bird cage

So I was at Ross the other day and this was sitting all alone on a shelf. 
When I saw the price tag I didn't even think twice..

$9.99, not bad considering every other bird cage I have come across is about $29!

so what I did of course is paint it white! I kinda think I should have left it that metal rusty color but too late now.
So here it sits with so many possibilites, I can fill it with burlap balls, for easter I can put pretty fancy eggs in it. I also saw a white owl at Rod Works too...

So it just sat empty for a couple weeks because sometimes if I can't decide then I just don't do anything. Then My sister n law came over and said "why don't you just put some lemons and limes in it?"    BRILLANT and SiMpLe!  and it goes so well with my pillows.

So here it is with the lemons and I'm not digging it.  do they look rotten to you?  The other thing that is weird is when I put lemons in it the other day I could have sworn there were 8 and now we are down to 4? What happen to the other lemons? Who would eat not only a fake lemon but a rotten one? 
So off to plan B...
Then I found these pine cones and Bed Bath and Beyond for $1.29  And then I found this owl at a local shop...What do you think?

I kinda feel bad for him, he's way to cute to be locked up in a cage. I think I might go back to the lemons.
What do you think?

  1. The owl does look a bit sad in his cage - maybe he'd enjoy a lemon or two??

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
