Cabin…or House Fever


Well, it must be January in Kentuckiana. There’s snow on the ground, the temperature would have to warm up to freezing, and I have been in the house for four days straight! I was back to work for 1 1/2 days before the snow came. Before that, I had been off for two weeks on Christmas break! Can you say “CABIN FEVER”?



At least we did get some things done around the house during the time I was off. We built a headboard out of an old solid oak door that was purchased at the Habitat Restore for $10. If you have never been to a Restore you have got to go! We find some really great things there that have come out of the houses in Old Louisville. When you have a 100 year old house, it comes in mighty handy. The headboard was fun…we just added some 2x4s, molding, and paint, and voila! The cat seems to be appreciative.

Another project was this neat little bird feeder made out of glass vases, bowls and saucers. Just Goop them together. I am a huge believer in the power of GOOP! My husband introduced it to me. He is known far and wide as the “GOOPINATOR.” (Move over Arnold) It slips over a post hammered into the ground and then is filled with bird food.


We’ll see how it fares after these birds get through with it!! In this picture the birds are actually eating our dog’s food out of their doghouse in the back yard…brazen hussies! There were about a hundred more watching and waiting their turn from the powerlines.

Keep your feathers warm and keep happy!

  1. Great pictures, I am not quite as talented or have the vision you have for making bed post out of doors but I do like looking and seeing other folks ideas. Great job hope to see the real thing soon.
