I am having a bad day. One of those kick in the pants - totally unappreciated - No self-esteem - What am I doing with my life kind of days - But your stars, your beautiful, time-consuming stars, remind me why life is so grand. The simplicity of it all. How simple things make everything better. I am smiling now!


Nice! Knowing me I'd probably have to spray them a color!! lol

Love these stars. I can picture them hanging at the window.
I have just found you contributed to the 2012 owl calender for Myowlbarn. I was so pleased; I chose your owl for January so as to start the new year with bright colours. I found about this site at the end of 2010 and I love it.

Oh, this looks like a great holiday project! Lovin' all of the remodel updates. Your new space is awesome!

This is sweet, simple, and reusable materials, right up my alley!
Thank you for sharing... off to find twigs and branches (heheeheee) :]


lOL! I don't think our brains are wired for "how long will this take me" but "ooooooo! I MUST make that!" Then maybe a justifying, "Oh surely it won't take long?" Hee heee hee.

Well it's a lovely idea, and simple. The natural colors are wonderful but I could also see them spray painted white, or gold, or glittered.

I have a collection of glitter sprinkled pine cones I bring out for the holidays and they are so simple and pretty.
