Are you like me? Do you have lists and lists of things you hope to accomplish?
If a project you just finished wasn't already on the list, do you add it to the list just so you can cross it off? That, my dears, is what I call "list obsession". And I've got it, BAD!!
Anyway, one of the things on my list was to turn these:
Which I did by using this:
Gorilla glue is every one's go-to glue! It's pretty tough stuff! I bought some to try since we had never used it before.
In addition to the plate and bowl which I found at the drug store for $1 apiece, I purchased a 4 foot length of 1/2" copper pipe and an end cap to fit. I glued the end cap to the center of the plate
Then my husband clamped it together for me for about one hour.
Then we glued the footed bowl to the plate, and when the glue was dry I popped the whole thing onto the pipe (that's what the end cap is for).A super easy, and instantly gratifying project. The birds were dining at their new cafe' in a few hours.
The drying and waiting took the longest, and waiting is always hardest for me!
I think this is a cute addition to the front garden.
The birdies like it, too!
I've seen scrub-jays, robins, and tiny little finches eating their dinner here just in the last few hours.
Mission accomplished, and crossed off the list!
An urgent request, which my friend Kelee Katillack asked me to share with you regarding the oil spill on the gulf coast:
Will you join me in a 30 minute on-line prayer and positive energy vigil this Wednesday night? All you have to do is send your thoughts out, during this time, for a Divine solution to this global emergency... for more information go to the Katillac Shack and read Kelee's post.
I will be joining Kelee in the vigil on Wednesday, and hope you will also find a way to participate. Together, I believe we can make a difference!
I'm linking to DIY Day at A soft place to Land, Trash to Treasure Tuesday at Reinvented., and Thrifty Treasures at Tales from Bloggeriteville.
Thanks Kimba, Kimm and Leigh!
Until next time,
