The Bite Was a Delight!

A group of 7 of my friends did the Bite of Downtown Renton last night and it was a pure delight! All of the restaurants showcased their restaurants with delicious "bites" and the service was amazing. From talking with many of the owners it sounds as though the crowd was great too....we heard somewhere around 170 participants! For those of you who were unable to attend I urge you to get on down to downtown Renton in the near future and visit the many fine restaurants Renton has to offer. We really have a great diverse selection and quality choices for an afternoon lunch or dinner! Thanks to Armondo's, Fin N Bone, Melrose, Red House, Blossom's, Bella Napoli, Geri's Casual Dining, La Hacienda and Yoggi's Frozen Yogurt - you and your staff's were so much fun!

Crown of Love

One of our dear customers Kris is one of those ever so creative ladies we all wish we could be! Every time she stops by Feathered Nest, she is always on to a new project. Today when she stopped by she brought this great crown she created out of chicken wire, fabric, a shell necklace, random jewelry and scraps of ribbon and lace. It's always a delight to see what she comes up with next. Kris' daughter is getting married this July and so she is making a customized crown for each of the bridesmaids for the bridal shower. What a wonderful momento for such a happy occasion!

Planning an Herb Garden

I attended the
"Planning an Herb Garden" class this morning at Squak Mt. Nursery in Issaquah. It was very imformative and inspirational. There were lots of questions both asked and answered. The instructor Patty was extremely knowledgeable and suggested great ideas for planning and planting an herb garden. The one thing I learned is that because of our long, wet, cold winter it will be a few more weeks before we can actually get all the plants in the ground. I did come home with bags of compost to get my soil amended, awaiting the actual planting day! Although there were herbs to purchase, most of them were small and not in bloom quite yet! After class I wondered through the nursery and snapped a couple of pictures of some bright blooms. As I was walking through the nursery I thought of all the great vintage type containers we have at Feathered Nest http://www.featherednestinteriors.com/ that would be perfect as small planters for flowers or herbs. I also stopped to take a picture of the serene creek that runs through the nursery on my way back to my car . Happy Spring!

Spring is Finally Here!

Well today is the first official day of Spring! And believe me I can't wait! It's been quite the winter here in Seattle.....having had snow up to this week! I'm anxiously awaiting the day of our "final frost" to get out in my garden and get this year's flowers planted. My garden actually consists of several large pots....but it's still a garden. I'm planning on attending an herb container class this Saturday morning at Squak Mt. Nursery in Issaquah http://www.squakmtnursery.com/ Let us know your plans for your garden this year.....we'd love to hear from you. Happy Spring!

Beauchamp Compacts etc........

I'm not sure about you, but I am often trying to find the perfect gift for a friend or a little treat for myself. Here at Feathered Nest we carry Beauchamp compacts, business card holders, pill boxes and reminder note pads which make a great gift. What makes these products so fun is that they come in the cutest packages and include a black velvet like pouch. Some of the different sayings include "Here's to Good Women: May we be them May we know them May we raise them", "Hormonolly Challenged", "Pills...Pills...Pills...and more PILLS", "You'll always be my friend...You know too much!", "Diva", "If you can imagine it, you can achieve it", "Well behaved women seldom make history", and several more.

Still Waiting for Spring!

After this weekend I'm sure I'm not alone in hoping that Spring is just around the corner! From snow, to hail, to high winds and now non stop rain.....it's March in Seattle. I find that our Fringe Studio products that we carry in our shop, Feathered Nest, help remind me that it won't be long before our gardens are in bloom. All of the Fringe Studio products have such wonderful designs and really are more like a piece of art. I look forward to being able to snip some flowers and add them to the many Fringe Studio vases we offer. Please visit our website at http://www.featherednestinteriors.com/ to see all our Fringe Studio products. Feathered Nest Sue and Melanie
