Feathered Nest Friday

Welcome to Feathered Nest Friday!
A crazy week over here with Blogger issues...
resizing and reformatting and changing things for no reason...
but hopefully things are fixed and back on track now.
French Country Cottage
This week~

I shared the wee little birdhouse that I made with Lowes Creative Ideas ;) HERE

as well as some information about focal b&w photos that I have taken HERE


 I also shared the somewhat scary BEFORE photos of our kitchen-
 yep it was bad.
 Find the rest HERE

The AFTER post showing all the changes we made and how we did it ourselves is coming soon-
 so stay tuned!

It's also time to announce the WINNER in the Curly Willow art print GIVEAWAY!!
Congratulations goes to

Today, I've linked up a simple tutorial-sans raw fish. It's healthy, cheap to make and oh, so tasty. Thanks for hosting the partee! Hope you enjoy-have a great day!
