A Romantic Birdfeeder~
We have the lovliest Cardinal couple that feeds in our backyard, so my husband decided to build a birdfeeder for them! They are so sweet to each other, he is always getting food for her and feeding her, they are oh so darling to watch!
I have not been able to snap a picture yet of the two of them but here is a picture of their cool handmade feeder...

Babe built this feeder out of misc
 wooden parts of chairs and old furniture we
have collected...

Isn't he a hottie!
He used old tin for the top and old spindly furniture pieces for the sides...

 
I am so amazed at what a talented builder Babe is...


I promise to post pictures of our darling Cardinal couple as soon as I can!
I am linking up with sweet Cielo for Show off your cottage at

As always thank you for stopping by and letting me share with you!
Hugs,
Olivia

  10. Wow! I never would have thought of doing a romantic birdhouse! Your hubby is not only thoughtful to make one...but gets brownie points for being willing to make a romantic one. My hubby would think I'd lost my mind if I asked for that! However, he is building my only daughter a beautiful hope chest. :o) Isn't it neat how our dear hubbies are willing to do these things for us! PS. Loved your comment about smiling at hubbies!

  12. A sweet hello from Frog Hollow Farm! What a creative hubby you have, I just love how he took pieces from other items and put them together to make a very cool looking bird feeder. Cute enough to market if you ask me! Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment - I really appreciate it! Ciao, bella!

  15. I love your birdfeeder, it's so pretty and 'shabby' looking:) We have a tree outside our deck that always has hummingbirds in it so I'm looking for a cute feeder hoping they come around!
