Last Thursday morning we woke up to a snowstorm, and that seems to be the only time we see the Dark-eyed Juncos in our yard. Sure enough, there they were!
They don't come to the feeder, so you have to look out the window and down on the ground under the feeder to see them. They are a beautiful bird - dark above and light colored underneath.
There is a much better picture of a junco here at Tales of Birding.
Mike also caught some nice pictures of a couple of other birds we saw at our feeders the other day -
a male American Goldfinch who was interested in our thistle feeder, and
a White-breasted Nuthatch who likes the suet.
My main focus this past week has been the sewing room re-do, and progress has been made!
Besides getting rid of more unwanted items that had piled up, I also cleaned the room out, so that we could paint.
How's that for a nice clean room?! My fat quarters and larger stash are stored in those black DVD shelves. They were easy to carry into the guest bedroom as is, to get them out of the way.
In the interest of honesty (wink!) - here's what the guest bedroom looks like right now.
And that's only about a third of it all...
We painted the room on Tuesday!
I can't say that I really *like* painting, but I do like what a fresh coat of paint does for a room. The color I chose is definitely brightening up this room! It hadn't been painted in a very long time, and as we took things down and pulled furniture away from the walls, we could tell how badly the paint was needed!
Today, I get to put things back, repurposing a shelving unit for better storage, and creating a design wall. I know I will like that!
My favorite mug for this season!
Hope you're having a great week! Thanks for joining me for "I Like Thursday." You can find more positive posts over at Not Afraid of Color!
