Fairy Door

Here's a fairy door I made from a piece of tree bark. It's in a hollow of a big tree in the kids' back yard.

Traveling Fairy House

This tiny Traveling Fairy House is a matchbox! There are various versions of this but I like this one from Polka Dot Daze.

Paper Gift Topper

LOVE this idea. I actually found this a while back and could not remember where I saw it - then I lost it! So glad I found it again - might have guessed it was Martha's people.

Half Tire See Saw

Great use for an old tire. We just painted the kids' tire swing Mediterranean blue. Now the "black" doesn't rub off on our hands and clothes any more. When we get tired of the tire swing we can always cut it in half - like this one from Ripe Green Idea

Lamp Shade Idea

This particular lamp is from Marie Claire Idees, What I like about it is the simple shapes - could be anything - it's the idea of taking something plain and making it your own by adding something simple that makes it personal.

Driftwood Boats

Craftberry Bush is one of my most favorite blogs. Everyday she comes up with simple, great ideas. I live on the coast and there is a marina at the end of my block. I love boats and nautical things. I think these would be simple to make and they are so pretty. See how at Craftberry Bush.

Bird's Nest Pendant

I love birds, bird's nest and nature in general. I found this little pendant very appealing and, guess what!? I think I can make one of these. Great instructions at livelaughphotograph. You could also make this into a brooch.
