Show and Tell

Today I'm going to show you one of my Mothers Day presents. My daughter and I went to a craft show and one booth had a couple unique items. I liked 2 items but only bought one.
My daughter bought one of these for herself and a similar one for her mother-in-law. At least that's what she told me! I was really surprised when I got one for Mothers Day. Can you tell what it is? It's a bird feeder plus great garden art!

A seed bell fits in either one but you can also put an orange in the top one to attract orioles. I've never seen any orioles here so I decided to try an orange in the top.I think it looks great in this garden with the rusty wheelbarrow next to my neighbors garage.
This is the item that I bought myself. It didn't photograph too well but it is beads on wires.
A super addition to my shade garden.If you would like to join the fun or see a list of all the Show and Tell posts for today, go over to Kelli's House.

The suet feeder is a perfect addition to your fabulous garden!
I am a pushover for that beaded stuff, too.

Awesome bird feeder! I have a rusted out Radio Flyer wagon in my flower bed and that would look great next to it!

I love AL your garden whimseys. What a great idea for the bird feeder. I'm guessing the squirrels can't get to that one.

Oh goodness....that birdfeeder is fabulous! I'd get one in a flash and then the squirrels would be so happy to scurry off with the seed ball everyday! HA!

I love both garden items. I am always looking for something different to put in my garden. That bird feeder is too cute. I'm sure the beaded one is a nice addition to the shade garden. I love the area beside your neighbor with the wheelbarrow.

The beady thing is very unique. Did you make it? I've not seen one for sale. Maybe I could make one.

What exactly show and tell, can anyone join? I'm trying to get my pictures ready for Bloomin Tuesday, I'm not sure what I'm going to post. I wanted to also thank you for your kind words you left on my blog. God sends just the right people with just the right words. Hugs, RoseMarie

I love your garden sculptures -- both of them. The beaded one looks fun and the bird feeder one is mighty handsome and fitting there with the rusted wheelbarrow -- guess what got tossed on top of th dumpster pile? Keep? Toss? Keep? Toss? It was a toss up... so I did.
