To make these birdbaths, purchase a terra cotta pot and larger terra cotta saucer in your choice of size. I painted the pot and outside of the saucer with acrylic paint and sprayed with a sealer. I designed the middle with glass pieces, grouted and then sealed with a grout sealer. Glue the saucer to the pot with E6000 glue.
Its a rainy day and I was repotting some plants. I have been wanting to make a fairy garden and accessories were on sale for 70% off today at Joanns. I took the plants I had around the house and put this together. The only difficulty I had was the house sinking. I placed an old plastic butter container underneath to support it. Fun Project! I am hooked on a You Tube channel called Garden Answer, and she gave me the inspiration.
Today Walgreens had 70% off on their Easter products.. They had the most adorable set of cappuccino cups, originally $9.99. I got them for $2.99. I have tons of Hens and Chicks in my yard and decide to use them as little planters. I place a stone at the bottom as there isn't any drainage holes. Filled with cactus soil and watered slightly. I thought they were adorable! I might go back and get dome more. Would be a cute Mothers Day gift.
Back in the middle 1970's, my sister and I each received a dollhouse made by my grandfather. My grandfather was an excellent carpenter. I was so excited. When I was single, I ripped all the decorations off and planned to redecorate in hopes that my children would play with it. Well, that never happened as life goes by so quickly. So now I ask myself, should I keep this or sell to someone who could get use out if it. Or, keep it, redecorate it and give to grandchildren??!
