All The Little Birdies Say Cheap Cheap Cheap

Finches love Nyjer thistle seed but it's really expensive when you are buying a bag a week for them. So we decided to just start buying the less expensive sunflower seeds.

To our surprise, it's like they didn't even notice the difference.

Some pets get to go to pet day care, but some have to stay home and pretend.

Actually, Henri and Simon were watching t.v. while I was trying to solve a major eyesore problem in our basement studio. This is an old freezer that we keep our bait in for our lobster traps in the summer. It's the only spot we have room to keep it, so I had to figure out how I could incorporate it into the studio.

I had some leftover metallic copper paint and a few wooden letters that spell out raku. Problem solved.

And during the winter months when we leave it unplugged, we will use it to store our clay.

Great bird photos. And now your freezer looks so special and shiny.

We buy a 40 pound bag of sunflower seeds and a 40 pound of mixed wild bird seeds and mix them. Every bird gets something they like and a bonus is that the deer like the seeds too and will clean up what spills on the ground.
