Tuppence a bag, tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag…
I purchased this brass candelabra a few years back at an Estate auction. I had been wanting to do something creative with it and painted it white. Then it sat for a while – do I put teacups or bowls on top – to make a creative decorative item? I was stalled for a while.
So, the notion of creating a whimsical bird feeder came to fruition. I glued a few old clay pots I had onto the tops of each of the arms of the candelabra. I thought I might add decorative items with Mod Podge or paint something decorative, then I decided to leave it as it is.
Now, where to hang the candelabra bird feeder. I must add, this is quite heavy! I thought to put it in the tree in the front yard. Then I changed my mind – we have three cats and this would enable them to perch and to pounce on a sweet bird.
So, I placed this on the multi-armed flower/bird feeder holder, not quite sure what it is actually called. This is located at our back patio and I can see the birdfeeder from my kitchen window – where my desk is – and where I am typing right now!
I am looking forward to seeing the beautiful song birds stopping by to feed on the new candelabra bird feeder.
Do you like whimsy in your garden? Do you like to attract song birds and butterflies? By the way…have I suggested the Mary Poppins tune to play in your mind? I would begin singing ‘Feed the birds…’ while with my children and it never failed, they’d all join me in saying, ‘tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag…’. We just LOVE that movie and that song. I hope you have a Delightsome day!
