Today I'm At Modern Bird Studios - The Blog

When Megan wrote asking if I would like to participate in the Weekly Blogger Interview on her blog, Modern Bird Studios, I seriously hesitated! (After reading some of the previous blogger interviews posted on her site.)

These are not your run-of-the-mill questions, with a generous supply of witty answers. I even wrote back asking if she was sure she really wanted me...I'm not that funny. (Luckily my husband and kids get my random and dry sense of humor. I guess that is all that really counts.) But she responded she did, and I agreed. Check out the interview here!

And if you've been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know about the fabulous piece of art Modern Bird Studios made from the below photo of Max, aka French Fred.

Max and I both love the piece! He was so excited to have his photo made into a painting, he would ask nearly every day if it was coming. 

Once the portrait arrived he knew exactly where he wanted it hung, right where everyone would see it when entering his room! 


  1. I love that image of your son. Though I haven't met him it seems to tell me everything I need to know about his personality.

  2. This is ADORABLE! I love the little mustache!

    Have a happy weekend!

  3. French Fred is so sweet... :)
    am heading over to check out your interview...

  4. What a great spot! Everyone in the family must be delighted!

    Can I just say together with the other 105 who already have left comments - your bench my friend. Perfection! The whole thing came together beautifully! Can't wait to see the final picture with the chandelier. And then I am going to invite myself over! (:

    Happy weekend and Mother's day!

    Warm hugs,


    P.S Stockholm first (flying in 2 weeks) and after that Portland!
