I have been pondering this year and racking my pea brain on what to do. When I finally decided, I ordered the necessary ingredients...and waited, and waited......nothing in the mail! Today was the final day...tomorrow is the "Big Event"! (I'm not going to share my original idea...I'll post it later if the stuff ever comes). Oh, I had plan "B" sort of, which was to make a cute pillow or sachet or something cool out of burlap since it's so 'hot' right now. I had the stuff...but not the ambition to get out the sewing machine. Sooo....last night I was blog hopping, praying for inspiration for plan "C" just in case the mailman was once again a disappointment today. I found a really cute blog (http://blomsterverkstad.blogspot.com/) with a post for a bird feeder....alas....Plan C! Could be done fairly quickly and I had most of the stuff...just sent hubby to the store for apples and cranberries. Luckily, also I had found the cutest tea towels at Ikea a few weeks back for $.49 and purchased a dozen....so I also had a way to wrap the gifts......so here's the pics!
"For the Birds"
I always like to make edible ornaments for an outside tree for the birds this time of year!
~ Wire, Apple, Cranberries, Sweet Annie ~
Cello bags with a little shred in the bottom. I have had these vintage bird cards for many years....perfect!
~ Tea towel gathered with ticking and a piece of greenery ~
~ All packed up...and ready to go ~
So I need to get some sleep....have to be up very early to meet up with the gals driving together....we've got about a 3 hour drive to be there by 11!
I'll post pics of the day this weekend....
