Copper Bird Feeder

soonergirl1968(7a OKC)July 2, 2010

Here is a bird feeder (which will probably end up being a squirrel feeder) I made from a large copper vase and a copper plate I picked up at the swap meet. I filled the vase with concrete to keep it from falling over.

And, she certainly doesn't qualify as GJ but isn't she cute lying on her chaise by the pool? This is my Princess Bella...

That bird feeder is gorgeous, as well as your flower beds. The bird feeder is very classy looking. What breed is P. Bella, she looks like a big ole sweetheart, and isn't she lucky to have her own chaise by the pool.

Thanks, Frou! She is a Boerboel (South African Mastiff) and yes... she is a BIG ole sweetheart!! I'm not sure, but I think my dogs MIGHT be a little spoiled but I love them dearly :)

Well, we had a bit of rain and the bird seed went everywhere so I think it has now officially become a birdbath!! :)

My copper totem/plant stand came unglued in the winter weather even though it was on the porch with over hang. They sure are pretty though. Also, I love Bella.

Very sharp! I love copper and it's changing patina. Your piece sits well amidst those beautiful hydrangeas and impatiens. Nice work!

Bella's a beauty -Such a sweet and contented look.

I love your new birdbath! I love rustic metal pieces so this is a beauty in my book. Great idea to fill the vase with concrete too.

And Bella does look a tiny bit spoiled there. I can't say she is too spoiled because I don't see a doggy drink with a little umbrella in it next to her chaise. Now is that really a doggy chaise or is she that big that she takes up an entire people chaise lounge? If she's a Mastiff, I imagine she would! TFS both pics!

Vintage looking birdbath, some birds might like a flatish rock in center. My stain glass B&B gift BB has a copper edge & birds are on it all the time. Beautiful dog! Jan

Good use of the copper pieces, and really pretty in the garden. Bella is wonderful, is she guarding your GJ stuff or just enjoying the view? LOL.
Dogs are supposed to be spoiled. Just ask mine!

hugs, Karen
