Folk "Heart" Bird House with Stand

This cute little bird house has been sitting
on our guest bed just waiting for me 
to paint a stand for it. 

I've had 2 unfinished bird house stands sitting in my 
art room/studio FOREVER (it seems). 

They're taking up a bit of floor space
and starting to get in my way. 

It's one of those projects that I know
will take some time, so I put it off. 

One day rolls into the next and
well, you know. . . 

Last weekend, I felt the need to check 
it off my list and "get 'er done"!

I set a goal for myself of one day
to accomplish it. 

It was such a good feeling to have 
finished it in the time I allotted myself. 

Today's goal: 
*Paint the 2nd stand. 

The only problem is that today's goal
is in competition with 5 loads
of laundry AND changing the bed linens. 

We'll see, I'm going to push myself. 

I'm all about striking while the iron is hot!


  1. Lovely, Terri.
