Maybe it's the unseasonably warm weather this week, but I can't stop thinking about Spring - the clean air, the sense of hope, and the birds. I thought I'd take a look and see what the lovely people of Etsy had to offer in the way of bird feeders and then I found some of the craziest/coolest feeders I've ever seen. These one of a kind bird feeders are made from an assortment of materials - acrylic, steel, and rubber - and are all handmade and designed by Jenny of Red Yellow and Blue Ink. Unhappy with the styles that were offered in stores, Jenny set out to design her own bird feeders. She's been selling them via word of mouth since 2005 and recently added them to her Etsy shop.
About the feeders: "This is my own design and I have made this feeder using a bevy of various hand tools. The hanging wire is stainless steel cable. A variety of colorful rubber washers on upper and underside of the roof. The body is made of cell cast acrylic, a great material that can handle extreme temperatures hot and cold. The non-absorbent acrylic is also great for maintaining a clean feeder, which is very important for the health and well-being wild birds."
I don't know about you, but I am just floored by the ingenuity and straight up style of her designs!
