In the Pink with Vintage Gardening

I walked through the house and picked up items I thought would work. The pink theme was unintentional but demonstrates how something as simple as colour can unify otherwise unrelated items.

Birdfeeders don't have to be large and chunky. Or purchased from a specialty store. Little song birds (and squirrels) will make themselves at home feeding on seed in a simple thrift store melmac plate on an old iron lamp base turned candle pillar
