Nest Feathers and Twine - Formally Artist's Block Studio

The things that make a house a home and the stuff that holds is all together.

Years ago I started this blog with a mindset and goals that I have found have changed direction over time. I am excited to say that this blog has a new name.....Nest Feathers and Twine. I hope you come by and visit often. Feel free to get comfortable and kick off your shoes and join me on this journey of metamorphosis.

the last month in many photos...few words

this last month i have

  1. finally recuperated from my visit from the tooth fairy
  2. recuperated from the effects of the pain meds and anti-biotics
  3. am no longer melting...we got our air conditioning fixed finally!
  4. realized i hardly see my kids anymore now that it is summer. 
  5. realized how much i miss them when they are gone so much
  6. realized just how much they are growing up and becoming their own peeps
  7. realized i really have neglected my blog
  8. hormones suck
  9. insomnia due to sucky hormones sucks more
  10. celebrated the 20th birthday of my baby girl, and yes i will say it again, how did she age and i did not...really
  11. played nurse to a really ooey gooey boo boo....i really don't like ooey gooey boo boo's
  12. had my mind blown while trimming my middle guys beard....i have a baby with a beard...weird...hey i rhymed
  13. said good-bye to my 80+ year old love seat...sniff sniff.  the hubs saved the fabric and springs
  14. a livingroom filled with vintage/antique chairs and really needs a coffee table in the center of the room, kind of looks like we are holding 12 step program meetings!
  15. refinished a few pieces of furniture
  16. realized my work is never done
  17. learned alot about how to patina and verdgris brass charms....stay tuned my first tutorial coming soon, still learning!

found myself very sad that the telephone nook-soon to be shrine was ugly wood underneath all those years of paint i oh-so-carefully stripped off.  so the first coats of primer were going on here.
ummmm  on the shrine...but if you forget to make sure the lid is on tight when you shake, shake, shake the can it ends up all on the ground, your feet, your legs....

primed and painted white.  not sure if it will stay white since i am not sure where exactly i will hang this, at least in this house.  once we move in our dream house....lots of wall space!
this really needs to be looks tooooo new.  the chair a few pics up had the holy canoly distressed out of it. 

the guys and i blew up the air mattress and layed out on the driveway and watched fireworks


this is what happens when a boy flies over the handle bars of his bike.

you know the saying the taller they are the harder they fall
seems to be true
my baby, just shy of 6 feet tall
made it back home before he let the tears

the front side
the back SLIDEEEeeeee

the yummy inside

stephs 20th birthday cake-tas-trophy

guess what this is?

the answer:  a lesson not learned.

nighty night!
