My neighbor gave me this old rusty birdfeeder that once belonged to his grandmother.  It's just my style!

It was made by the Tunlaw Corporation.  It is now a part of MY NEW RUSTIC BIRDHOUSE display for this year.

When I searched Tunlaw Corp. birdfeeder on Google, I found this 1962 advertising photo/postcard for sale on Ebay.

It was once green!

I won't be displaying my old birdhouses, on the rail of my deck under the tree, this year.  I chose to assemble a few crates, a fence picket, and an old grain screen to display them upon.

Hooks were added to backs of three of them to hang on the screen.  I had to add a small shim to back of the white birdhouse to make it hang straight up and down because of its roof overhang.

A bucket of nicotiana also sits on one of the crates.

Lots of rustic wood with a great patina here!

More crates, and a fence picket displaying birdhouses. The bucket is planted with double impatiens.

My garden fork/birdhouse project is stuck in the back of the bucket.

My display makes a pretty great privacy screen for the deck!

Most of these old birdhouses were from garage sales, with a few from antique shops/consignment shops.
