This blog exists to encourage all those who have ever wanted--and needed!--a tiny getaway close to home. A workshop, playhouse, garden shed, sanctuary, mini-greenhouse, studio, home office; whatever it is you need, it IS doable, with some sacrifice, imagination, and compromise.

It helps if you're handy, too.

Birdwatching in the snow

The snows we've had lately have really brought out the birds in numbers!  I didn't get a thing done one day but watch the snow, watch the birds, and sketch...the shed is a great place for that.  I am SO glad I chose the big French doors and the window on the opposite side so I can watch from both directions. 

Our feeders are getting a workout! 


  1. Perfect activity for a snowy day--enjoying the snow and the birds. I saw my first rusty last month at Wheeler NWR in AL. Nice comparison sketches.

  2. Vickie, I'm not ENTIRELY sure whether it was a Rusty or a Brewer's...they're so much alike, with those light eyes. (Too small for a grackle.) But fun, just the same!

  3. Thats so lovely, and it is so true how relaxing it can be to watch the snow falling and birds feeding near by. I see them here from our house and from my studio and I enjoy it so much. I cant wait for spring to come so starlings and red wing black birds will come back. Really lovely paintings!! I was wondering how do you heat your workspace?

    1. Ive got a small electric heater--thinking of going to baseboard heat eventually to save floor space, though (it's only 10 x 10 and pretty full!) And thank you!
