurposed birdbaths and feeders I made. Each one cost less than $5 dollars to make depending on what I could find at Goodwill and what I had at home.
|I loved that I could re purpose these old bowls, vases and candle sticks into something pretty for the garden.|
|A lot of the plates and vases already had pretty flowers or birds in the designs.|
|This little bird bath can be a feeder and a bath with the vintage bowl and plate.|
|The base on this feeder is an aqua blue and the top feeder is aqua blue too. The little birds will be able to sit as they eat with this having a bigger surface.|
|I love this one because the birds will be able to sit on the feeder to eat. Love the aqua in the vase and the feeder top.|
|This one will be able to be a feeder or a bird bath with it having the wider bowl. It is hard to see but I love the etched flower pattern in the center of this bowl on top.|
|In this feeder I have a few of my grandmothers old anchor bowls and plates put together.|
|Have a great week.|
