Christmas Tree for the Birds 2019 ♥

Every year I decorate this tree full of edible bird ornaments. Click on this link for all the DIY ornaments: A Christmas Tree for the Birds
I'm not sure who enjoys the tree the most - me or my backyard birds!

I added a new ornament to the tree this year! - It's a suet snowflake!

I purchased Silicone Snowflake Molds from Amazon - $9.99 for 2. Then I made a suet mix from:

2 cups lard
4 cups white cornmeal
1/2 cup flour

Melt it all together and spoon the mixture into the molds. Refrigerate until solid. I couldn't make a hole in the snowflake without it falling apart, but it fits perfectly in a canning jar lid.

 I invite you to follow my Facebook page to see the products available in our shop, my DIY projects and more photos of my backyard birds.

Silver Dollar City 2018

We were so excited to be vendors at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri this year! We only live about an hour from the park and have visited there yearly since childhood. Never imagined we be dressed in character and selling our art! The staff was so hospitable, the weather was perfect and our neighbor vendors were the best! It was fun demonstrating our craft using hand tools, visiting with park guests and of course - riding roller coasters in costume! The best part was that our local friends could visit and our family could spent a day with us at the park!

The Blue Sky Bistro ♥

I've added a fun blue glass bottle birdseed feeder to the Etsy shop! They won't be a regular - only when I happen upon a blue Skyy Vodka bottle at the recycle center - will these feeders be available.

I love the color of these bottles accented with the copper wire and pendant... 
I think the birds approve too!

Air Plants ♥

New this year at the market - Air Plants!

I have super cute glass orbs that my customers can make a hanging terrarium using moss, sand, rocks, shells - then top it off with a variety of air plants. I also have wreaths, wine corks and an assortment of other ways to display these fun plants. 

Air plant care: 
 Place in indirect light – avoid direct sunlight.
Water 2-3 times a week. Submerge briefly or use a spray bottle.
Use a liquid fertilizer – ¼ strength – twice a month
