Springtime Nests at the Nest!

 I've been busy as a momma bird making these Springtime nests!
 I had so much fun making the Christmas trees in silver plate containers for the Holidays that for spring this year I decided to try something new.
 They are so much fun to make and I enjoy working with all the natural elements. (Although I will admit... my studio has never been as messy! This stuff goes all over the place!)
Each one is different and embellished with the requisite amount of bling!
I hope you all are beginning to enjoy Spring as much as we are here in Phoenix!

A Fresh Start for 2016

 Back in January I decided to leave my home at Rusty Saturday and begin anew down the street at one of my favorite shops in the valley. It is called Tattered Nest Vintage Marketplace and I could not be happier that I made the move. I love being there. The reason I have not posted in soooo very long is that I have been so busy trying to keep up. It is a wonderful problem to have and I am very grateful.

 I thought I would show you some pics of the space as it has been evolving over the past month.
This antique open hutch was one of my favorite pieces I have ever had. 

 Filling it with vintage goodies was so much fun.

I hung these antique farmouse chairs on the wall and used them as shelves. You probably cant see them very well, but the bottles inside the strappy galvanized bucket are antique ceramic ale bottles from Scotland complete with marks.

I made this cool hanging shelf using an old fence panel and real books for the shelves. I thought I had a photo of the painted Ball jars holding pretty Spring daisies but I couldn't find it. :(

 I love these nesting tables, painted white with the gold design showing through.

As things sold I rearranged and added in new things. 

 I brought in fesh plants and used old pages to fill the gap between the pot and the container.

 This is the most current view of the space. 

 This armoire/dresser is so pretty in person.

 This is another of my favorite pieces. I used anaglypta wall paper for the drawer fronts.

This sage green chair is stunning. It is in like new condition and sooo comfy!

I love this chandelier. I would have kept it if I had a place for it in my home.
 This is a cool piece. The top opens up to create a nice wide serving area for food or drink!

 Okay... another one of my favs. These two shelves were made from old shutters and are perfect for a cottage or farmhouse look!

 I adore vintage mirrors. They add just right the right amount of shine and sparkle to a room.

 One more great find... This cool table. It has a wonderful shape and the legs have their original chippy patina.

Well that's it for now!!! I have more posts ready and some cool news about our family coming up soon!!!
