Birdhouse and Wind chime

We went to the Jour De Fete today.  This is a two-day craft fair.  We made a lot of purchases, including having Mom pick out two presents, one for her birthday and one item for her Christmas present.  Here is the early Christmas present.

We were tickled by the fact this product reused items.  The actual house part is made out of a plastic flowerpot, for instance.  We also liked the bottom.  Many times pretty birdhouses found at fairs do not have an easy way to access the insides of the birdhouse (for cleaning out old materials).  This one looks like it will be easy. Besides that, it had an interesting, bird-related scripture on it.  According to the King James 2000 Bible on site, the Psalm is "Yea, the sparrow has found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even your altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God."

Now, for Mom's early birthday present, she picked out a wind chime from the same people. Again, they recycled items.  For the knocker (the part in red) or whatever it is called, some have a doorknob, though this one doesn't.  The seller also said each tube was tuned according to a piano.

I love all the details of both of these items, and I really like the idea of reusing items most people discard.  Anyway, these cool items came Tire Bird Feeders.  (Email address:
