Can you say "Stalker"

I don't know if this would be considered stalking or a Peeping Tom, but I have this cute little birdie I named Robin :) who set up nest under my carport. I started taking pictures from start to finish and was amazed at how fast the whole egg, hatch, fly away process really is. One thing that I did find odd is that Robin laid one egg and then a week later she laid two more...does anyone know if this is normal?

Well, it has been about a month since my last robin flew the coop but just last week I noticed another robin frantically building a nest (maybe it just dawned on her that it is now officially summer and she is a little behind the eight ball). I slipped back into my old ways and spied in the nest and who would have thought, one egg. Now I am intrigued and want to see if some siblings come later.

Upcycled Old Windows

Another little before and after for y'all on some old windows. I discovered that the Habitat store throws away the old windows that are broken which is exactly what I am looking for. So here are a few after I gave them a little paint and some nifty hardware. Little memo stations if you will!

Painted Kiddie Phono

My good friend, Elaine, gave me this cute little wooden bench to work some magic on. I originally thought it was a gossip chair or telephone chair but it has a sticker on the back that says Kiddie Phono. I decided to paint it a lite green, brown glaze, a little sanding to distress, a coat of poly for longevity and there you have it. I think this little bench would be sooo cute in a baby room, but for now I'm using it as a plant stand.
