My birdies are finished, but not without my own personal drama. I don’t think I mod-podged them correctly and they bubbled up into something nasty. I got mad, complained like a baby, and threw them away. The next morning, Kyle pulled them out of the trash (it was a brand new trash bag mind you) and they looked marvelous! Who knew?
Before we had two pictures like this, one hanging next to the shower and the other sitting on the vanity.
Now this birdie,
and this birdie
to match our birdie shower curtain.
Our latest project: buttons!
I have a collection of vintage (some are just downright old) buttons. I didn’t spend time collecting them, but rather, inherited the lot. Regardless, they’re fabulous.
Kyle and I bought our Christmas tree last week, a fake, rustic, beauty of a tree. Imagine a telephone pole with branches from Pottery Barn.
We are turning my button collection into button garland for the tree. We are also going to make ornaments out of the larger, fancier buttons.
What should we use as a tree topper?
Kyle and I were sitting at the table last night, stringing buttons onto cotton string, totally engrossed in our project. I asked Kyle if he ever thought in a million years he’d be doing this. He said no, and he definitely didn’t think he’d enjoy it. What a little crafty nester he’s turned in to.
