My brain has been tumbling and swirling all week. Can’t seem to focus and concentrate on one thing or another. I have started 7 or 8 projects and honestly, only finished 3.
For some silly reason, I felt the need to make bird seed ornaments. They are super-duper easy, quick, turn out perfectly and make you feel like you accomplished something of worth. When the Red, Red, Robins, or the Stellar Jays, or the Finches come around, now I have something charming and home made to offer up.
There is a blog I like to follow. The sweet girl who writes the stories and takes the pictures is Emily. http://www.emilys-little-world.blogspot.com/ Every single time I stop by and visit her blog, she never fails to make me smile. She has two (maybe three kiddos by the time you read this), she is creative, funny, honest, sweet and finds time to make some charming things. I learned this recipe from her.
Here are some pictures of how it all turned out. Easy ingredients………..knox geletin and 1/4 cup water plus one cup of bird seed. You need a straw for a hole and a cookie cutter for a shape. Grab some twine and ta-da………….project done and done.
Made me feel old-fashioned and charming to make such cute things to hang in the trees around our deck.
