Met Monday - birds and cherry reds...

Monday Nights....Garbage goes out. Also Curbside pickup items.
Walking the dogs around the neighborhood, one never knows what will be waiting to be snatched up!

Today I am joining up with Susan with a very simple makeover, a Metamorphosis
created from one of those "finds."

You'll find the party here:

Last Winter, I found two black iron planter baskets sitting amongst a lot of throwaways . Hmmm... Surely I could do something with those. They were perfectly good.

I finally got around to creating with one of them!

Take one planter.

Turn it over.
Super glue or gorilla glue one lone little birdie sitting around the house to the bottom (now turned into the top)!

Spray Paint a very cheerful cherry RED!

Take one wooden pedestal....

Add one yellow plate.

Find a favorite item to display under your "new and unique" cloche! Another pop of red in a yellow kitchen!

Stand back...Smile...Feel the wheels turning...uh-oh...change is coming again!
Yes, I do believe I will add chicken wire to this one for the finishing touch. Change is fun. Especially if it is in your nest...

Thanks to all who dropped by. Flit over to Susan's and see lots more Met Monday makeovers...

Blessings to all.

Very creative! I love to decorate!
I'm glad to know I'm not the only
one who goes through other people's
stuff on pickup day! A friend of
mine found a beautiful wooden rocker
and all it needed was some paint.
I wish I had seen it first. Last
week I found some lovely lavender
flower pots, a pretty cotton afghan,
and a little ladder to decorate with!

Julie, I love what you did with this. You really came up with a great way to create something beautiful for your kitchen.

Thanks for your continued prayers and your sweetest ever encouraging comments. I am thankful beyond words to call you my friend! What if we had never met? Girl, that would be awful:)

Have a blessed day my sweet friend! HUGS!

You need chicken wire for your "fixer-upper" project in the garage, too. ;)

Darling! And to think you dared to take a chance and GORILLA GLUE it all together....that is GENIUS and a leap of faith!! The top of my bird-bath cracked over the winter, but the base was intact. A friend gave me a concrete-look bunny as part of my b-day gift.....I bought aquarium glue and presto! glued one to the other. It now peaks out amongst my bee-balm and looks pretty sweet, I think. It is such fun to salvage pretty pieces like this : ) Nice job!!!

Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
It's on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Wonderful choice of colors!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I'm
assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
