There's A Reindeer In My Birdfeeder!!!
This old cedar birdfeeder has been hanging in the garage for years. I think I stopped using it because the lid would freeze shut in the winter. But I recently had an idea of making a "shadowbox" with it.
So I cleaned it out, and sprinkled some of these old mica flakes inside that I found at a garage sale. I love that box!
Then I added a white tree, a wee little deer and some ornaments.
It hangs by the shed, which makes me wander over there at least once a day to see how the little guy is doing, and to see if all of the mica flakes have blown away. So far so good!
What? Is this what you were expecting from the title of this post? Well, the best part is that I have one more of those birdfeeders hanging in the garage, just waiting to be turned into another shadowbox. But what to put in there?
Maybe a little bear?
