So at the risk of totally looking inept, I thought I'd share an idea I have for an item I'm sending someone in an outdoor decorating swap. (If it doesn't work, I'll look silly... but hey, what the heck, right?)
Anyway, I know my swap partner wants some windchimes, and I also know she's spent a lot of time working on her cottage home. So I was thinking of getting a wooden birdfeeder similar to the shape of her home, paint it up in those colors, and then add interesting keys and door plates from our local salvage place to hang from the bottom as windchimes.
Does this idea sound clever or silly? How would you folks feel about receiving something like this? I originally was thinking of doing a silverware windchime, but I think the door hardware idea is more themic.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
