Anchors Aweigh! at Calico Craft Parts

Hi, servus and sorry for being late with my usual "every other Monday" invite over to the Calico Craft Parts Blog, where I am sharing a little boat shaped shrine I made.

I love Calico Craft Parts' little "Boat and Oars" kit - it is just perfect to showcase little treasures from your latest holiday at the seaside, isn't it? It also comes with a shelf so you can showcase even more treasures in it!

While I am writing this post our little lodger is sitting on my shoulder, spreading its wings for the first time and tickling the skin on my neck. I guess it will be just a matter of days before it will finally fly and join the flock again. It eats well - extremely well if you ask me. It is just amazing how a little bird can eat so much! We feed it three to four grasshoppers about every two hours and I am sure it would eat even more!
My son and I have to chop off the grasshoppers' legs as these have barbs that would harm the swallow's throat and stomach. The left over legs on the chop board always looks as if a massacre has taken place... lol Call us the grasshopper choppers! ;)

Hugs and happy crafting!


  1. I really like it alot.The rusty anchor adds the perfect touch. Very cool.

  2. heehee you make me giggle with the tales of grasshoppers! Who is doing the hunting for the lil birds food? And have you named him/her? Good for you to be such gentle caregivers ")

    I love the little boat and the feel of the sea Claudia- well done!
