Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: How To Build A Birdhouse Video

I know this is a little out of the box on what I normally post about, but I was looking at all my birds the other day and waiting for the "summer residents" to show up and was thinking about birdhouses. We don't have birdhouses as most of our birds are ground nesters, but I thought for all of you that do have birds that use houses maybe you would like to see an easy way to build a nice birdhouse. I tried to find an easy video on it so I hope this one works for all of you. :)

Have a great week!

Colleen :)

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Vintage Spring Art

As you can tell from all my postings I love springtime and all the beautiful spring colors and pastels. :) After the long winter (and I mean LONG winter up here!) looking at all the spring colors just lifts the spirits. So......let's look at some vintage springtime art.......

This beautiful print from WHaroldHancock shows spring just waking up. All the pretty colors and flowers are beginning to show their faces. :)

Roses are a sure sign of spring and this Currier and Ives print from Angel Grace shows how pretty they can be. 

Look at the beautiful colors of the daffodils on this art plate from JaanasVintageHome!! The colors are just gorgeous!

And one of my favorite flowers of spring and summer are pansies and these two little vintage vases from HappyDaysAntiques show how pretty pansies are. 

All the flowers we have seen really makes me want to get out into the garden and start planting, but I have several weeks before I can do that. Hope some of you can get started now. :)

Happy planting!
