Spring has Sprung!

The grass has riz....I wonder where them birdies is?
I have been lollygagging around - not quite feeling myself
but not quite sick - somewhere in between.  I thought
maybe if I shared this little Spring vignette I might make
us all feel a little more hopeful that the rain/snow will
stop and the sun will shine again!

I got the adorable felted wool bunnies at a thrift store
down Island.   They, and a few nests with birds and eggs
are my only Spring/Easter decor at the moment.
The little round brass frame was 99 cents with a picture
cut out of a magazine from the 50's in it.  I replaced it with
a little collage I made with graphics from Karen at the
Graphics Fairy.  I love the tarnished brass and the little
dimpling along the frame - it has a lovely old chain to
hang from too.
The bird's nest below was totally covered in 80's style
dried flowers that were so dusty and old they almost
scared me off of spending the whopping 50 cents this nest was
priced at....but a little peeling of good old glue gun sticky
and off came the old.  A quick rinse and laid out to dry
removed most of the old dust.  Now a lovely little
ceramic robin calls it home (altho the eggs should be
blue - no?).  A modest few silk flowers and voila - a whole new look!
My little white ceramic bird was a gift from a Christmas
party exchange.  I held onto her while people were stealing
and exchanging gifts all around me!
The whole little vignette is comprised entirely of thrift
store finds with the exception of the white bird. Even the
lamp was a thrifty find at $5. The silver tray the bunnies
are sitting on - $3.
Now....c'mon Spring....we're ready!!

d me.
