Here are just a few little projects on my ever-growing list:
How darling are these teacup bird feeders??? - We'll have a small front porch and back patio at our new place, and plenty of windows with adorning trees. I'd love to have a bird and hummingbird feeder, not just because it makes me feel like I'm in a Disney movie to have birds flitting about my house, but because I love how batshit the cats get when they spot a bird (or the Goodyear Blimp, in Elvis's case).
Speaking of animals, we'll have my two cats, of course, but also Colin's beloved Corgi. I plan on making and installing these freaking awesome suitcase cat beds up high along the windowsill, so the cats will have a place to retreat when the high energy of the Corgi gets to be a bit too much. Lets hope that they utilize them when they need a moment, instead of resorting to a clawed smack in her darling muzzle.
Bread & Butter Pickles - B&B are my absolute FAVORITE kind of pickles, and to make my own just seems like it would be so damn fulfilling. Aside from these, though, I'd love to make my own jam, these caramels, sauerkraut, kombucha tea, flavoured liqueurs...the list goes on and on.
I'm kind of a plant junkie, thanks to my mother who has the greenest damn thumb in world. It's been a long time since I've had any kind of outdoor space to myself, so I plan to take full advantage of it. These awesome homemade vases will be great for snipping off some sprigs from my outdoor plants, and adorning the house with. The look pretty easy to make, too, and would make a great hostess or housewarming gift, no? They also remind me of Nikola Tesla, whom I am endlessly fascinated with.
Tell me, what DIY projects have you been dying to tackle? Maybe I'll do them myself and you can live vicariously through me (which I'm sure sounds totally awesome to you...pffft)!
