Thrift SCORES

Thrift SCORES

Awesome Goodwill haul yesterday… Sweet apothecary cabinet that I’m going to paint and store my essential oils in, Ben Seibel teacup, FANTASTIC pagoda-style double boiler, HUGE bag of wooden beads for a top secret project. Score!

More happy birds…

More happy birds...

And I wonder why birds flock to my yard…
Someone, either of the human or bird variety, stole the last “nest helper” I had… woe to me. BUT! I got this wee apple basket today at a friend’s yard sale and cut out the basket bottom and wove the front and back with wire, making sure to press down all the pointy edges with pliers. Filled it with selvage fabric, dryer lint, cheesecloth scraps and hemp string and will hang it in the back yard with all my other bird utopia items.
Yes, friends, you can even repurpose dryer lint. Hooray!
P.S. Hang it close enough to another branch so the birds can perch while they make their nest material selections!

Happy birds!

Happy birds!

Easiest bird-feeder ever… requiring only THREE supplies:
Wooden chopstick
String
Half an apple
Spear apple with chopstick and tie string so the whole thing will hang evenly.
Voila! Hang on a high limb for birds to nibble away at! Nothing easier…
Psst… Chopsticks come in pairs and one apple will make TWO halves. Double the happy, well-fed birds!
