Buildings and Birds
Jacob brought a little taste of our old hometown into our new home. The past few weeks I have been working late in lab a lot. So, to keep himself busy I suppose, Jacob has been doing more shopping. One night he ran out to one of our local thrift stores and found a gem that is perfect for a sidetable next to our bed.
It is pretty, and has a huge top, which is great for all the stuff my hubby needs next to the bed: phone, tissues, chapsticks, alarm clock, and of course the knee pillow. Plus it has some tiles making coasters unecessary. The tiles have a wonderfule drawings of some comforting buildings from my dear Colonial Williamsburg, like the Governor’s Palace.
Wasn’t it sweet of him to think of me like that? I love the tiles!
Jacob and I have spent the weekend watching General Conference and catching up with family a bit. We’ve been putting our new popcorn-popper and air filter to good use. And I’ve also been enjoying the time to just sit back a bit and sew some new birdies while listening to the general authorities speak on faith, gratitude and Christ. Here is a peek.
I think of this picture as “lovebirds”. I still need to outfit some of them with ribbons to finish them off as ornaments. Indeed, the birds bring some simple happiness to my living room, and I hope they do the same for Christmas. Although with eleven birds now sitting on our mantle, Jacob had deemed it “creepy”. I guess it is time to pack some into the Christmas box. I just hope our tree isn’t too Hitchcock-esque.
