Hoarding: For the Birds

The top terracotta bowl has been in my closest for at least a year since it came home from the ReStore. I loved the look of it and a couple of times I filled it with fruit and had it on my kitchen counter. The bottom metal piece has been in my closet for at least a year too. Boy, it's sounding like I just might be a hoarder....coming across both pieces recently, I thought it would be cool if I could find a middle piece and turn the whole thing into a bird bath.

Randomly I was in Hobby Lobby on a Saturday which doesn't happen all that often. In fact I was trying to waste time as my daughter was over shopping in the mail so I toured the ENTIRE store. That also doesn't happen. I love craftstores, but generally run in for the one thing I need. I happened to walk through the spring section that was all 50% off and found this ceramic piece. It's already distressed already even! I think all three pieces work well together. I just need to drill a few holes through the ceramic pieces and use the threaded rod I bought to hold them together. I also need to settle on a paint color!

Wish me luck! 


  1. Good luck!! I can't wait to see it... it will be gorgeous I'm sure... I still have to work on my "tower"... oh... maybe if I have Saturday off this is what I will do... ooh I should start my wheels turning... thanks for the inspiration my friend!

  2. Would loved to see it all attached and painted !

  3. You've got vision, no doubt about it!

  4. You were meant to put all these things together at the right time.. it wasn't the right time last year so they were kept safe until now.. looking forward to seeing the end result.. the birds will thank you!

  5. Ahhhh....before and after and're killing me smalls. This is wicked terrific!!!
