This is one of my favorites. I found it at a farm auction just down the road from our home last fall. I've driven past this quaint farm almost everyday since we moved here ten years ago, just waiting for them to have an auction, estate sale something. Finally the sign went up and my mind began to dream of all the possible treasures to be found. One very cool, crisp saturday morning, husband and I set out. I spotted this chicken feeder and knew it needed to come home with me.
They say "the early bird gets the worm", but in this case it was more like who could outlast the cold weather. Finally my treasure came up for auction, husband looked at me and asked "how much?". I said "until you get it!" His eyes lit up, he loves to bid.
My original plan was to put actual candles inside, I had it pictured in my head. I soon realized I wanted to enjoy it each night at Christmas time and a string of lights attached to a light switch was much more practical.
