No Good Deed, As They Say

The new bird feeder hanger is here and installed!!  It does the trick perfectly — thank you, Karen!!  The title of this post refers to the fact that I went down to the street to clean up the bird mess, and the second I got down there, guess what happened to me?  Mess on the head.

Feathered dudes, who is feeding you, hello???  The shower curtain I put down doesn’t cover all contingencies, apparently. Anyway, the downstairs is clean now, I am showered, and here are pictures of my new set-up.

View one.  I put down a new shower curtain, cleaned up the feeder and put seed in it to celebrate (I usually only fill it in the morning).  Two more pictures below.


The point was to get the feeder to hang over where I could put the shower curtain down so it actually catches more mess, and I didn’t think you could quite see that it’s working so I took a shot from a slightly different angle.


And then I thought it would be fun to show the cat’s eye view. I had to move it one pole back. The first pole I attached it to made it too close to the window, and Finney was beside himself. So yay!! Me and the birds are all set.

  1. I’m glad to be of some help at the cost of less than $10!

    And the plate you lust after is mocha ware. Here’s a link to a website that has a plate similar to what you saw (top of the cabinet.

    If it is antique, probably about $600. I say, stick to feeding the birds.

    And, told you the cats would become blase about the birds.

  2. Ha. There are just so many beautiful things in the world. Thankfully, I don’t really feel strongly about owning them. I actually start to feel weighed down if I have too much stuff.
