Our Masked Visitors

Imagine my surprise when I looked out in the back yard and saw these little masked birds frolicking in the bird bath!   I believe they are waxwings and were just passing through the area when they spotted our luxurious accommodations.


Note the yellow tipped tail on this one that I caught in flight.


Looks like most of the guests have left the premises.


Until next time,  take care and please feed the birds and provide water for them.  You never know who might show up.


The waxwings and I are joining the Outdoor Wednesday party at A Southern Day Dreamer.

Shameful to Shabby

On my way into work last month, I spotted a bedside table  in the trash.    Since I was running late, I called my sweet hubby who hopped onto his white horse into his white truck and rescued the pathetic little thing.

After a good sanding and scraping, two coats of white paint, and a new drawer pull, the table has been revived and is ready for action in the bedroom.



I forgot to take a picture before we started sanding but let me tell you it wouldn’t have been a pretty one.   The table was covered with water stains and sticky tape and looked much worse than the picture below.  It truly was in a shameful state.


Thank you for stopping by to view my roadside rescue and makeover.
