...hey, little birdbath...






I have this little birdbath looking pretty good.....

tucked in with the colorful flowers, it feels right at home...



 green for water...
blue for bird seed...
tiny green for cuteness...or....


a cute little RED BIRD 










or maybe a tiny real live plant..??? 






...a thought crossed my mind after I started making this little treasure...

Athena, the Great Dane loves water...we can barely water the flowers for her wanting to drink from the hose...

she is going to want to drink the water, just sure as the world...
and as big as Athena is, over comes the whole thing.......
I may just put a beautiful plant in it for the time being...
that will be pretty, too..
Mr. Sweet votes to not put anything in it...he likes the looks of it just like this..


The glue isn't quite cured so I have a few rocks propping up the little one.

having a project turn out as cute as you hoped it would ....xoxo

  5. Absolutely beautiful, the colors are perfect. I hope you put water in it for the birds, sometimes water is scarce for them. Yesterday I used the hose to fill our bird bath and while I was doing that and standing one foot away a scrub jay flew in and stood in the water.

  8. How neat! You are very creative. I have a small dog that wouldn't mess with it, so just drop it off at my house. :)

  9. Hi BJ, this turned out so cute. I think it would be pretty planted with hens and chickens, or to use as an end table to set your summer lemonade on :) Your yard is beautiful, so well groomed and no weeds. How do you do it?
    Happy 4th of July!

  13. Very pretty bj. It would be pretty with all three levels filled with fresh water for the birds. They would love to bath in it too. The little red bird in the top saucer looked really cute. Good luck in keeping Athena away from it. Mr. Sweet may just have the best answer to the problem.
    Hugs and Happy fourth.

  16. Great work BJ!! I say a little plant, but then I seem to gravitate towards living things.

    Hope Athena doesn't decide to take a drink from it.

    God bless.

  17. Hello bj, I did not get to visit last week for Blue Monday because the internet came up and went down again. It was finally fixed 2 days ago, permanently so they say. I pray they are right.

    Your bird bath is so pretty. I know you had a wonderful time making it. The colors are awesome. What kind of glue did you use? I love it to pieces. Everything is colorful and so cheerful. Athena better not come near it. Smile.

    Happy 4th of July to you and yours.
    Love,
    Jeanne

  35. So pretty and colorful. Really adds to the area. I know you enjoy doing these things, but please be careful of the heat. We had a terrible storm this morning and has cooled things down.

  41. What an adorable bird bath! I've seen others made with plant pots but what makes yours extra special, aside from the color, is the seed and whatever suits your fancy holders. Pinning to share :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love your birdbath! In fact, I think I need to copy it ... perhaps even down to the colors you chose! Funny about Athena :-) My sister's dog (who comes to stay with me occasionally) also likes drinking from a running hose, or even a sprinkler, lol. Her horse has also been known to stand in the sprinkler - they know how to handle the heat :-)

  44. That is SO cute! I hope the birds enjoy it and give you a show while they splash and play!
