Tea Cup Bird Feeder

I found this box of dishes at a garage sale over the weekend for just $4.00. I was so excited because beautiful dishes is just one of my many obsessions. The gal selling the dishes was kind enough to display the chipped dishes on the top of the heap. At first, I thought I would break the chipped dishes up for a Mosaic bird bath that has been in progress for about a year. Then it came to me, I should make a bird feeder for the garden. I had a left over porch spindles from a deck project so, I just used water proof epoxy and applied the dishes to the top of the spindle. Then, I drilled a hole in the bottom of the wooden spindle to inserted a broken garden stake which allowed me to stick the feeder directly into the grown .
I filled the tea cup with seed.
and
Then, I place the feeder in the ground.
and
Here's how it looks! My first guest was a Chickadee.
