I have many interests. I have been a crafter since I was young. I can sew, make jewelry, paint, decorate, garden, etc. and I love all those things. I have also owned my own antique business with my mom and sister for several years. So...I have also been a garage saler! I have lots of collections at home including vintage jewelry, fabric, vintage coats, shoes and hats.
My husband is a farmer and I love to go out with him on the weekends and check the crops, watch how fast they grow and I also love to look at all the birds! On Saturday mornings, the dogs know it is a farming day and they will not leave us alone. We have to take them with us and they love to run through the fields and chase balls and play.
When we come home from farming we love to tinker in our back yard. I love to plant flowers. I love yard art and I LOVE to make hummingbird swings for my hummers!
Skills and Techniques
I like to make my swings from copper tubing and I attach that to either a wood dowel or a grapevine twig from our backyard. I then use decorative wire and I attach beads, crystals, etc. around the copper tubing. I use my little wire cutters and my hands to decorate. I make a hanger for the top of the swing. I also like to make a dangling centerpiece on the swing. It is very enjoyable and the birds don't seem to care what color I decorate with.
When you receive your swing all you have to do is hang it up in your backyard and enjoy!!!
