So we had a wonderful Memorial Weekend. The weather was beyond gorgeous. Warm and sunny during the day and cooler at night for good sleeping! After the winter we had it is so nice to be able to enjoy being outside!
On Saturday we went to Brad's aunts house for a barbecue. We had good food and even played some games. It was nice to be there and get to know Brads family. They are nice people and I am excited to be joining our families.
On Sunday I made a bird bath using Terra cotta pots. It's an idea I got off of Pinterest of course.
I painted them using the same paint that I used on my front door a few years ago.It's good exterior paint and I love the color.
The we put put them together. First this way.
Didn't really like it that way.We wanted it just a little bit taller.
So we put them this way.
The bowl is a old pasta bowl that I got at a garage sale or a rummage sale several years ago. It's been sitting in the basement all this time. I never really put pasta in it because it's a little pitted inside and it just never seemed clean enough to me!
It's perfect for my birdbath though!
Rich approves! I stenciled some birds on it and we put it together with some glue and a couple bolts.
Here it is in place in the backyard. I put a few rocks and some water inside.
On Monday we had the kids over for a barbecue. They were duly impressed with my craftiness!
It was a perfect weekend!
Until the next time.....
