16 Vases for All of Those Flowers You’re Trying to Grow But Will Probably Buy

 

It’s taken me a lifetime to figure it out, but I’m an in between kind of lady – I like the time it takes to get somewhere, so I prefer spring and fall to the more extreme summer and winter. And more than anything I love the flowers and greenery that burst forth this time of year, sometimes in my yard but more often than not at the florist. My vase game is strong (maybe too strong) but I can’t stop building upon it, and these sixteen will elevate your floral game 100%!

Spring Has Sprung: Birdhouses + Bird Feeders

Tweet Resto Bar Bird Feeders

This trio of simple and chic bird feeders give off a unique  modern effect. Made of acrylic glass, they’re lightweight and transparent. Attach them to the window with a silicone suction cup and cotton strings – with a plastic element that intentionally resembles red berries – and watch small birds flock in!

 

DIY Modern Birdhouse

Use leftover boards that you probably already have gathering dust to create this modern birdhouse with clean lines and pop of color.

 

Beekman Bird Feeder

This modern birdhouse has an open floor plan with a modern gabled roof, a black walnut dowel that runs all the way through (providing plenty of indoor and outdoor seating), and enough space to entertain and feed the local birds all summer long. It’s entirely suspended by a USA made nylon cord and designed to last a lifetime.

 

DIY Glass Shade Bird Feeders

Only three supplies are needed to make these modern glass shade bird feeders.

 

Vintage Camper Birdhouse

The construction of the birdhouse is fairly simple, but the details leave endless possibilities with making this kit personal to you. The finished camper should be a great home for a small bird family to start. The little windows are the right size to peek in, but still give the new hatchlings security. There’s nothing wrong with just sitting this kit up on your favorite shelf to show off your handy work, too!

 

DIY Acorn Bird Feeder

Use affordable wooden bowls, sisal rope, and a soda bottle to make this playful acorn-shaped bird feeder. When the birds have finished eating the food you can create a new birdseed mold and hang it again!

Carrot Cake 15 Ways

To me carrot cake is irrevocably tied to spring as the perfect transitional sweet – am I alone here? It’s like the hope of warm weather that’s to come all tied up with a bow and (in most cases) a layer of cream cheese icing. The classic flavors involved can be incorporated into more than just cake too, delicious dishes like scones, oatmeal, and a gin fizz to name a few. Check out all fifteen takes on carrot cake below!
