Art of the Dress, Challenge No. Two

How do you wear your trench coat?

 This coat is one of my favorite purchases of the year.  I wore this everyday on vacation in San Diego in  March.  It was perfect for the beach and downtown.  I can wear it casual or with the ruffles, dress it up.

I love new life!

A wise mamma built her nest under the eave of our house, on top of a gutter, and bless her heart, she built that nest right outside our dining room window.  It has been such a joy to see her gather the long pieces of grass, she was so diligent and efficient while making her nest her home.  

The pictures are blurry because I took them through the window.  If you look carefully, you can see a worm gathered up in her mouth.

Here she is feeding one of her three babies.

Here are two of the little robins.

Look at that mohawk!

I love new life!

Here is what I've been doing to my nest...

I bought this fabric at Hobby Lobby over a year ago when it was 80% off.   Not knowing what I would do with it, it sat in a drawer, but I knew it went well in my house so I bought it.   I had a friend stop by and she suggested I add it to my $3.74 for the pair curtains from I love a bargain!

Gives a little more life to my living room!
