For the Birds at O&E

  • What does a garbage can cover, bathroom sink faucet and a dining room table post have in common?  NOTHING! .... until you use a little paint, glue, hammer and nails and repurpose them together into a bird bath!                                                                                                         We have the fixings for your creativity!
  • Remember that salad dressing holder thingy that holds four different kinds of dressing and takes up lots of space on the table...
