Okay so for those of you who might actually still have some old cd's lying around- this is the perfect craft (assuming you no longer listen to them). And for you young in's- go hit up a thrift store! We have been super excited to add onto our zest little garden. From new plantings and labels to garden art- the list keeps growing! I think one of the best parts about gardens are that anything really goes! After all, it's supposed to be an adventure and show growth and creativity, right? So here is a little combo or creativity mixed with recycling too! Original Blog Post Photo Credit Anya McInroy
I've had an idea in my head to make a chime for quite some time now. I finally got everything together that I thought I would need. The large pot was a gift. For awhile I was using it as a vase and then it got set aside. The little cups I've had FOREVER sitting on the top shelf of a cabinet. When it clicked that they all had the same design (flowers and blue handles) I started thinking more about a chime. I studied the chimes I already have and decided I needed a weight to swing around and something in the middle that would knock around in the cups. I also needed something the cups could hang from...like my rusty Bath and Body soap holder!

That was exactly my dilemma when I was choosing bedding for my grandson's Bedroom Makeover. I knew the look I wanted...I even found the perfect bedding at Pottery Barn Kids. I just didn't have that Pottery Barn Kids budget to go along with it. So, I resorted to Plan B and C and D. :) I shopped around and found everything I needed, to get the same look, only at a much lower cost. Here is a sneaky-peaky of the room thus far, and the bedding I chose.
Who doesn’t like a good knock-off project? I know I do, because: 1. There is no satisfaction like having the dreamy decor item you want, but without having to spend a lot of money for it. 2. It is way more satisfying than just going and buying the real deal, as there is a challenge in trying to DIY it. And oh boy…do I love challenges like that! This is exactly why I was so excited when I came across Pottery Barn’s Lilian Vase the other day: it is beautiful and comes with a matching price tag! The vase has a Mediterranean feel to it which I love, and it silently screams for a knock-off challenge…which I readily accepted!
Can't afford Pottery Barn furniture in that gorgeous gray wash or driftwood finish, but love the look? I've found an easy way to transform any piece of furniture to give it that coastal beachy vibe for next to nothing!
No matter the season, the thrift store always has treasures just waiting to be found! I especially love shopping during gardening season though because the possibilities for planters and garden decor abound. All it takes is a little patience and a wide-open imagination.

Since I published my DiY Garden Decor post here on Hometalk recently, a lot of you have asked if I had a tutorial for the copper coil wind chimes. I didn't document the chimes pictured in that post, but I decided to make another one and document the process in the following tutorial. I hope you find it helpful.
Squirrels love bird seed and if they get into your bird feeder they will empty it in a day! It becomes too expensive! The gears started turning and got me thinking about how I could build a diy bird feeder that only birds could enter but still be a nice addition to look at in the garden.
Finally our side yard makeover is done. And oh boy, did it turn out beautifully! Hopefully, Greg will share the reveal pictures soon, but until then, I wanted to share something unique from our side garden: our new DIY waterdrop solar lights!
