Feathered Nest Friday

Welcome to Feathered Nest Friday!!
French Country Cottage

Do you ever feel like you are a crazy person running around and spinning
looking something like the Tasmanian Devil?
Kicking up a lot of dust and creating chaos but not really getting much done?
Yea, that's pretty much how I feel about now. ;)
I have a full week of posts planned- so I am happy that my new tripod arrived the other day
and I can start using it. The one I have been using has slowly been bending and breaking
and giving me such a hard time with getting photos done.
Even though the one I got is pretty inexpensive- under $20 with just a few test shots
it is already proving to be fantastic.
Here's what I shared this week~
Each year I do a knock-off project and it seems I like to choose Anthropologie for the inspiration.
Last year I joined in the mason jar snow globe craze and this year
it was a little bit crazy kind of chaotic looking pom pom wreath


I also shared the little guest cottage bathroom dressed for Christmas


and the guest cottage kitchen with a bit of Holiday cheer



Let's get onto the review and get the party started!

Lisa at Fern Creek Cottage shared her quiet Christmas look- I am loving it.
Plum Doodles shared her darling burlap topiary tree- how cute!!
Topiary with Burlap Roses | PlumDoodles.com

Creative Home Expressions shared her darling little chair wreaths
SONY DSC

Live Love DIY shared her ornament wreath. I am a sucker for these- just love them.


Blessed Serendipity shared her Shiny Brite tree- so darling. Love love love old Shiny Brites!

  48. Hi Courtney, Do you mind if I ask what kind of tripod you recently purchased and from where?? I'm wanting info since I've never used one and am seeing my photos get blurrier with the darker days we've been having and my shutterspeed being so slow. I think a tripod would help me.

    Thanks so much and I always enjoy all your photos. What editing program do you use? Sorry so many questions:-)

    xoxo

  60. Thanks for hosting. Hopefully, next time I will have some projects to post. Wondering why every blog that I visit that is hosted by blogger, the pictures are very small and I can't make them bigger to look at. Wondering if it's a blogger issue or an issue with my ipad?
