Birthday art doll

A little while ago it was my sister in laws birthday so I decided to make another birthday art doll. 
I used some scraps of linen, denim and an old doily. The buttons used to be in my grandmothers old button box.
In the front it says: Cherish the moments and the years will mend themselves.
In the back I sewed a personal birthday message.

Ceramics pendants

I found this great plate from the 60/70s in my local secondhand store. I just loved the pattern but sadly, when I brought it home, it split in half.  I just could not bring myself to just throw it out so I decided to try to cut out the patterned pieces and make them into pattern. It was actually harder than it looked, but after a few trial and errors I got the hang of it. The result is these 6 pendants that will come with me to the spring market at Tou scene on the 11th of Mars.

Bird feeders

Its been a strange winter with relatively high temperatures.  But that was until yesterday when I woke up at the whole town was white.  And for a few minutes I did actually enjoy the beauty of it… but then I remembered that I had to get to work.  I participated chaos and I’ve never been more right in my life… it took me 2 hours to get to work and that trip would normally take between 20-40 minutes.

I’m not the only one struggling with the winter weather. Birds have a hard time finding something to eat, so last weekend I decided to try to make my own bird feeders.

I melted some food fat/oil/lard and stirred in nuts and seeds.

pored the mixture into paper cups with ribbon in it and waited for it to set.

I then removed the cups, hung it from my witch hazel and the birds have been all over it from the first moment.

I was hoping to get a picture of them sitting in the tree enjoying the food, but it was very hard to get close enough and also the curly branches worked as a sort of camouflage for the little brown birds. But the tree is filled with the little things all day and it’s a pretty sight J
