Bird Feeders made out of vintage china

My Vintage Bird Feeder:
A few posts ago when I showed you some vintage china {HERE}  that I had found, I had some bird feeders in mind .....

I made one for my friend, for her birthday. 
I think they are so much fun! When I get a little spare time away from sewing, jewelry making and life, I want to make some more. :) I love how they look out in the yard, hanging for the birds, so pretty!!
Here's another set of dishes I picked up at a little shop uptown....called "Up Town Shops" :)
I first saw them and got soo overly excited, seen the price tag and thought "Oh I have to have these!!" :) Then I seen in the booth, a sign that said everything besides jewelry was an extra 20% off!! I couldn't believe it! I was soo ecstatic with happiness!! Now my first thought was, these would make some beautiful bird feeders and so many other things.....after I got them home....well a little bit different story! LOL. I can't put holes in them, they're too pretty! SO I decided to wash all of them up and use them as our dishes for now. I just put the others in storage for a bit. :) And these are the ones I used to set the table with too, in this post.

 Last week I received a very pretty package from Donna's Lavender Nest

She has so many beautiful prints in her shop! :) 
Thank you so much Donna!! I just love them! 
I'm thinking I'm probably going to have to go back! haha.

Hope you all have a wonderful Friday!! 
So glad its the weekend! 
Hubby and I have a date Saturday~ we're thinking about going to the beach, want to go to a craft show{it's called Hometown Days} and out to dinner, maybe we'll rent a movie too. With summer, seems like its been a while since we watched one! :) 
~Smiles and HUGS~
