Baby Birds

I'm a sucker for birds. 
Want me to go somewhere?  Entice me with a feather. 
Want to buy me something? Make sure it comes with a bird. 
Want me to paint you a custom piece with a bird on it?  You just became my number one priority.

So when I found out that this little one’s nursery was going to be decorated in Pottery Barn’s Penelope bedding I almost flipped my… uhhh flipped out.  Baby birds in greens and pinks!  Too cute for words.  I knew that I wanted to do something different for Everett’s room.  I pretty much have baby/nursery paintings down to a science.  A lot of pink + baby’s name = one very happy hormonal momma.  (You can see Hannah’spainting, Evie’s painting here).  We had already painted initials and name for Everett when she was born so here was my chance to let my bird craze shine.

So long story longer… I decided to stamp Jeremiah 29:11 on the back ground with a large E, and then painted the Penelope birds on top of the glass instead of a canvas.  The layering of colors and images is phenomenal and I love the look of the paint on the glass.  It makes the whole design pop.


It wasn't me...

Apparently there is another BS running around East Nashville giving us a bad rap.  Whoever you are let’s class it up a bit with prettier font and maybe put a bird on it- gurl.


Sept Top 10

September Top Ten
1. East Nashville Tomato Fest-  Once a year they shut down the 5 points area and fill the streets with a dog parade, tomato costumes, local artists, and food vendors.  It is a must do for the summer.
2. Nail Art- I’m a little obsessed with changing the design on my ‘fancy nail’ and this is my current fav!
3. Phillip Phillips-  I didn’t really care for him when he was on American Idol, but since the Olympics I can’t get his song out of my head.
4. Gallery Girls- this show had major potential to make me want to live in New York again… but now it just makes me what to rock a lot of black and a red lip.
5. Barista Parlor- If you need a caffeine pick-me-up or want to eat amazing waffles with Jack White you should swing by my new favorite coffee shop.  Their hand pour is amazing.
6. Ombre tights- Everything in my life needs to have an ombre.  Starting with these tights.
7. Made in Nashville- You will find me selling my crafty goodness at Centennial Park on September 15th.  Get yo' self some!
8. Dexter- season 6 is off to a gross start… nothing like a full Labor Day Dexter Marathon to waste celebrate the day off!
 9. Vintage Paper- now instead of trying to find actual vintage paper to craft with- duh I can just make it look like it's vintage.  Genius.

10. Summer- we had a good run this season and can’t wait to see your face next year.  You are by far the most relaxing time of the year for me.
