I’ve added a few details since these photos were taken, but my iPad isn’t letting me download the most recent photos. No big deal….this is really just a blog to jog my memory of things or techniques I’ve used.
On a neighbourhood walk, I found a discarded non-functioning piano stool. Yep, I scooped it up, dismantled it, wire brushed the entire disassembled stool, and put it back together again. It now swivels, raises and lowers, and is now a plaything for my 2 yr old
grandson. Next step….buy a piano for him.
These guys are settling into their new nest, after a magpie knocked 3 babies to the ground. The mom waited in the tree, dropping mice from above to her owlets below. A young local construction worker contacted the owl sanctuary and was told that he could touch the babies and put them back up in the tree. So….he did just that. He built a lovely platform with some stuffing on it, placed the babies in it and voila! Mom and babes are snug and thriving.
