Our visit visitor to our bird feeder made from a ketchup bottle and a ice cream container lid.
Sometimes a chore, like taking out the garbage to the road, can have its blessings. Today we retrieved a mitt full of wild raspberries! And of course, we shared with our feathered friends. They sure were curious about the red bump on the end of their perch!
A fun new project to mount on the wall of your ocean front cottage, or dock side railing, or anywhere else you like. The pattern includes additional line art to assist you in adding more detail to the silhouette if you want to. Choose to paint as little or as much detail as you want. Custom sizing available upon request.
We be chillin’ like fat rabbits in a field of clover on this day 🙂 (picture taken this morning on our front lawn).
A little bit of excitement for a holiday Monday morning. We were watching recently discovered bluejay birds nest within sight of our living room window. Then we heard a sound in the chimney. Maybe a bird trapped? I opened the rear damper so it could see the light down at the fire box. We had to wait a few minutes for it to make its way down. I opened the back damper of the stove and it made its way into the fire box…which still had old ashes in it. The bird didn’t appear to be too dirty. Don’t know what type of bird it was though. It was mostly dark with slight hints of a beautiful luminescent green.
Measuring about 2-1/2 inches tall, this fun toucan can be adorned to a knitted scarf or sweater in as little as 15 minutes. Scrap wood is all you need. Have a little bit of exotic wood leftover? Perfect for this type of scroll saw project.
Another one of these yellow fungi appeared overnight. Like the others, it will turn a bright yellow during today and then slowly fade. Apparently its edible to at least these birds. If anybody knows the name of the bird specie, let me know.
My first scroll saw project involving intarsia. Using 3/4″ pine and several types of stain I came up with a nice color combination.
