20 Upcycled Bird Feeders & Baths

Ever since we moved into our house, I’ve been mildly obsessed with making our yard as bird-friendly as possible. I love having a yard full of chirping birds…and I geek out when a new species is spotted.

Upcycling in the Great Outdoors: Favorite Yard & Garden Projects

Upcycling in the Great Outdoors: Favorite Yard & Garden Projects

As the last hard frost date quickly approaches and local garden centers start coming to life, I am reminded of some of the fun repurposing projects I did for our yard last year! As you may recall, our yard qualified as Certified Wildlife Habitat which is something I’m proud of…AND I’m always looking for new ways to bolster our certification. I’m just as excited about getting my garden beds in shape for the Spring planting season and watching our azaleas bloom in Technicolor.

In other words? I’m ready for S-P-R-I-N-G!

I’m already planning new projects- porch décor…bird feeders…gardening “helpers”…BUT I can’t help but reminisce about the upcycling projects for our yard that I finished last year. I picked out of a few of my favorites…perhaps you can use these as inspiration for the upcoming yard sale and vintage festival season!Read more ›

You may recall in this post that I recently visited the Goodwill on Broughton in Savannah, GA.

AND you may recall from this post that I’ve got a yen for creating more wildlife habitat options in our backyard. Well, my friends, the time has come to finally transform the clock into its new purpose in life- a birdhouse!Read more ›

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 ›
