Lord of the Rings Pendant Hobbiton and The Shire by EmilyMadeMe DIY Painted Feathers I’ve always loved the idea of painting fake feathers, and with festival season underway it seemed like the perfect time to do it. I originally thought of these purely as decorations but then it occurred to me that they’d be a great finishing touch for a festival outfit. This is a great activity to do outside on a warm sunny day, and once you start it’s slightly addicting! What you need: fake feathers, paint (I used acrylic paint), and a paint brush. I got this paint from Utrecht and I love it. I added a little bit of water to the paint before applying to the feathers, and they absorbed the paint almost like watercolor. After the entire feather was covered I added some dots and lines with white paint. Get as creative and colorful as you want with the feathers! I wanted to add in some of the smaller brown feathers to my arrangement, so for those I kept it simple and painted them in colorful ombre shades. Arrange your feathers on a wall as beautiful spring artwork! Photos by Julia & Brigette.

Friday Internet Crushes: Suitcase Pet Beds For the past few weeks, Pixel-the-cat has absolutely insisted upon sleeping in our paper recycling bin. This (a) makes me feel like a bad cat mom and (b) is driving me crazy, because I can’t really recycle paper with a cat in the way. I keep thinking that, if he just had a really awesome cat bed, I could have my recycling bin back. So, when I came across these suitcase pet beds while clicking around Pinterest, it was like getting struck by a bolt of lightening. DIY Vintage Suitcase Pet Bed tutorial from Fancy Seeing You Here I was originally thinking of making a bed that would sit directly on the floor, but I love the look of these contrast legs (and, let’s be honest, cats are better than you, and they like to be up off of the ground). I love that both halves of the suitcase are used in this pet bed. Vintage Renaissance is full of adorable design ideas, color combinations, and, of course, kitty photos. My cats would never stand for this sort of thing, but I really wish they would.

How to Create a Miniature Garden Today we will talk a little bit about miniature gardens. I was searching form a totally other thing and I “stumbled” on some pictures with amazing miniature gardens made in flower pots. At first, it’s better to know that this miniature gardens planted in a pot or other container, are designed to resist outside in the sun or rain. For this it’s better to use real small plants, which have a very slow growth rate. Some plants can grow up to 15 cm in a year, while others do not exceed 2 cm. These masterpieces are kept very well over time, up to 8 years without needing too much care besides watering the plants. You can create miniature gardens also in broken plant pots.
