Roving Renton To Return

Well my husband Mike and I did the last (at least for awhile) Roving Renton last night. I heard that it was another great success and had quite a few rovers. We started at Armondo's and were treated to non-pasta gnocchi's which were great accompanied by a glass of red wine. We then headed to Melrose but were roving behind a rather large group so we decided to head to Blossom's. There we had a chicken egg roll and pork skewer with a glass of their house white wine. Very good! Then we wandered back to The Melrose and waited for a few minutes for the bar to clear out because that's my favorite place to sit and be entertained by Leroy the bartender. He's worth the trip believe me! We enjoyed the most delicious scallops and rice and a great glass of viognier. To end the night we walked to the Red House where we enjoyed a glass of white wine and the best rice pudding. In talking with the restaurant owner's they said they were taking a few weeks off but hope to bring the Roving Renton back soon. I know I can't wait! Sue

Feathered Nest Flea Market a Success!

Well after weeks of preparing, pricing and setting up, Feathered Nest's first Flea Market proved to be a success this past weekend. We had very positive comments from the many customers that visited us both on Saturday and Sunday. We were very pleased with the turnout...thanks to sunny weather on Saturday and mostly dry on Sunday (the rains came at closing on Sunday!). We had several customers ask if we planned to do it more often and several who are interested in renting a table or space the next time around. If you would like more information on our next flea market please leave your contact information on a comment for this post or you can email us your information at Please visit our website at We look forward to hearing from you.

With this being the day all about love and sweetness we thought we'd share some pictures of a few "sweet" things we have here in our shop. With our shop being named Feathered Nest we have several items bird related which appeals to so many. We would love to hear how all of you spent this day so please leave us your comments.
Pictured here are two vintage hotpads with bird inspired images. There are 7 hotpads in the set.
Featured in this photo are various bird items. The blue box is handpainted and would be perfect for those creative minds! The platter in the background has feathers around the edge and a nest in the center.
This is another wonderful home accessory or gift featuring Fringe Studio's Walden vase.
We wish everyone a very special and romantic day!
Sue and Melanie - from our nest to yours!
