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!

American Idol and New Stuff

Congratulations Kris! I am so excited that Kris won Idol! I don't think he could believe it! Even though I loved Adam too, I did vote for Kris at least 15 times Tuesday night. I thought it would be exciting for him to win since everyone sort of just assumed Adam would be the winner:-)Paige plugged her ears while Ryan announced the winner, she just couldn't stand to listen ( she is a huge Adam fan). I jumped up screaming when they announced Kris and she said "what?! what?! who won?!" Well, she wasn't happy, but I was!:-)Adam will be super duper famous anyway, so it doesn't really matter. Man, I'm always sad when Idol season ends:-(

Yesterday afternoon I stopped by Weathered and Worn to pick up this little shelf or whatever you want to call it:-) I put on layaway a few weeks ago. I had to move things around to find a spot for it. I'm out of room in this house for any more furniture, so why I bought it, I don't know. I'm not sure I'm happy with where I put it, but I will leave it there for a bit and see. It might be a little busy with the cabinet on the wall above it full of stuff. Maybe just to much "stuff" in that area. What do you think?

Weekend Visit and New Prims

This has been a fun weekend for us. My sister Kim and my nephew Patriot arrived on Friday morning to stay with us for the weekend. Friday afternoon we went to The Pizza Machine and had a great time there. It was not crowded at all with kids still in school, so that was nice. On Saturday morning we drove to Lincoln to Aunt Patty's Attic and then to Primitive Treasures. Sarah and Kindra told me about Primitive Treasures and I was very anxious to go. Aunt Patty's had so many great things as usual. It's always hard to choose what to buy there. I settled on a gameboard,a basket, some fat quarters,a small beehive and a penny pineapple. After Aunt Patty's we drove over to Primitive Treasures. It's in an old house and is so neat! She makes the most wonderful prims, I loved it!! I bought a grungy flag bag, a grungy flag star, a cubby box, a candle and candle holder, some pears, and a rusty muffin tin. I can't wait to go back especially in the fall and around Christmas. After we got home from Lincoln, the kids stayed home and Kim and I grabbed some smoothies at Scooter's and headed to Wild Horse Antiques in Plattsmouth. Kim found a spoon rack, and an old masher. I think that is all she got. I didn't buy anything there.
Today we went for a quick hike at Fontenelle Forest and stopped at Border's for a cup of coffee. Then Paige and I took them to the airport this afternoon. We wished they could have stayed longer. Here are some pictures for you~

Bumper cars!

Here is everything we bought in Lincoln. I loved the cubby box, but I don't do blue in my house, so I painted it. I also painted the spoon rack for my sister.

Here is the blue box painted a brownish red with black distressing. This display is in my kitchen~

I put all these in my big basket for now~The beehive is on my bench with the geraniums and flags~

I hung the flag bag on my peg board~

Added the gameboard and pineapple to my bowl rack~

Tucked the muffin tin in with some crocks in my kitchen~
Painted the spoon rack black, then sanded and stained it. I LOVE how it turned out!

A couple bowls and a tray that my sister brought for me to paint. The bowls were yellow and the tray was white. I painted them all Old Ivory and then used Bri Wax on them. She gave me one of the bowls:-)

The fat quarters I got at Aunt Patty's that are in the new cubby in my kitchen. I love these fabrics!
I hope you enjoyed all the pictures and I hope everyone had a great weekend! Oh and if any of you out there are on Twitter or Facebook let me know or click on my Facebook badge cause I'd love to follow you and I need some followers too. Especially on Twitter since I'm pretty new on there. Have a great night!

Mom's Garden and Americana

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. I had a nice relaxing day. We went to Border's for a coffee and browsed around there. Paige and I stopped in Bath and Body Works, Aeropostale, JCPenney,and Target while we were out.Not much going on around here lately. Just takin it easy!I'm ready for summer! I don't have anything new to show you all, but I have moved a few things around. Memorial Day is only a couple weeks away,so I have pulled out some of my flags to tuck around here and there. I love summer decor with flags,Geraniums and Americana touches. I hope I don't bore you with pictures of my house that you feel like you've already seen ! I'm only posting pictures of areas where I've made small changes.
I also wanted to share my mom's garden's with you. She loves to garden and always makes her yard so beautiful with lot's of fun areas for the kids. The newest garden is her Little Bear Garden where she has added some characters from the Little Bear cartoon.I think that is my favorite little kids show:-)If you'd like to see the slideshow of her garden click here
Here are a few pictures from her yard~

I changed my table arrangement and decided to use this red coverlet to add some color. This is my favorite coverlet:-)
Tucked a little flag in the basket hanging on my peg board~

I moved my caddy of Geraniums to my entry way bench and stuck a bunch of flags in the crock with the Garden Thyme sign sitting on it.

A new coverlet runner I got for my coffee table~

Added my flag pedestal and moved my pineapple runner to the table~
Moved the strwberries under the strawberry sign in my kitchen~

Sorry I haven't been posting much. I just don't have a whole lot going on worth sharing. My sister and nephew are coming to visit on Friday for the weekend. We plan to do a little bit of prim shopping while she is here, so maybe I'll have something to share by the weekend. Hope you all have a great week!
