POSSE project 1

Yay! I finished one! I have to say, the best of this birdbath had NOTHING to do with my talent or creativity, I lucked into the supercool light fixture at a GS, and the same day at another GS I found the concrete stand. Really, all I did was silicone the glass beads in to plug the hole, and make the bowl slightly less deep, and I spray painted the base to match. It's happily in my hummer bed now!

Hi Mmebrady,
Your address didn't work, but I cut it back to your photobucket album address. Is this the birdbath?

I bet the hummers love you! They'll think it is a giant flower. lol! I love that light fixture. Did the shade actually have the different colors in it? Or is that the glass globs showing through to give it the different colors? Very pretty either way! And great idea adding the glass globs to make it less deep. You did an awesome job matching the red on the base too. Great job!

Stunning! Please keep your camera handy so when the hummers gather round it you can take lots of pics to post for us to see.

I'm very fond of hummers but have only seen them in Sonora Desert Zoo!!! We didn't have hummers where I lived in NY and we don't have hummers down here on Oz. :-(
Feel bad for me yet??? HA!
