Bird feeders are on my list of items to create as well so birds feel welcome in your garden. I'm always thinking of new ways to handcraft a feeder that useful and decorative, like my chair feeding baskets.

The inspiration for creating bee houses came about when watching a documentary on those wonderful pollinators (bees) whom we need desperately in our gardens in order for fruits and vegetables to produce. So invite them in too!
