Before and After

Rain, rain, go away and come back after birding season!!! Oh wait, that’s pretty much over so never mind! This was a dismal bird watching season for us but we did have quite a flurry of activity in our back yard today. Besides the usual sparrows, northern cardinals and purple finches we had a female Rose-breasted Grosbeak, a male American Goldfinch, a hummingbird and a Baltimore oriole. The Oriole was feeding mostly from the shelled peanut feeder and sometimes at the Safflower feeder and then to the sugar water feeder. I can’t remember ever having an oriole eating peanuts before but I guess he needed the protein more than the sugar water.

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that we were so tired of a white vase with dried flowers that has sat in our living room (wasted space we don’t use it, we just clean it – blah). Anyway, we finally found some new dried flowers we liked at our last trip to Hobby Lobby in Port Huron, MI and I finally finished it. Here are the before and after pictures.

 
The vase is no longer white but has been sponged with brown, bronze, yellow and gold patio paint leaving it mostly brown in colour. Then I arranged the new flowers we bought, plus a few extras I had on hand. Joe really likes it too. He couldn’t believe the difference when I showed him the before and after picture. This was more fun and less expensive than buying something new.

Cheers

Violet
