My father-in-law has said that I make things more complicated than they need to be.
Sometimes I guess I do.
Like when it comes to our yard…
It takes me days to “decorate” our yard and my gardens every year. It’s ever evolving in a manner of speaking…new junk = new garden decor. Remember the old saying: ‘Your garbage may be someone else’s treasure’?
Yes…my yard is living proof. I have dilapidated bird houses, old pans, old faucets, a few faded decor items…you name it. But they look lovely now! I love repurposing things, giving them a new home, and showing them a little love…even though they’re old, faded and worn out (hmmmm…maybe I’m describing myself?). Read more
See this cute little hanging extender?
Well, I made it last week while Elena was here.
I love the little Hummingbird feeder, but it hung just way too high – we couldn’t see the little hummers feeding!
So off I went to find wire and my needle nose pliers.
Grab an end and twist…the other end and twist…
It took all of 10 seconds.
I was so proud of myself!
I very loudly pronounced “I’M SO CRAFTY!”
Elena cocked her little head, looked at me and said “You’re so cwabby?”
I replied…”NO, NO, NOOOOOO”…”I’m so crafffffttttttyyyyy”.
She looked up at me again and said “Oh”.
And went off to play some more.
So much for my big proud moment…
It turned into a silly, giggle moment.
That’s ok, those are much more fun anyway!
I hope you have a good giggle today!
ps…Now that I look at it in the picture, I really could make it so much better…I might have to get craftier (not cwabbier). 🙂
