    Welcome from Deux-Montagnes, Quebec, Canada.  I love your bird bath.  I just went out and bought one.  I much prefer yours.  It is so pretty.

    Hi Lady Bird! I just LOVE your blue glass birdbath. I collect blue glass of all kinds,  and want to make one similar. I have a large vase like your middle section. Can’t tell exactly about the bottom section and the base. Looks like the bottom section is maybe clear vase with blue glass beads/stones in it??? What is the very bottom part? And where in the world did you find the wonderful top??? Anxiously waiting for your reply! Cyndi Lee

    Thanks, glad you like it!
    There are 4 sections to the birdbath. I found all of the main pieces including the top at local second hand stores.
    The base is a very heavy, thick, light blue, glass bowl. I flipped it upside down so it can be pressed into the dirt to help stabilize the birdbath.
    There is a clear glass vase that is between the base and the blue vase. I smashed blue and clear glass wine bottles that I had saved and filled the clear vase with that. If you do this, take precautions – wear goggles and gloves. I put the bottles between an old towel and smashed away with a hammer. I threw away the towel when I was finished.
