Cats, Birds & Goodwill...these are a few of my favorite things!

I hope everyone is having an awesome weekend so far.  While I have not posted anything since Monday, I've been one busy bee!

Here is a peek into my week:

I made a Yoplait Smoothie for us (they are delicious & low WW points).  Brian had 2 piggies in his face the whole time he was trying to enjoy his...they wanted in on it too...

Bob & Gary cleaning up! 
(They are named after SpongeBob & his pet snail, Gary...a couple of goofy cats that are great entertainment.)

This is a little maple tree we planted last year and it's growing fast.  I love it and so do the mockingbirds. A couple nested in this very young tree and built a pretty shoddy nest.  We have found the baby in the mulch 3 times this week.  It didn't have any feathers and was tiny...totally pitiful.  (Brian picked it up twice and I did once to put it's a myth that birds won't take care of their young if you touch them, btw.)  Apparently, the nest kept tipping over, so we got a wisteria branch, some twine and shored it up.  While we were doing this the mom & dad were going nuts..swooping us & tweeting their heads off.  As soon as we walked away they flew in to check on their baby.  It must've worked.  All is well baby on the ground this morning!

I went by the Goodwill that just opened in town and found some pretty cool stuff.... 

My sweet cousin gave me a set of candles that smell like fresh cut flowers..just gorgeous!  I found this pedestal dish that suits one of them perfectly.  Thank you, Teresa - love you girl!

I don't know where I'm going to put this.  It may end up in someone's stocking this Christmas.  I do know that it's made in Italy, it's lovely and it was only $13, so I wasn't leaving without it.

I collect old tins & an old cast iron lid from Belgium was a shoo in.  You never know at Goodwill...I could go back and find the bottom to this.  The lid is deeper than what is showing in the pictures, so I might make another birdbath with it for the backyard.

Well, I'm still working on the wardrobe for my mom (that went with my dresser that I just finished) and we're picking up the beadboard & crown molding today for the pink room.  Andy comes back this Sunday from his mom's & it's going to be SUPER busy at work over the next few weeks. Life is good and I can't complain.

Now, I'm going to have a late breakfast with Brian and we might watch a's fun laying around when you get the chance.  Have a restful & fun weekend, ladies!!

  1. You ARE busy!! What are you planning to do with the wardrobe for Mom? I love the bird's nest in your maple tree-sometimes they need our help whether they want it or not. Post pictures of what you wind up doing with the pot lid, the color is great!


Who doesn't love a comment? Thanks!
