This entry was submitted by Marti from Sew-licious shared it last week links party. How classy, fun & totally for the birds is this diy idea! A chandelier bird-feeder. I have to find a chandelier now to make one & you might like to also!

Marti lives in Texas. She has her own cleaning business and spends a lot of time thrift store shopping, crafting and visiting your crafts! Marti is in college part-time working on a Masters degree. She is a mom to a daughter 25 & has 4 kitties. She has done animal rescues and placed about 50 kittens in new homes.

Hutch Re-Purpose

Alexis from Persialou  shared this hutch re-purpose is pretty, but even more brilliant is how Alexis lined the back inside. She used a shower curtain explaining how it was the perfect width. Just cutting to size & then mod poged it on. Maybe you have a hutch that needs updating or you’ll find a fixer upper down the road, then you’ll be glad you happened along Alexi’s post.

Alexis, a work-at-home mother of two (soon to be three!) and lifelong crafter. One summer, when she was about nine or ten, her great grandmother taught her to crochet. She enjoyed making a few small projects and then quickly forgot everything. A few years ago she was wandering the aisles of my local craft store &  decided to pick up a crochet book. Since then, Alexis been hooked (pun totally intended). When you visit her your find tutorials for quilts, crafts, cooking & more.
