I need some clever inspiration today.  What about you?

Place a stale loaf of bread on a post for
our little feathered friends this winter.
Cute pencil perch.

This idea will liven up any laundry room.

The damaged back of an antique chair was cut off and

A rotating kitchen sink.  How smart is this?!

Whoever designed this:

probably designed this:

Wow.  Simply wow.

Yet another reason to love the 70s:

I don't know what you call this creation but I want one.

Steps for making a chocolate lace butterfly:
1)  Trace a butterfly on a piece of wax paper
2)  Pour quick-setting chocolate into a piper
3)  Turn the piece of wax paper over and
outline the butterfly with the chocolate
4)  Before the chocolate sets place the wax
paper into the spine of an opened book
5)  When the chocolate is set remove the wax paper
from the book and gently remove the butterfly

Perfect gift for wine-in-a-box fans:

Your eyes aren't deceiving you.

Keep these next two ideas in mind the next
time you bring sea shells home from the beach:

Cute nautical ideas.

Adorable luminary idea for Christmas.

A decorated light bulb casts groovy shadows!
(Yup, it's a 70s thing.)

Here's the deal:  a plug in the back of a bathroom
drawer is perfect for a blow dryer or curling iron.
Why aren't these in every bathroom in America??

As long as we're in the bathroom -
Perfect gift for those Game of Thrones fans.
(Don't forget the fleur de lis toilet tissue.)

I hope today's post made you laugh and inspired you, too.
