UpCycled Bird Bath

For my feathered friends

For my feathered friends.
This has to be one of my all time favorite upcycled items.  Well, as I am typing this, I think I have upcycled so many things it’s hard to pick a favorite.  I found this old really heavy lamp at house sale. It had the tallest, ugliest lampshade, but I could see the potential! I brought it home and took out the wiring, had the metal tube that holds it together cut back down to size.  I needed it inside to hold the greek goddess to the base.  Now I simply needed a bowl of some sort to put the water in. So I searched in stash!  I couldn’t believe it..this is perfect! I didn’t really want to part with this bowl because it was in my china cabinet.  I purchased it at Ross a few years back and it came in handy for all sorts of parties. That’s okay, it just gives me another reason to go shopping.  Back to the bird bath.  The top of the lamp had a wide flower petal like shape, which I knew would work out great.  I simply mixed up some two part epoxy and attached the bowl. That was to easy!

Whimsical Flower Pots

Since it’s almost SPRING..yeah…I thought I would post these flower pots! These would sure add color and whimsy to any garden. I wish it were warm enough outside to take a picture of them on my patio area with flowers in them!
