    So many ideas for this: potted flowers or herbs, patio table if the stones are "glued", etc. I have dug out enought stones over the past 2 years which are just staked in a corner of the yard. Thank you so much.

    My Father never had a bought bird bath; he always used a garbage can lid. That was in the 1940's up to the time of his death in 1981. The birds loved it. They could grip they little feet on the rim of it, which helped them balance themselves.

    "use what you have". That's my new motto too. I just made a little walk with old bricks that were in a pile for years. I love the stacked look.

    This is adorable! I have one concern, however. Years ago I killed an entire pond of beautiful koi by using galvanized chicken wire to build them "caves" where they could hide from the racoons. The previous owner had dogs to keep the critters away and we

      Lurella ~ these "aged" galvanized trashcan lids are well oxidized and the birds are enjoying the water without any ill effects. New galvanized metal would not be advised - but I was upcycling vintage (read old!)!
