2nd Time Around: Estate Sale Bird Bath

Welcome to 2nd Time Around. I would love for you to join us by creating a post featuring something that is 2nd Time Around for you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, etc. Just link the title of the post to Mr. Linky below.

This week I would like to show you a bird bath that my son bought at an estate sale. It is in my front flower bed. I love the older aged finish of the concrete. IMG_0869

Good Morning Miz Diane,

Diane, Jeanne posted for your event, but she must have forgotten to link up! I saw her post this morning over at Backyard Neighbor. She's on vacation, and I think her internet access is limited.

XO,

Wonderful birdbath and you have a great spot for it where the birds can drink and splash and then hide from any danger.

I adore old birbaths, they have such character. Don't you just wish they could tell their story of what they've seen and heard through the years!

Susan S. said...

What an awesome find! My next door neighbor just got a similar bird bath from an estate sale. It was a little chipped and the owner thought she was crazy for buying it....but that Bird Bath is so cute and looks so great in her yard, she's ecstatic to have gotten it. Now I'm on the lookout for one of my own. :)

Smilingsal said...

Great addition to your lovely yard.

anythinggoeshere said...

What a great birdbath! What a fun idea of the second time around. I might have to join in. I just wrote down your blog address.. Looks like fun...xo Joan

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

I love it! I found an old bird bath base in the shore house back "yard" (it's about the size of a small bathroom, my "yard" :-) and I've been pondering buying a new basin for it. You have me thinking yes!
