I received a birdhouse from a friend this week and re-did it to live on the hammock post.
It was originally a plain wooden birdhouse, nothing particularly special about it.
Maisie and I spray painted it purple, painted the brackets a hot pink, then attached it to the top of the post.
I wasn’t happy with it, so I drew a Hamsa which is good luck against evil eye in many faiths and cultures, using sharpies. I did it freehand and it would have looked better, but Maisie insisted on swinging on the hammock, shaking the post as I drew.
I was perched precariously on a step stool at the time- and I have really bad vertigo lately from weird ear crystal issues- so I just wanted to get this done with.
I love the way it turned out! It’s looks pretty hippy dippy 🙂
The garden/landscaping project continues!
We had a forlorn little terracotta garden rabbit that was hidden in the brush, unpainted, and I wanted to paint it and give the poor old thing a makeover.
he was originally something like the above- I didn’t take a before picture, though.
Maisie INSISTED on choosing the spray paint colors this go ’round, so he had to be hot pink. I didn’t do the greatest job with the spray painting, I honestly just wanted to get it over with. However, it looked really creepy without ‘real’ looking eyes, so the child insisted Mr. Bun get them.
I didn’t have any craft paint, so we used sharpies, which turned out to her satisfaction, as far as hot pink bunnies go.
The made-over Mr Bun
he also got a nose and mouth
He still looks a little sad and lonely, but at least he now has pizzazz and eyes.
Maisie was very pleased with this project, so all’s well that end’s well!
