I saw this while browsing stuff on Flickr and thought she did a wonderful job on this birdbath. I love how colorful it is.

Enjoy, Karen

Karen, She certainly did make some pretty birdbaths. If they are working birdbaths, I'll bet they are hard to keep clean. Thank you for sharing. - Marylee

Very colorful! Love the cardinal figurine in it too!

Oh my! That's so pretty! I like it better than the clear glass totems!

She does have a lot of gorgeous birdbaths but like marylee said, they are probably hard to keep clean. I'd probably chase the birds away from mine if I had one like that! he-he

Yep, I looked at all 5 pgs of her birdbath creations and they are wonderful. My favorite was the one with the two big green leaf plates. I'd want all of these on a covered porch, LOL.

hugs, Karen

They're gorgeous. And, yes, they would be almost impossible to clean. If I would have one it would be strictly ornamental.

They are fantastic, and the plates she has found are fabulous! Where did she ever get all those bird figurines?

Kathy, I recognized some of the bird figurines from Dollar Tree. But I imagine she found others at thrift shops or yard sales, otherwise they'd be too pricey to buy so many.

Matte figurines look so much better sprayed with high gloss so they have a porcelin look I think, and easier to clean. Some I've found at Dollar Tree and GW look a LOT better "glossed up". It really brings the colors out.

Everything she has made is absolutely beautiful. I would think that her art would be better off on a porch or inside the house. She has the eye for coordinating all the colors and figurines in her creations. It sounds like she sells a lot of them. I can see why. Thanks for sharing this with us purplemoon. Lots of inspirations in her works.

Great work!
I see a lot of possibilities in the photos.

They're so fun to make - but the collecting part can get you in trouble. My greenhouse looks like a hoarder lives there!

RE: pretty totem birdbath

OMGosh...I went back and looked through all of these creations....be still my heart! They are just gorgeous! And the cool part is I have things to make some of these types of birdbaths......I think I may be in trouble now.....thanks Karen!

Those are nice. i like to make them at least 3 ft high and with the bottom plate upside down so that it doesn't gather water at the bottom.

Hugs,Carmen
