Feathered Nest Friday

It's Thursday afternoon

Feathered Nest Friday

which means it is Feathered Nest Friday time!
I have been working on projects though not much I can share with you just yet!
You will  have to stay tuned ;)  here's what I did share this week:


 I finally finished one of the double ruffled slipcovers that I have been working on for these chairs. 
Love how it came out and have been crushing on those roses too!
Yum!!

I also shared some inspiring blue eye candy that just might be
 inspiring a little project (or 5) over here
 ;)



 I will be offering design consultations and accepting advertisements in the coming weeks too!
You can find more info in the tabs at the top of my blog!

 Thanks Roeshel and Heather for sharing a new followers gadget that I have added on
 my sidebar right over there >>>>>>
called Linky Followers.
This new gadget is an option to replace GFC in case it goes away all together
So I am trying it out- we'll see how it goes and would love for you to follow along there if you would like 
and  I will follow each of you as you follow along as well!
Just click on the Linky Followers tool to sign up for your own followers gadget for your blog!

Okay!! 
Onto the Party!!
Can't wait to see what you have been up to!! What a turn out last week!!
 I have had a few  questions about how long Feathered Nest Friday is up each week~

The link goes up on Thursday afternoons- usually a little before 2:00 p.m. California time
and you can link up until Sunday afternoon around 4:00 p.m. 

I do my best to visit as many links as time allows and greatly appreciate you visiting other blogs as well.
I love when I stop by a link and see other party goer's commenting - thank you!

Here are a few highlights from last weeks party:

A place to call Home shared this super charming & creative headboard

Remodelaholic shared their brand new built in's- they came out fantastic


The Green Dresser shared this darling striped beauty


Joy to Journey shared this adorable playhouse under the stairs


Petites  Passions shared this beautiful fireplace mantel that her father built.

  69. Hi Courtney.

    Just an FYI that I am now following you with Linky Followers rather than GFC. I'm encouraging my followers to do the same as I'm hoping to phase GFC out, so if you would that when you have a moment, I'd appreciate it! Have a great weekend and thanks again for hosting!

  72. Hi Courtney,

    I don't have anything linked up this week, but it's always a pleasure going through some of the link ups! :) I also decided to sign up for a linky tool like you suggested and am now following you there too. :) My linky tool is right below my GFC gadget on my page. Anyway, thanks for being so inspirational. Enjoy your Superbowl Sunday! :)
