Birdhouse and Sweater, Before and After.

I came home on a windy day and found my birdhouse had been blown to the ground. As it crashed against the hard dirt below, it broke. It was easy to fix with a bit of wood glue. While I was at it, I decided to repaint it too. I hung it up last year in hopes a bird would make a home for it's fledglings within. No such luck. It may have been hanging too close to the bird feeder. No mother bird wants a whole bunch of other birds swooping so close to her little ones.

I fixed my sweater recently too. I got this mustard colored sweater at the thrift store. I loved everything about it except it's gold button clasps. They seemed far too 'old lady' for me. So I snazzed it up with simple brown buttons. Now it reminds me of the type of sweater that a daughter of a fisherman in Maine would wear in the 1940's.
