Good for you!

And it looks really good too - glad that birdbath got a caring home.

That is so pretty! What a find! Have you ever seen that show Junk Brothers I think it's called? They pick up 'junk' on the curb that is mean to be thrown out, they do something different with it, and then put it back on the curb and sneak away and watch the people come out and wonder 'what the heck?" You should send this picture to the person that was going to throw it out! laugh

I love that show, but in this case, their loss is Diane's gain....

Wow, Diane, that looks beautiful. clp clp Actually, it probably works better as a planter than it ever would have as a birdbath. :rolleyes: I've found that birds usually don't like birdbaths that are too deep frown and from the picture that one looks pretty deep! frown frown
