If you know The Freckled Nest and the wonder that is Leigh-Ann, then maybe you’ve seen the Sponsor Giveaway (yes, my birds are part of it & yes, that may be one of the few times you see my silly face) Check it out good luck! :)

A Quick Bunting!


Wooo! we just finished up a crazy busy week of high school graduation celebration! Lots of fun, a few tears and we are ready for summer. So I put this little bunting together quickly to celebrate. Super easy- glue, glitter, knitting tape and some fabric scraps. My daughter loved it and that always makes me…

Silly title silly piece of furniture! Yes everything about trying to get rid of this piece of furniture has been off. Seriously we have a piece of furniture that must be odd because we couldn’t couldn’t give it away. It is still in current production and no one wants it, oh well… So it is…

A Break
