Feather Your Nest…Our 10 year Anniversary Event!!!

Well we had such a lovely time.  The barn was filled with birch twigs, logs, and nests.  It was so beautiful and I felt proud to have had the store named after ME!

My mom dressed me up as a bird, with feathers on my head and all over my curls……it was silly, but it made her happy.

There were so many amazing treasurers in the barn.  My parents and Gale just returned from a cross county buying trip and came home with the truck and trailer FULL!  They found this amazing Santos made of wood and plaster with glass eyes.

The nests mostly came from Wisconsin, the “grandkids'”  collected them and lots of feathers for my mom.

There was also this cubby from Minnesota, filled with fun pots and twigs, and nests and so on…..

Then there was this 13ft mercantile table!  I had a huge log on it from Wisconsin with birds, and nests and hydrangeas and blue glass.

There was another cubby, from  Minnesota, with large blue glass bottles that were filled with branches.

NOW, there is this little issue of CATS!!!!!!!!!

Turns out this cat decided to start living in MY barn!!

Then, it goes and has 5 little monster kittens!!!  All I heard was “how cute, how adorable”  they were.  Well excuse me……but the last time I looked I was pretty “adorable” myself and after all, my name is on the building!!!   Anyway, the kittens were old enough to be adopted out so they were out on display, getting way too much attention!

Fortunately they all found new homes!!!!

But most of all, we want to say “ Thank You”, to all our wonderful customers for the past 10 years!!!!
