One of my foster mothers had a pair of feather earrings she had made in her high school days out of loon feathers and they were gorgeous!  I would beg her all the time to let me borrow them, I loved them so much!  The Plumed Nest has shared this tutorial with us on making your very own pair so click here for the how-to.

This is perfect for a roommate situation with each pocket belonging to each roommate!  Keeping the mail organized (aka not all over the dining room table) can be an arduous task even when it’s just your own mail, so organizers are a great way to keep track of your bills and letters.  Personally I put my outgoing mail in my purse so I don’t forget it.  Click here for the how-to.

Happy August, ya’ll!!!  And to celebrate August I have brought you an adorable needle threader project.  Hooray!  Working with crochet cotton as much as I do it is sometimes necessary for me to thread small needles with the cotton thread for beading, giant embroidery, zombie and/or Frankenstein making or whatever I’m doing and this is the cutest thing ever!  The cutest needle threader in the history of needle threaders!  Click here for Wild Olive’s fun tutorial.
