Old Yellow Cup For Mellow Yellow Monday

This old tin cup belonged to my grandfather. Grampy always worked in the woods during his lifetime since he was a young boy nine years old.
Today I hang it on a tree, as Grampy once did I"m sure, sometimes I put birdseed in it.. Other times I fill it with water thinking maybe a bird will drink from it. It's a nice old cup, now being a bit rusted with age and use.

Oh, I just love the thought of keeping an ordinary item from a loved one and reusing it for nature.

A lovely family heirloom put to good use. I think your Grampy would have liked that very much.
