Eco Candle Holdar

This candle holder is made from wood scraps, they are from the table legs, some old lace and pine tree bark. The last one I collected myself from the fallen trees. Unfortunately, I could manage only one, for the rest with the inclined top, I did not have the right tools.

Pimp a Chair

What are you doing on Friday evening? Go to bar, visit friends, watch TV. Not me, at least not on the last Friday. I went to the workshop"Pimp a chair" organized by the local thrift shop Velerleishop. We had a great evening- coffee, thee, sweets and a lot of fun, and the results were nice.

I have chosen the old and heavily used chair from the front. It looks form the 30s-40s. Some wooden parts still should be repaired.

We should manage it in two hours, so instructions and advice was really helpful.

 Lets do it.

My new chair.

Easter Decoration Ideas

You won’t find them in the Bible, but many cherished Easter traditions have been around for centuries. The most prominent secular symbol of the Christian holiday, the Easter bunny reportedly was introduced to America by the German immigrants who brought over their stories of an egg-laying hare. The decoration of eggs is believed to date back to at least the 13th century, while the rite of the Easter parade has even older roots. Other traditions, such as the consumption of Easter candy, are among the modern additions to the celebration of this early springtime holiday.
