My Little Birdie Told Me

My Little Birdie Told Me

JackieI guess for a personal style preference I would say I fancy a little bit of vintage renaissance, steam punk, gypsy, and maybe even a little Pirates of the Caribbean!! But most might be a little inappropriate unless you’re in Hollywood or a rock band! Never the less, I will attempt to put my own twist on the styles I like, and no matter how fancy the party dress…. I say bare foot is the way to go!

Do what you love….right?!

 

On a decorative note, I delight in SO MANY different things, styles, and colors…..and painful indecision for what I like best. It has been very difficult to pick one style to have myself “known” to create or re- create.

Therefore….I choose ALL!!

 

Hi, I ‘m Jackie, and I figured the only way to satisfy my itch, so to speak, is not to limit myself to any one thing. That being said, if I like a piece of furniture and it “speaks to me” whether its french provincial, rustic farmhouse, contemporary, or just plain antique/vintage, I will enjoy recreating it into something new and exciting! If there’s a story behind a piece, I love it more… And sometimes find it hard to part with….and sometimes, I DON’T !!! I can always find a place in my house for something when I absolutely love it!

 

Just Create

In the past I have had many reserves about doing this sort of thing, fears that no one would like what I do, but as I move forward and ‘just create’, I don’t over think it, I keep it simple, and ultimately folks like it!

I love tchotchkes (just ask my very patient husband who calls them knick knacks and paddy wacks!) So, if I see something with potential or an item that can be made into something else… well you get the picture… snatch it up and get to work!

My Little Birdie

I adore birds and I’ve owned this little guy since he was 4 months old, he is the incentive for the name “my little birdie told me” although what he really does is just mumble a whole lot of nothing… non stop all day…. he has a crazy personality and spends a lot of time laying on his back bonking himself in the head with his little stuffed toys; he is like owning a perpetual 2 year old… never a dull moment in our home!

I am a garage sale junkie, I’ll scour the local thrift stores, flea markets, old barns and attics and I also don’t mind picking something up off the side of the road.

It is very true… one mans “junque” really is another mans (or woman’s) TREASURE!

I find much joy in doing what I do but never do I want to be so caught up in myself or any project that I lose track of what is most important to me in my life; my awesome God, my beautiful husband, my “kids” (2 dogs and a bird), family and friends! And at the end of the day these ARE the things that really, really matter!

 

Psalm 18:2
THE LORD IS MY ROCK, AND MY FORTRESS, AND MY DELIVERER; MY GOD, MY STRENGTH, IN WHOM I WILL TRUST…
