Purple Finch Nest and more Geraniums

Well I found out that the bird nest on my wreath belongs to a purple finch. This morning I held my camera very still through the blinds on my front door window and waited very still and patiently for the bird to fly back to the nest. I think these pictures of them are so cute. It looks like they are trying to figure out what the weird thing in the window is. :-)

The babies aren't so cute yet~ Eew! They will be in a few days though. I have to stand on one of my chairs to get a good picture in the nest. I'll get up there and take another one tomorrow.
I have put out the rest of my Americana decor which isn't much. I love this Independance Day Celebration sign. I filled a little crock with geraniums to sit by it.
Added some geraniums to this bucket in my room.
Stuck a flag in this old jug sitting on the flag bunting~
I made this little Abraham Lincoln pillow ~
I also made this flag pillow that will be posted on my selling blog later today or tomorrow~
This pillow is for sale also. I love the fabric on this one:-)
I made this flag pillow for me~
These Abe pillows will be for sale~
A new grouping I put together on my little school desk~

I hung up my Farmer's Best Red Geraniums sign above the bench.I found these little pots of herbs on sale at Michael's and sat them in the highchair. I moved the little lamb over by the stacking boxes.

I rearranged my kitchen cubby just a bit~

I hope everyone has had a nice holiday weekend!

I like all your decorations but especially the pillows. They look great. I have a bunch of patriotic decorations but don't know if I am ready to bring it all out of the attic yet!

Hi Janae,
I love all the decorating changes you made. My favorite is the new display on the desk ~ the colors are so good together. Wooden bowls are one of my favorite things and yours looks so great in that grouping!
The pictures of the birdies are sweet ~ I'm looking forward to more.

Hope your holiday has been special! Mine has been nice and quiet.....and REALLY wet! : )

Love the Indepenence Day sign Janae:) Also the pillows especially the Abe ones really neat!
We had a robins nest in our wreath on the door when Chris and I lived together and everytime he came home day or night the parents would dive at They never bothered me though:) Yours are just so cute!

Hi Janae,
Everything you made looks so good! Where do you get your ideas from? I have no imagination whatsoever. If I see something, I always think, well I could make that. But, I can never think of things on my own. I love the pillows. Now I want to make some. :) Hope you don't mind me stealing your idea? :)
It seems like everyone is finding birds nests somewhere on their property. You never know where they will show up.
Have a great week, Janae

Good job - as usual! I love the Independence Day sign, especially with the red geraniums in front of it. They are my favorite summer flower. Those little birds are so much fun to watch! Have a great week, Dawn

Hi Janae, I love the pictures of the birds you took. It is so cool to see them up close! Your babies will be cute in a few days. But for now I agree, Ew!
Your Summer decorations look so pretty. I don't have my red geraniums out right now. I may get them out today. I also really like your new grouping. I am ready for a visit from you so we can play with my stuff. Only a couple more months right?
Your pillows are so neat. You are so creative. I hope you have a great day. God bless, Jamie

I have been freaking out because my computer has not allowed me to view your blog for several days. It aborted me as soon as I got to your page (Urghhh). Anyway, I am so happy that I was FINALLY able to get on and see what you have been up to. I absolutely love the Abe Pillows... you are so talented!! Thanks for sharing birdie pictures... very neat!
