We are so excited! Our Red Merry Christmas gift tags were featured on a Christmas Board on Pinterest that was highlighted in the 30 days of Pinspiration! We were featured on a board by designer Dale Partridge on Day # 2. Unfortunately, the pin did not link back to our shop, but rather to someone else's blog on Tumblr. There was no mention of the original source, which is a little dissapointing. But I left a comment, so hopefully people will understand that they came from our shop. It's still quite an honor don't you think?
We have been very industrious lately, having undertaken painting our family room a new color...you never realize how big a room is until you have to paint it! We also ordered a new coffee table and tv console. Putting the room back together, we realized it's time to decorate for fall-YAY! Even though we still have 90 degree temps here in Texas, putting out the pumpkins makes us believe that fall is close.....even if it's still 1-2 months away weatherwise! Here are a couple pictures of the mantel we decorated:
Mr. Crow and Mr. Owl usually make an appearance until Halloween. You can kind of see the new family room color behind....it's called "Bamboo", looked a lot greener once we got it on the wall!
Cheeto's new favorite past time seems to be sniffing the herbs.....first the catnip (of course) and then the basil....and then the mint and then back to the catnip! It's so funny to watch him sitting between the pots and just moving his nose back and forth! The herbs are all getting leggy, it's almost time to cut everything back and either replant for fall or harvest the seeds.
The babies have hatched! They are still ugly at 1 week and barely have any feathers! They have been sleeping a lot, we try not to disturb them. I couldn't resist taking a picture though.....hopefully soon they will get some feathers!
Well Mama bird has been busy! The other day we checked the nest and there were 4 eggs! She hides in the tree by the door and sits on the eggs when no one is around. As soon as we walk up the sidewalk she flies out of the nest to the tree. Soon, I think we are going to have to start using the back door, because once those eggs hatch, mama could get a little aggressive trying to protect her babies!
We found a nest in the wreath on our door, and just yesterday we discovered this baby bird egg in the nest! We hope mama comes back to hatch it and that all the in and out of our front door doesn't disturb the egg!
We've been very poor bloggers since Christmas, most of our family has been sick with one illness or another since Christmas and we've been very busy! A little spring fever perhaps.....here are a couple of pictures from our trip to New York last fall but they remind me of spring and summer so I'm going to share....
