I stopped feeding the birds last week, but decided to hang my “new” bird feeder up for the summer, just because I like looking at it from my studio window. When Jon and I went to the dump a few weeks ago to get rid of our garbage, I saw this pink metal feeder on the table of free stuff and scooped it up like a hawk on a mouse.
Not only is it that great faded pink that I love, but it’s metal, like one of those 1960’s doll houses that I had when I was a kid. The rugs and pictures on the walls printed right on the metal. And all that plastic furniture that went in it, so out of proportion to each other.
So my little pink bird feeder will hang out my window for the summer. I have no doubt it will get into my head and end up in one of my drawings or stitchings. Isn’t that finial on the top just the prettiest thing!
