How many birdbaths does one gal need?

In my case, three. So far.
This was my first concrete birdbath. I found the bottom piece in a woodpile and the top came from a garage sale.

My friend Maryann helped me load this one into the back of our Jeep. It weighs a ton. She almost lost a finger, I almost lost a toe. It was worth it. It moved with us from Pennsylvania to Oregon. I think the Mayflower guys might have lost a few digits as well. Don't fret....we gave them a nice tip.

I found this fishy one at a local shop here in Portland. It was a bit spendy for me, but I traded some fab vintage jewelry for it. Thanks, Astrid!

The tiny bird is so happy that spring has arrived. More of my concrete menagerie in a future post...

Birdbaths are wonderful and practical gifts for our birdie friends. After all, you can't buy a bird a blouse or gift card. PLUS...birdbaths are an instant water feature AND sculpture all-in-one! You have some excellent examples!

Love them all, awesome. I was glad to find out that I am not alone in the birdbath obsession. My husband thinks I am crazy, I bought two more this weekend, it seems that I can't pass them up!! Lynn

Love all your birdbaths! I found a cement one curbside, and I broke my pinky finger getting it in the car. Well, I wasn't going to risk it still being there while I went and got my husband, was I?!

Hey, I'm in Eugene. Just opened a little gift shop a year ago. (anniversary May 1st!!) =0-
