Feathered Friends

Hey ya'll! Hope your Tuesday is going well. The boys and I are enjoying our next to last week before school starts. A bittersweet time of year. Can't wait for um to go but miss um when hey are gone. I have for more weeks with Littliest so I will be fine.
Today the boys wanted to to The Old Oak Cottage. It is a cute little gift shop down the road and around a few corners from us. I mentioned us visiting it before and yet again I forgot the camera. Believe it or not it is the ONLY store that they behave the entire time and touch nothing! A true girly girl store so of course The Hubster loves hearing the boys say they want to go there! HA! Now mind you the only reason they enjoy it is because the ladies there make fresh homemade cookies every day and today they even had some pink lemonade! They always have the cutest gift items for the home.

We also stopped at Tuesday Morning which I normally do not like because the one by our old house was messy and dirty. The one here was pretty organized. They had a to die for bird lamp that was "originally" $119 for just $25! If I had not just purchased a lamp a few weeks back it so would have come home with me. I seem to be on a bird kick right now.

Still obsessed when we got home I searched on line for items made by a company who I always find at The Old Oak Cottage. That led me to Elizabeth's Embellishments. A wonderful site full of girly girl items that makes me want to start a side business selling things for the home. I have mentioned it in the past to The Hubster but first I have to start making money again with my baby items. If only I can get off this darn computer and back in the sewing room! HA!

Here are a few things I found over at Elizabeth's Embellishments that I just love and ALL have to do with birds and nests! I can so see a gift shop with all of these pretties.Aren't these the prettiest little coasters ever!? Truly my fave and I may just have to order a set They are just $3.95 for a set of four! I just wish they came in a variety set instead of having to pick just one design.

I have seen a few of these floating around blog land and wish I could land one but at $29.85 I think that one can be found at at much better deal.
This is a cute little bird ink stamp set. A definite must have if you are into scrap booking or just being creative.
These are beautiful Thank You note cards they also carry. If only they did not have Thank You on the front but the inside instead because then they could be framed and used as gifts.
Adorable cook book holder.
(I actually saw this today at HomeGoods for just $9.99!! It was sooo tempting but I already have a cook book holder. If you like it I would head over there. They were putting out all kinds of things today!..edited on Thursday.)
This is a set of labels and what not. I may just have to have this too! HA!

Last but not least these ornament birds are just darling as darling can be! They can be used year round and they also carry holiday themed ones.

I hope you gals had fun window shopping with me! I tell ya it is the best therapy if ya have the will power to say "Just walk away from the bird and nobody gets hurt"! HA! Elizabeth is offering free shipping on $100 or more!
Have a good one ya'll. Off to sew so I can make some money and maybe actually purchase a few of these pretties.
