Dress Form

My dress form is one I found at a yard sale a few years back at a yard sale for 4 dollars, she has been moved upstairs to my daughters unused room that I am slowly making into my sewing and crafting room. So after Christmas I took of my dress forms coat and decked her out in only some neckwear.

since I like phtotography I icluded different effects of the same pic.

The last one is my fav, which do you like?

Junkin for the Birds

 I found this idea on pinterest and was a fun little project to use up odd bits of yarn for birds to build their nests nice and cozy! I wrapped the yarn around my hand and then cut it off at the top and bottom this made about 4 inch strips.
 I had this wire thing I got free out of a free box at a yard sale, it looks like a pocketbook it probably had gift hand lotion in it at one time.  I believe the one on pinterest used a suet bird feeder, so if you have some scrap yarn look around your junk stash and see if you can find something that you can use, all it needs is holes for the birds to pick their favorite color and something for the birds to hold on to.
 I did add some spanish moss in the bottom jsut cause I had it also raffia could be used for a more natural materials.I used more yarn to tie it to a tree near a window, hoping to see some birdies make a visit!
