Christmas Gift Spoiler Alert (for my family): I’ve been making these sweet bird feeders for Christmas and I got SO into it, I’ve inadvertently created my own cottage industry… all over the kitchen table… my desk… our console table… the garage…  I’ve posted a few in my *NEW* ETSY store (my store name is – you guessed it: Mishinctrl).  And I thought a good ol’ blog post would help to advertise.

Do you have a bird enthusiast or gardener in your life that would appreciate a beautiful and quirky addition to their yard?

Each bird feeder is a matched set of mostly fine bone china,  rescued from flea market obscurity and up cycled into a bird feeder using chain and an S hook. These pieces are handmade and unique, or doubly unique in that I only have two ;-).  Just add either water or your favorite bird seed, and hang in an accommodating tree.  Sturdy in most weather, but bring inside in windy conditions.
