Feathered Nest Friday

Welcome to Feathered Nest Friday!

French Country Cottage

It's the first week of school over here!
 My middle guy and youngest both started HS yesterday~ 
Cullan is a senior and Ansley a freshman. 
Unbelievable. I don't know how they could be so big already! 
So we are getting back into the swing of the school routine and schedules over here
and wrapping up about 500 projects all at the same time and I am scheduling this post to publish on time hopefully...
Yes, I think I might need A LOT more coffee!
 :)

Here's what I shared this week~

and my grandfathers workshop stool in my kitchen




 The little vintage and new Salt and Pepper shakers 
that I turned into vases


and I also shared the burlap and jute webbing table runner I made
while immersed in my love affair with burlap and jute webbing 


Okay~ 
Let's get onto some of what you shared last week 
 and then get the party started!

I adore this chair. I think I even need this chair.
Just an amazing makeover at Little Place Called Home Sweet Home


Timewashed shared this beautiful plaster heart
so sweet and what darling gifts they would make!
The Space Between shared a super easy to make leaf wreath.
I love natural wreaths- this one is going on my to-do list!

fall mantel

Shabby Art Boutique shared her darling pallet crates
and as well, 
she has a new Friday link party called Shabbilicious Friday too


 Heavens Walk shared the amazingly gorgeous bedskirt that Ticking and Toile made for her~
 and Laurie's photos are so incredible too! Beautiful post!

  6. Feathering our nests is OH SO MUCH FUN! But as our kiddies grow up and leave the nest it brings SUCH changes...Oh My, if your 2 LITTLE ones are in high school, your days are FULL OF FUN! After they graduate the years seem to just MELT AWAY! So enjoy!!!
    I LOVE your idea of the salt shakers as little vases. "CLEVER GIRL"!

  51. Good morning! I linked up two things today.
    (1) I have been overrun with tomatoes from my garden. And I love sundried tomatoes. I've linked up Sundried Roma Tomatoes-made in the oven (#285). They are so good on a pizza, a sandwich, or just by themselves.
    (2) I've also linked up simple recipes to make all of your Skin Care from home. The ingredients are healthy, moisturizing, wrinkle-fighting and non-toxic (#286).
    Hope you enjoy and thanks for hosting the party again!
