When I lived in Michigan (USA) there was only so many things you could do outside in the cold before freezing. This wonderful little bird feeder is one thing you can do inside. It’s a simply, fun and natural craft that I remember as a kid. So grab the children and dig in!

Believe it or not, this striking art piece is made of coloured pencils. Yep, pencils. Lionel Bawden has taken this concept to an undeniably eye popping level. I have seen, how shall I put this, milder forms of this method, but nothing quite as spicy as Bawden’s work.
Most of the works are, what I would call, abstract or free form in visual impact. Though many do have a very geometrical shape and feel to them.
The work pictured in this post, is probably one of my favorites of his. Though truthfully I don’t care for white (or cream in this case), the use of the form with the colour is just amazing.
If you’re looking for unique, yet beautiful art check out Lionel’s work. I doubt very much that you will be disappointed.
Lol, I can’t get over this! A brush for the balding man. Not only will it get out the tangles in what hair you have remaining it will also give you a nice polish on your bald spot! I can just see combo packs of this on the shelf with different polishing oils. I bet there were a number of men who actually thought this would be a great thing to have. It may not have made it as one the best inventions of the generation, but it certainly has it’s charm!
I must admit that before I really started to garden I often wondered about people who used mulch. There would be these neat little kept gardens with red wood pieces to top off the look, like a cherry on a sundae. Honestly, I had thought mulch was for the visual effects of a garden alone. It had never really occurred to me that there could be other benefits to it. Well, live and learn as they say. Later I found out that the pros to mulch was a much larger list than I had originally pictured.
I couldn’t help but choose this picture for today’s “Chin Up”. Why? you may ask. Well, for those of you who don’t know already, I use to live in Michigan, USA. Now however, I live in Queensland Australia. If anyone had to lose sight of the shore to travel the ocean, it was me. Australia is about 10,000 miles from where I use to live. Grant it, had you told me I would actually be staying in Australia I would have laughed. Not because I didn’t want to, or had no reason to, but just that things like this didn’t happen to people often. True that my mum had married an Australian and subsequently moved to Oz, but still. For this to happen to me? Yeah, right.
