Bird Watching

Totally Random Bird Watching this week, for even more great links, check out the Nest Files.

We’ve had a stump sitting around in our garage for over a year and I’m ready to have a stump side table like this


Sometimes things make moments
@ The Redesign Company.  Our family had dinner with the Lewis family last night.  You will love how she thinks about home.  Her home is one of the most soulful homes I’ve ever been in.  Soon, I’m taking my camera so you can see the magic she works–I think that photo above is a client/friend’s house.

Remember Edie’s birthday post the other day where I was bragging how much she loved me because she made me that DARLING bird?  Guess what, it was a moment of sheer humiliation when Edie told me that she didn’t make it, the talented DENISE made it for me.  THANK YOU DENISE!  Plus, Denise teaches us how to make these charmers at her blog.

  1. I have to laugh out loud at this because apparently my college roomate and I were way ahead of our time. When I got my first apartment in 1981, my roomate and I found this huge stump in a field and decided it would make an awesome coffee table or end table. So we loaded the huge stump into the back of my Datsun B210 and came back to town. We unloaded it and proceeded to tell our boyfriends about our great idea and how they could help. They quickly informed us it was full of all manner of termites and other nasty pests and that we should burn it or otherwise get rid of it…so we did. Now thirty yearls later it’s all the rage! The funniest thing to me is the image of 2 girls who were 5’2 and barely 100 lbs loading this stump into the car. Thanks for prompting this trip down memory lane and a good laugh! Sorry for the long comment.

  2. I absolutely love the tree stump side tables. Can’t wait to see how yours turns out! We have a neighbor with a ton of them in their yard, and I have to admit I’ve been tempted to steal one. LOL :)

  3. So excited you had dinner with the Lewis family. Such wonderful, loving and thoughtful people. I might be a little biased because she picked out all of the paint colors in my house and arranged my furniture.

  4. you have to do those stumps!!! there gonna be great! just wanted to stop by and tell you about my love dare challenge i am having over at my blog..im trying to let my favorites know about it!..is there a way to send a mass e mail about it to fellow favorites? im spending a lot of time telling people about it! lol anyhoo..have a great weekend! i will look forward to photos of your friends house too!

  5. I love, love, LOVE all these things!! Especially The Redesign Company, I can’t even imagine what the two of you together could create!

  6. We lost a “Grampy Tree” in a hurricane leftover about 3?yrs ago, so the Scouts made it a “community project” (after the electric co pried said 50yo pine off an even older pole) so they’d have wood for their entire campout. I had the bright idea to p-urethane the leftovers for raised garden corners. They are still in daddy’s barn. :D I have had so many ideas I am truly not sure where to start! Saddle rack? Risers for step-shelving as one wall of planned potting shed, using old windows from hayloft for walls&coldboxes? (sigh) am so confused… :-/ -s- PS cant *wait* to see pix…

  8. Ooh..I would love a stump table like that!! I use stumps outside as my side tables but haven’t brought them in!! Great idea:)

  9. I am so buying that bird pattern from Denise on her Etsy when payday gets here. Or I sell a tassel. ; )

  10. Thanks for giving us the link to the litttle bird tutorial – but her site is no longing linking to the PDF of it. She still has a link to the pattern – but the pattern is no longer there. There are oodles of requests for the pattern from lots of people being directed there. Any way you could get her to repost it??

    Love your blog, and check it daily – although I’m a lurker and not a poster – until now. :)
