when the temperature rises, i begin to feel envious of the birds who are wise enough to live near bird baths. what i wouldn’t give to be able to dunk my head whenever i feel like it! bird baths are a win-win situation though, i guess, because the birds get refreshed and we get the enjoyment of watching an adorable birdie swim party. has created a simple, modern bird bath that would look great in any yard, and it’s actually only one of three bird bath designs she has posted on her blog, all within a very reasonable budget. i live so close to i might have to run out and make this tonight! you can read more about the bird bath and see instructions and . thanks, karen! –

i’ve been too busy to go thrifting lately, but before & after lamps are making me regret it. she’s transformed some cheap old lamps into bright modern ones, with just a little paint. the bold, solid color really accentuates the shape of the lamp; whereas before it seemed rather drab, now i would not be surprised if it is the star of the room! you can see more of her process (not to mention some more fun makeover projects) . nice work, jen!
