All things sparkly

March 30, 2011

Ever notice how birds are attracted to the most random, shiny objects when building a nest? Anything that glitters catches their eye, and they swoop down, snatching it up for their treasure trove home before anyone else can. It doesn’t matter to them if the object is old, broken, usable, or practical- all things sparkly fit perfectly into the design of their nest.

As I look forward to having a home of my own (in 4 months!) I am constantly seeking interesting and inexpensive ways to create the perfect, calming, beautiful environment I have so much been dreaming of my whole life. This blog is more or less a documentary of those attempts as I filter through countless DIY projects and hope to take that which is useless or ugly in they eyes of the world and instead make something beautiful out of it.
