    Chopsticks! What a grand idea! I really like the lines of the birdhouse as well. Thanks for the link Grace!

  2. Kendra says:

    Those birdhouses are adorable. My husband is Japanese, so we have a freakish amount of chopsticks lying around. Can’t wait to make this!!

  3. Kristine says:

    Looks like she has some videos and the directions for her projects here too:

    I really like the wine rack idea she has. Lord knows I’ve got more than enough cans I can divert from my recycling bin.

  4. Love your hanging light with candles and jars. Very Green Very Elegant. Thanks for the ideas.
