I saw a similiar birdbath while in Shupp's Grove, Pennsylvania. A fellow junkmarket member, JunkChick, has an awesome little shop there called North of Eden Creations and she makes birdbaths, birdfeeders, birdhouses. and lots more. Thanks Tina for the inspiration!

 I attached the pretty blue ceiling light fixture to an old table leg that I painted, added some silicone where it's attached so it won't leak, and then to give it a little something extra I added a spoon hook so a sign, a wreath, chimes, or anything else could be hung. I attached a fence post/stake to the back for stability in the ground.

It really is cute! I wish the photo had turned out better.
