I know you've seen these before!  But, I think my hubby perfected them!  He drills the tea cup & saucer on a small lathe with a glass drill bit and then mounts them on all thred...with a piece of rubber placed between the nut on bolt (inside the cup), so they can be used for bird baths, or bird feeders. It's a kick to watch the birds sit on the saucer and enjoy their seed! 

We've also started making Gravy Boat bird feeders and people seem to love them!
