The Blue Sky Bistro ♥

I've added a fun blue glass bottle birdseed feeder to the Etsy shop! They won't be a regular - only when I happen upon a blue Skyy Vodka bottle at the recycle center - will these feeders be available.

I love the color of these bottles accented with the copper wire and pendant... 
I think the birds approve too!

 Place in indirect light – avoid direct sunlight.
Water 2-3 times a week. Submerge briefly or use a spray bottle.
Use a liquid fertilizer – ¼ strength – twice a month

Finally Fall

Today is the first day the cooler temperatures have finally made me realize autumn has arrived in the Ozarks. The leaves haven't changed their colors much at my property, but the walnuts are plenty this year and they're falling like crazy. I dread the freezing cold of winter, but I love the colors and slower pace of this season... 
-Soon the frantic holiday shopping will begin in our shop - Rebecca's Bird Gardens

Rustic Bird Feeder ~ "The Diner"

Just listed a bunch of new large bird feeders, "The Diner" - to the Etsy shop! Many have antique ceiling tiles on the roof. - Some of them I left the original peeling paint (sealed it to protect it from the elements) and I removed the paint from a few of the other roofs. - I love the flower detail on the tin! These feeders are made of weather resistant cedar and feature antique hardware and a skeleton key. The roof lifts up to fill with a large quantity of birdseed. - Hangs from attached wire. Check out all the colors in the Etsy shop. GREAT Christmas gifts!! Follow this link:

Wine Bottle Bird Feeders

Over the years I've came up with a lot of ways to repurpose glass bottles into bird feeders...

A small glass bottle hummingbird feeder ~ "The Sweet Shoppe"
-small upcycled water and beer bottles, copper wire, decorative accents and a hummingbird tube adapter...

A larger wine bottle hummingbird feeder ~ "The Tavern"

A birdseed wine bottle feeder ~ "The Vineyard"

And now - an additional wine bottle hummingbird feeder ~ "The Viño" ♥

 My favorite part of this feeder is that the flowers on the plastic base can be positioned to make a sitting perch for the hummers! -The plastic base is actually two pieces and can be easily cleaned. It also comes with a reusable paper funnel that makes filling the feeder easy.

I usually have all the feeders available in the Etsy shop - or search my blog for the DIY insturctions!

Vertical Planter - "The Greenhouse"

Earlier this season I made a vertical box planter out of some scrap cedar that Jeff had discarded. Jeff approved of the design, perfected my carpentry attempts and we came up with our new product - "The Greenhouse" ♥  Jeff added a barn tin roof and I finished it off with a vintage skeleton key!

These unique planters can be purchased locally at the Farmers Market of the Ozarks or online at my Etsy shop! Each planter has drainage holes and a back keyhole for hanging. Available in your choice of dark brown or cedar with 3 - 4 planting areas. Perfect to display on a wall, table or deck planted with succulents or herbs.

The Rose-breasted Grosbeak

I saw my first migrating Rose-breasted Grosbeak about 4 years ago (on May 5th) as it was migrating north and stopped at a sunflower feeder at my property. Since then I've noticed that their yearly visit is always the first week of May. Last week I started keeping the feeders full of sunflower seeds and today - May 2nd - they paused their journey and enjoyed a meal!

Females and immatures are streaked brown and white
 with a bold face pattern and enormous bill. (allaboutbirds.rog)

Love how the colors of the male Downy Woodpecker blend in the the visiting guys!
