Feathering the Nest – Weekend Reading

Come take the chill off, sit down by the fire and read a few random picks from the ne(s)t of my faves this week. We’re cozying down this weekend and avoiding sub-zero temps. What about you? Are you celebrating Valentine’s Day tomorrow? Hubs and I postpone the celebration to exactly one week later because that’s the day we met – so that is our true Valentine’s Day!

Let’s start our weekend off with a heartwarming story about love and partnership!

With only one day left until Valentines, if you have some paint sticks and scrap wood, there’s still time to eek out a project. Make something special for your significant other, like this paint stick pallet. But with your own special picture, this would be great any time of year as home decor.

Weekend reading wouldn’t be complete without a good dose of cuteness. However, when I first saw this water feature, I actually thought the water was real and it was full scale. It’s that water; I feel like it could quench a thirst! It’s actually a fairly garden water feature!

This post really hit home for us. We both lost our mom’s to Alzheimer’s (me last month and hubs two months before that). We’re now both faced with the overwhelming task of how to declutter after a loss.

Here at Birdz of a Feather, we’re all about taking mundane items and upcycling them into home decor. Here’s a wonderful idea from A Life Unfolding to joush-up a nook with a shim accent wall:

I’m not much for new year’s resolutions, but every year I promise myself that I’ll attempt to get more organized. One can daydream! But maybe these free printable planner sets will help make that a reality this year?

Well that’s it for this week’s round-up. Hope you’re all nesting comfortably.

Have an amazing weekend and a happy Valentine’s Day if you’re celebrating!

  1. It’s horrible that you both went through this cruel disease with a loved one.

    I love the paint stirrer art, cute.

    As I said before I hope you raise tons of money and kick this disease to the curb.


    • Thanks so much for your support Cindy. My sister and brother in law are the real heroes of our story. They both chose to live-in with our moms and care for them 24/7 so they could live out the rest of their lives at home. Truly selfless in every sense!

  2. I’m so sorry you both lost your moms during this awful time. I can’t even imagine. I hope you spend this weekend awash in memories of love…and the pretty pictures you shared!
