The SUN is FINALLY Shining...what we've been up to...

Chipping with Charm: SunShine...
Well, the sun is finally shining here in MN...and on my DOLLHOUSE SHELF. 
Someone on HOMETALK called it a "Time Share" it :)

Chipping with Charm: SunShine...
 And I stopped "begging" for sun in my Spring...turned SUMMER MANTEL.
We've been busy here.  
And if you follow me on INSTAGRAM, you might know that...
Chipping with Charm: #Shelfieaday for May...
 I've been having fun posting a #shelfieaday in May with some other blogging friends.
Chipping with Charm: SunShine...
 The lilacs are blooming...
Chipping with Charm: SunShine...
 ...and so are the dandelions.
Chipping with Charm: Nesting...
 We've been "bird watching".
In addition to many other wonderful things that Spring has to offer.

And with Summer approaching...
Chipping with Charm: SunShine...

I'll be spending LOTS of time with these little "charmers" :)
 Which means, I will be in and out with posts and projects.  And like usual, I'm taking the "pressure to post" off of myself.  I want to enjoy every regrets. 
Thanks for understanding!  
I will continue to post little daily junky "tidbits" of what I am up to on Instagram...that I will also "share" on Facebook and Twitter.  I hope you will follow along with me there too :)

 Happy Summer sweet friends!


  1. Isn't it grand to finally be able to enjoy the outdoors!? How on earth did you get the shots of the birds?? We have a Robin's nest on our front porch. With the zoom on my camera I've captured some great shots but none looking right down in the next. They are getting SO big - my only fear is that they'll push someone out as they grow. I told my hubby I was going to put foam and batting all around under the nest LOL.

  2. Laurel- It sounds like you have been having a wonderful, busy Spring with your sweet family. That is what it is all about, isn't it? Happy weekend to you- xo Diana

  3. Hi Laurel, Enjoy the outdoors together with your cute little ones, now that the sun is finally showing. Weren't you tempted to take the pretty eggs inside as decoration ;)? It's wonderful that you are able to watch the birdies growing.
    Have a great time!

  4. I've been joining you bird watching via Instagram. =)
