Road Trip

We took a road trip this Sunday
 to Madisonville, Texas
Our purpose - to visit the
Lonestar Farms Miniature
Toy and Teacup Schnauzers!
We are looking for our new
fur baby!
It was a three hour trip from Victoria
and our timing put us there at lunch time,
so hubby did his magic and
found us a wonderful place to eat
Woodbine Hotel and Restaurant
209 N. Madison St.
Madisonville, Texas

The Sunday Brunch was so delish!
After lunch it was a short drive
out to see the pups
This sweet little girl
is 3 weeks old
and so precious
and these two sisters are 7 weeks old
and full of mischief
Decisions, Decisions........
Every Little Birdie says
Next we visit Texas T's Schnauzer's
in the San Antonio area
I'll keep you posted on our progress

Open House

Our Pastor and his family
just moved into their new home
This weekend they had
an Open House/Dedication
It was not only a time to open their
home to church family and friends
but also a time to thank God for
this wonderful provision.
Won't you come in a take a look around.....
The first room you see as you enter their home
is the beautiful dining room
Love, love, love, this gorgeous chandelier

The colors throughout the home
are so rich and elegant
From here we enter the living room

Doesn't this look so very warm and cozy?
The beautiful Master Suite
is just off the formal area

How peaceful is this little corner
of the master suite
...the perfect place to read and
drink a cup of tea
Walking into the kitchen area
you can't miss this pretty
statement piece
I love the blue willow dishes
Just off the breakfast nook and kitchen
is another quiet spot to
perhaps have morning coffee......
How cute is this little screened porch!
And last, my favorite room in
this beautiful home
I would love to be one of the guest
that spend the night in this
precious room
A few items in this room
where purchased from my booth
 "The Vintage Nest"

(like the two sweet little baby dresses)

There are so many things to give thanks for.
Thank you Lord that this wonderful family
answered God's call to Pastor
and shepherd our church.
They are such a blessing to our church.
Thank you that after more than a year in
an apartment they were able to sell their
house in the Carolina's and buy this house.
And thank you Lord that they now
have a warm cozy home to call their own.

 Every good and perfect gift is from above.

One day I was at the shop
and a man came by with
a old piece of furniture
(actually I should say pieces
because it was in pieces!)
Always up for a challenge
I bought it for $15.00
I cleaned it, and waxed it with
Annie Sloan dark wax
Hubby glued the top piece
back together
and added a dowel rod
I bought hardware for
the bottom drawers
and since it was missing the
top drawers I purchased
baskets to take the place of drawers

TA DA.........

 I think it was once a dresser
with a mirror

But now it's a beautiful
Wash Stand!!


Who says an ugly duckling
can't turn into a
beautiful Swan!!
It now has a prominent place
in my booth, The Vintage Nest
Every Little Birdie says
Hope it finds a good home!

Cozy and Warm

Believe it or not
We've had some cold weather
here in South Texas
No Snow like much
of the country
But a good time to curl up
and stay warm
Here is my favorite
place to snuggle down
and stay warm
doesn't it have a warm feel?
the perfect place to
read a book
watch a movie
or take a nap
There's no place like home
when it's cold outside
Every Little Birdie says
Baby it's cold outside

My talented daughter
shared a picture on
with me
I gave her this chalkboard
for her birthday
and she used her talents
to write a line from
her favorite hymn
WOW, her creativity blew me away!
(as does her love for Jesus) so inspired me I got my chalkboard
and tried my hand at a line from
one of my favorite hymns
Thank you my sweet daughter
for the inspiration you are to me 
in so many areas of your life
Every Little Birdie says
Children are a gift from the Lord!
