This Nest Is Blessed.

Happy Friday.  Hoping your last week of 2016 has been a good one.  

I had a great outing with a friend Tuesday.  We took a road trip from Chicago to Hudsonville, Michigan to The Found Cottage.
A pretty 2 hour drive and we were there.


 
The Found Cottage



I will take you on a little tour of the shop and then show you what I "Found"!



This beauty was calling to me but I  just do not have the wall space for her.  She was gorgeous.



Then I saw this pretty painted nest on a old tin!!!  Checked off all my must have's.  White, chippy and pretty. Then.....



I saw this one too and decided this needed to come home with me.   Beautifully painted on old rusty tins.  I picked this one because the beautiful painting just stood out more.



Of course I had to paint the frame with a little white!!! 

Now that the Christmas decor is down I am looking to fill some spaces and this sweet sign landed here.






For now this is where this pretty new addition will stay.  As you know things tend to move around at The Junk Chic Cottage!!!!! For now I am liking it here.

I want to wish all of you a brand new year full of great health, happiness, lots of joy and of course many new creative adventures.

Thank you for your sweet blogging friendships and taking time to stop by my blog.  I appreciate each and everyone of you that take time to leave your sweet comments.

I am looking forward to starting the year off with visits to all your wonderful blogs and seeing all your new adventures.

Happy 2017.

  29. Hi Kris, I've been reading a lot about Liz Marie @ The Found Cottage & see on social media that they are moving to a larger location! Sounds like another road trip for you & a friend :) Adore your recent find & agree the image is much more present with the darker background.

  32. I hope you and yours had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and are looking forward to a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.

  34. What a fun trip for you and your friend. I love shops like this. You found a very special object for Junk Chic Cottage and made it your own. And what a perfect spot you picked to display it. This is one of the things I find intriguing about you. . .you have such a great eye for knowing what works where. I always look at your home and think, "She nailed it!" And you do. Always. Love to you my sweet blogging friend. So glad God brought you into my life. May 2017 be a year filled with even more blessings for your sweet nest. Hugs, Nancy

  44. Looks like a wonderful shop. Love the nest art piece that you found. It's perfect, and that little touch of white really brightened it up beautifully.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow, Kris, I love those kinds of shops and your treasure is so perfect. It fits the fireplace opening perfectly and looks so great! I was kind of surprised that you picked that one over the white tin, but I can see what you mean about the nest showing off so much better and the darker color of the tin makes all your white show off to their advantage..Happy New Year..xxoJudy
