Tea Cups

Remember my Goodwill teacups from a few weeks back? Here is what they turned into.
In case you can't tell, this is a teacup bird feeder. I made one for me, and one for each of Robert's sisters for their birthdays.

Good friend Debbie pointed out that this might not be the best bird feeder for Oregon winters, what with the rain and all. Yes, I suppose most bird feeders around here do have a roof. In fact my teacup bird feeder is currently turning into a bird bath as we speak!

But it's so cute! And, it's right outside my kitchen window so I'm hoping to spot some beautiful birds soon.

p.s. sorry for typos in previous post. I need to learn to proof read.

It's been 3 days and no birds have found my feeder yet. Maybe they don't like water-logged bird seed? I'm guessing that when the birds do arrive, most will be starlings. They are pretty, but so everywhere. I feel like a collective noun for starlings should be "a gang" because they kind of go around in a gang and scare off the other birds.

These are great--I might be interested in the instructions, as I think Theresa (Keith's mom) would really like this. (She loves tea, so it would be a cute gift, regardless of how many birds she will watch.) :)

Did you glue the cup to the plate? More instructions!
