Easy Outdoor Projects

Every year at this time…it’s the same thing.

A precious bird builds her nest on our column on the front porch.

Right above my rocking chair.

And every year I don’t have the heart to remove her nest.

I just let her build away and hatch her babies right there beside my front door.

It makes my rocking chair a very dangerous place to sit for a few weeks…

…but I’m ok with that.

So here are some easy outdoor projects to welcome some birds to your house!

Vintage Front Porch

Ladder Birdfeeder

I like to welcome birds to my yard.

I feed them.

Salvaged Chair Bird Bath

And I give them plenty of places to bath.

Tomato Cage Bird Bath

Because if they’re going to be around…

…I at least want them clean. 🙂

Summer Front Porch

And then when Summer rolls around the birds will have moved on.

And we’ll wait for the Spring for the process to start all over again.

Back Yard Fire Pit

So for now we will just enjoy the back yard!

Life to the full!

  1. Every time I see that photo of your special back yard oasis I’m envious. Looks so nice. Be kind of romantic to sit out there with hubs alone. Nice with kids too but nicer with hubs alone, lol. Happy Easter

  2. Great ideas! Love the ladder feeder! We would love for you to link up with us at Your Designs This Time! http://elizabethjoandesigns.com/2014/04/desings-time-no-5/

  3. I love the touches and ideas. I feed birds too, but not with seed, with dehydrated mealworms. I have now a couple of bluebirds that come to me when I am putting food out. So much fun! The other birds that were here a week ago, have moved on…the crowned sparrows and a few others…it was delightful to hear the chatter in the bushes when I came out, not, it is quite quiet….except for the sweet talking of the bluebirds that have claimed the backyard as theirs.

  4. LOL. My mom has a similar problem each year. A while back she had placed a small decorative bird house in her covered porch area on a shelf right above her favorite chair. It wasn’t long until it had a feathered friend in it which chirped at her every time she would rest in her chair.

  5. Melissa,

    What a fun inspiration collection! Love the path in your back yard!

    You go girl!

  6. Hello Melissa,

    Your front porch is so pretty. Char

  7. I love your front porch – I could sit and rock for hours – with a hat on! 🙂 But I really love your backyard! So beautiful and romantic!

  8. What great outdoor spaces and projects. I’m featuring your porch on my Friday Features from this week’s Inspire Me Monday party. Thanks for linking up!
