DIY: Easy Birdbath

DIY stone birdbath

I wanted to share this easy do-it-yourself project in case there is someone looking to make a birdbath that is both easy and affordable.

1 terra cotta saucer

Clear silicone or other glue

Spray paint for the base (I used Krylon black matte)

Course texture spray paint (I used Krylon stone black granite)

Clear spray paint to seal the birdbath

Mornings in Walnut Creek

I’ve lived in Ohio my entire life, but I’d never visited Walnut Creek until the spring of 2016. Located in Holmes county, the world’s highest Amish population, Walnut Creek is a gorgeous town to visit any season of the year. I’ve visited the area three times since and will be back again this September. (Someday I hope to live here. 🙂 ) It is an incredibly peaceful place that always warms my heart.

These photos were all taken during the early morning hours on various trips to Walnut Creek. While many vacationers like to sleep in (including my family), I make it a priority to wake up early, grab some coffee, and head outside to watch the sunrise among the fog. I feel at one with nature and my God who created it, and I cherish every second during this time.
