Recently my crafty friends and I enjoyed a Bird-themed luncheon. We were being instructed by the very talented Hap on how to watercolor paint a bird and a sunflower. She made us all look like accomplished artists.
Here is the bird she taught us to paint
Unfinished wooden bird houses served as nametags.
The beautiful vintage blue glassware is from the 1930's. I was blessed to find it at a reasonable price.
Thee pattern is Fosteria June Blue.

Greetings my friends!
Today I will show you how to make a MacKenzie Childs knock off tray for a fraction of the cost. My crafty friends and I undertook this project with great anticipation and we were not disappointed!
Below is a look at the higher priced MC tray
Here is the tray we made for under $20! You could spend more to find a tray with sides and open handles but I like the openess of the one below.
Here's how you can make it:
Start with an unfinished wood 17' by 17" frame. I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby. With a 40% off coupon you can get it for $6.
Purchase a 12" by 12" square of black and white tile at Home Depot for about $10. Remove the tiles from the mesh.. Glue all of them to the bottom of the inside of the frame with E6000 glue.
Tape around the tile so that you can paint the frame with black chalkboard paint.
(So that you can write on it with chalk!)
After you paint the frame, apply black grout between each square.
Wipe off the excess grout. Clean the whole tile service
I have used these numerous times in numerous ways. They coordinate with almost everything!

Although the roses were the same color on each table, they took on a pinker tone here. They color was called "champagne". The glassware is darker here. I was so pleased with how the tables looked!
