My Family Room is for the Birds

It's still pretty warm here, but it won't be long until the air starts feeling a little nippier, the leaves on the trees start to change colors and the urge to cozy up my nest for fall will hit with a vengeance. Before that time gets here I thought I would share some sights from my summery family room.

I suppose my house lends itself to the spring & summer seasons because of the color scheme I use. Just like my kitchen there is a lot of yellow & blue in here. It reminds me of the sun & sky.
My love of the garden extends into my house. You might have guessed I also like birds.

A few more birds on the end table.

A hand painted table with another bird. Check out the handle ~ it is a bird's egg. Little feathers floating down the sides. . .

A garden angel - oh & look what she's holding - a bird.

I just put this bird out today. He will stay through fall. Notice the fall leaf and acorns. Pretty soon it will be time to put away the birds with nests and eggs.

This little one came out today too.

Just so you know everything in here isn't a bird ~ I also have a cat.
She sleeps a lot. But, at least I know she won't hurt my birds.


  1. Kim,
