Last Christmas Gifts
These are the last of the Christmas gifts I made for 2008. Camilla requested a bird feed but I couldn't quite figure out how to make the kind I wanted. We have so many squirrels here in Seattle I felt concerned about the food getting taken if the feeder wasn't the right kind. I ended up taking off the bottom plate of a feeder I purchased and replacing it with a plate I made from an old decorative copper plate and some tin ceiling tiles. I also made her garden markers for her herb garden from pieces of copper and wire hangers. I pounded out the names of the herbs with a letter set I purchased when I was taking a jewelry making class.
