Music Birdhouse, Tissue Box & Wine Brick

becky_iaNovember 15, 2011

Here are also a couple of new pictures of some things I just finished up.

A music birdhouse, a black & white and red all over! Kleenex box, and a wine brick to use when hosting wine club.

The birdhouse was so much fun to make. When I found the china cups and plates at a second hand store for $3 for the set, you would have thought I found gold! The clerk asked me what I was going to do with them, and when I told her "break them up and put them back together", she must have thought I was nuts! And the handles of the cups were perfect for the perch!

The Kleenex box was an unfinished wood box that I first painted black. I put this on my desk at work and have received many nice comments.

The wine brick was also found at a second and store and I will use this as a centerpiece the next time I host the wine club I belong to. I think I will get a few comments from them too. (A wine brick is a holder for your bottle of wine)

ERNIE: I clicked on one of the photos, and it took me to BECKY's album. BECK - those are lovely, and so well worked. Loved the bed of flowers too. BTW - I wasn't able to backspace outta the album - had to get outta the forum and go back in.
