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.Read More
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!Read More

This is another fun DIY nest. It is such a sweet and charming nest. This is a very inexpensive project and just takes a short amount of time. This nest was inspired by one we saw in Country Sampler's Rustic Weddings Magazine.Read More
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...Read More
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!!!"Read More
Easter is such a wonderful and blessed time of the year. It’s a time that reminds us of the tremendous love God has for us. It’s a time of rebirth and renewal.
This time of year is also when we love to get out the fun and colorful Easter decorations.Read More
For a while, back on the farm, our parents raised Rheas. Mom always saved the eggs that were not viable and emptied them using a WD40 method. In order to do this, you carefully drill a small hole into one end of your egg. Insert the plastic straw, that comes with the WD40, into the hole you drilled. Over a bowl and very, very carefully, begin spraying the WD40 into the egg. If you spray too quickly, the pressure will crack the egg. As the WD40 slowly enters the egg, it will displace the egg's contents. Mom always made sure to rinse the emptied eggs with bleach water. She has quite a collection of them. So this year, we decided to decorate a few for Easter. With a bit of imagination, some paint, paper and gilding, we got busy.Read More
We thought we would get an early start with our Easter decorations, so we searched the web for decorative rabbits. We came across some really cute decoupage bunnies. Well, low and behold, as we were walking into Home Goods a couple of days later, there were the very bunnies we had seen on the web.....and of course, we had to buy them.Read More
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.
