Feeling crafty my son and I decided to add some color to our yard and offer sustinance to our feathered friends.  

We took these old rounded hubcaps, primed them and then painted them with different designs, just whatever we felt like at the time.  I drilled three holes in the sides of each hubcap and with some zinc plated screwes attached the chains to the hubcaps then chained them to an S hook and hung them from a sheppards hook in our back yard.

How cool.  I think that is really creative.  Recycling is always a plus.

Ugly. Is irrelevant. It is an immeasurable insult to a woman, and then supposedly the worst crime you can commit as a woman. But ugly, as beautiful, is an illusion. - Margaret Cho
