K Is For Kites (Blogging From A To Z Challenge 2014)

Welcome to Blogging From A To Z with Pin & Tack.

Today's letter is . . .

Kites. Yes. Let's go fly a kite.

I actually haven't flown a kite since I was . . uh - yeah, a kid. Wow. It's been a long time! They are very fun and, now, I really want to play with one. Unfortunately, I don't have one. Oh, wait. Google. Yep, I can make one.

How To Make A Kite (or two or three . . .)


Did you check out the site? Oh, my, they have a lot of awesome information. You can make almost any  type of kite with all of their easy to follow instructions.

But . . you need wind. I don't have any wind today, so I'll have to try another day :( In the meantime, let's enjoy these lovely kites . . .

Do you you there are kite festivals? They are very cool and you most likely will find one near you. If you don't want to fly one, you can watch lots of people, including synchronized kite flyers!


So, are you excited to fly a bit? I hope so - Share your favorite experiences with kites. I'd enjoy hearing about them.

H Is For Handful (Blogging From A To Z)

Welcome to Blogging From A To Z with Pin & Tack.
A letter is given and ya have to be inspired.

Today's letter is . . .

A handful is supposed to be enough. But is it really? These handmade & vintage finds leave me wanting more. So, let's have two - or three - handfuls instead ;)

Idea: Use in crafts or simply display haphazardly in a pretty dish.

Gems are always welcome in my home. Don't you agree?
