UNIQUE BIRDHOUSES from REPURPOSED FINDS

One of our favorite things to do is to find ways to use vintage and discarded finds.  These birdhouses are the perfect way to do just that.  Once again, thrift stores and garage sales are your best friends when it comes to projects like this.

SHABBY, TATTERED DIY FLAG

We've been seeing these great shabby flags on Pinterest and absolutely love them.  So of course, we felt a need to make one.  These are a wonderful way to use some of those scrap fabrics, ribbons, buttons, etc., you have stored away in your craft room.  We're assuming you hoard those items like we do!

DIY NESTS

I find bird nests to be miraculous!  It's absolutely amazing that a little bird with only its beak and instincts can build such an intricate little home...a soft spot to lay her eggs and raise her tiny babies.  I love seeing what the bird finds to make her little home...twigs, leaves, grass, straw...

THE BLESSING of RAIN

Here in the Texas Panhandle, rain is something we always seem to be hoping and praying for.  It's been a very dry year here, but last week, those prayers were answered, and we received the most wonderful two days of rain.  What a Blessing from God!

There use to be this funny little character on greeting cards and posters named Ziggy.  On one of my favorite posters, all you could see was Ziggy's back and he was looking at the most beautiful sunrise.  The words below the picture read, "Go, God, Go!"  That's how it makes me feel when we receive rain...."Go, God, Go!"  Then, "Thank you, God, Thank You!!!"

On a Wing and a Prayer

We are so elated to be sharing Glittered Wings' first blog post! It is our hope to bring you lots of fun home decorating thoughts along with seasonal decorating and craft ideas. 

We both love thrift store finds and good junk! Hopefully, we can share with you great ways to repurpose those and incorporate them into your home design. 

Along the way, our blog will be sprinkled with some of our favorite Bible verses and quotes that inspire us. Hopefully, they will be encouraging to you, too.

We came across this poem on the Junk Gypsy's Pinterest site and felt like it encompassed all we wanted to say on this, our first post.
