From Bank to Birdhouse: A Log Cabin for the Birds

It’s been a while since I created a bird project for our yard…so I decided to combine this year’s “Cabin” theme with an outdoors project. Since we always have nesting wrens and chickadees at our house, I wanted to make them a new, alternative abode.Read more ›

Thrifted Glass Lid Hanging Bird Bath

Thrifted Glass Lid Hanging Bird Bath

Once upon a time, we had a hanging bird bath, the concept of which I really liked. BUT, it was plastic and an absolute bear to clean and refill- needless to say, it didn’t come with us when we moved!

Eco-DIY: Certified Wildlife Habitat

Eco-DIY: Certified Wildlife Habitat

When we were house-shopping last year, I fell in love with the backyard of the home we ultimately purchased. I loved the house, too, but the serenity of the yard- despite being smack dab in the middle of a suburban community- was impossible to resist. So when I found out about The National Wildlife Federation’s Garden For Wildlife Program, I knew our yard was a perfect candidate to be Certified Wildlife Habitat.

So maybe this isn’t your typical post from me! BUT I don’t know how well-known this program is, so I definitely wanted to write up a post on it in case ya’ll want to work towards certifying your own yards!Read more ›
