As a lover of birds, I absolutely adore this chair makeover.  Love the colour of the chair and the fabric on the seat and of course the little birdie on the arm!  From Girl in the Garage.

Love, LOVE this!  I learned a lot of packing tips when I worked at the Manor, but this article on Two Twenty One is fabulously full of lots of handy tips and tricks to use to maximize the space in your suitcases when travelling!

I am loving this printable chart (freebie) from Design Sponge.  If you have ever wanted to know how to dye things using natural ingredients, this is for you.

No instructions but how hard can it be?   Lovely bird food hanging thingie.   The birds will devour this and it's cute as well.   Found on Skona Hem.

I love, Love, LOVE this beautiful gypsy shawl I found on Ravelry!  It's very unsual and I think it's very pretty.

With a little bit of ingenuity, some paint, pickle jars and some decorative knobs you can have some really pretty storage for the dressing table or bath.  From eighteen25.

  4. Hi, Marie! I just love Sandra Cherry Heart's blog--and her crochet patterns! *swoon* I bought a crochet shrug pattern from her shop, but have yet to try it. Those pastries look so good--will have to hop over and see about those. We could use a treat. Sadly our little cube freezer in the basement conked out this week…and sadder still, we had to throw away a good bit of food. :o( Sooo we’re freezer shopping this weekend… LOL! Wishing you, Todd, Mitzie... and your new student-lodger! :o) ((HUGS))

  5. So fun! I've seen the hanging apple for the birds thingie before. Would love to make one. xoxo

  6. Thanks everyone for your comments! I am playing catch up this morning as I was away until last evening and just exhausted when I got home! I do so enjoy finding these things and sharing them with you and it makes me happy to think that you like them too! xxoo


Your comments mean the world to me, and while I may not be able to address each one individually, each one is important to me and each one counts. Thanks so much!
