I wanted to show my new projects for today. They are probably elementary for some, but a "project" for me. Honey Bunny will most likely end up doing the labor part. Right, Sweetie? I have always wanted one of these birdhouses ever since I visited my Uncle-in-law's beach cottage in Salisbury Beach, Mass. Every single cottage had a birdhouse-on-a-stick on the sand. Well, I thought it would look adorable in my west coast cottage dwelling. So off to Michaels I went on Saturday and spent the big $6.00. The best part was a lady ahead of me had a coupon for 25 % off and did not use it. She asked if I wanted it. Like anyone would say 'No'. It helped because you know that it's impossible to buy just one thing in THAT store. It always makes you feel less "guilty" when you use a coupon, doesn't it? The other project is turning a $1.99 teacup and saucer into a bird feeder-- minus the bird feed since Picklechips, our garden tiger, is unfortunately a bird killer. So this bird feeder will be strictly for looks--aren't most pretty things? My Sweetie will pop theses babies on-a-stick today after I paint one and glue the other. I'll post pictures when they are put in their new spots shining in all their glory. By the way, a little side note: I am thinking that when I take pictures for my blog, it's all about presentation. Well, notice my little helper? Now you know my little secrets behind the scenes.
