Vintage Thingie Thursday - China For the Birds!

I love to collect Vintage China Plates and Tea Cups and Saucers. A while ago, I ordered a whole lot of China Plates on Ebay. They arrived all broken! I saw a vision in all those broken pieces of China for the Birds!

I took these pictures yesterday, look how pretty my pink daisy bush is! Doesn't it know it's the middle of January?

That is such a pretty birdhouse! And your mums are beautiful! Just the thought of seeing live flowers outside is giving me Spring fever!

How gorgeous is this bird house!!
Lucky you to have flowers blooming in your garden.
Here it's still drab & gloomy not even a daffodil to brighten my day.
Happy VTT

love it!! I've got a huge stash with the same idea. love the use of the teacup for them to perch.

That's a creative use of broken pottery. I hate it when people break pottery on purpose.

I'm sure any bird would be happy to call that home. It is so pretty. Nice way to turn a negative into a positive.

Absolutely lovely! You sure found a great way to put that broken china to work for you. But how in the world did you cut that teacup in half?!
Happy VTT!

I just love your beautiful mosaic birdhouse! It's great that you made lemonade out of the lemons you received!:-)

Your teacup birdfeeders are also adorable! I have made them also for our elementary school. Several years ago I had designed an outdoor classroom/wildlife habitat in the courtyard of my children's elementary school! They were quite a hit with the kids,teachers & the birds! Great to see them again--brings back wonderful memories!!:)

Thanks for following my blog!

The bird house is so elegant. Maybe if I had a birdhouse like that I'd draw some colorful birds to my garden! I seem to attract many brown (but darling) birds!
