I don’t do a whole lot of decorating for “smaller” holidays, or much for the seasons really (except fall!) Would you believe I didn’t even have one bird in our house before last spring? Nada. What kind of blogger am I? Sheesh.
But last year I won these beauties over at my friend AnNicole’s place and they started the collection:
By “collection,” I mean those and my Dollar Tree birds I used on the dining table. That’s the extent of it. ;)
You want to know another secret? I didn’t have a nest in this house until last month:
But now I’m kind of in love with them. Cauuteness! (Nests aren’t just for Easter, right? I’m a nest newbie.)
Confession number three – part of my spring decor involves faux flowers.
I know! OH the HORRORS!!! But I try to only use those that look real. Like somewhat, kinda, if you squint, “real”:
Years ago I picked up a wire vase I loved, but once I got it, I had no idea what to do with it. I ended up weaving ribbon through the wires, then put floral foam down inside, and filled in the rest around the flowers with moss:
Speaking of faux – I have used these on our front door for the past couple of years:
I love em! There are a TON of colors/varieties available. I used white for a pitcher on my DIY Ballard Design shelves:
When I had the burlap out for the dining room table, I got a wild hair to use it one more spot:
These are actually candleholders we’ve had for years. I just used double stick tape to wrap it around each one, then added ribbon to the top and bottom to hide the raw edges:
I got daffodils for the first time a couple weeks ago as well, and I just threw these out a few days ago – I couldn’t believe how long they lasted! Perfect in my jute vase:
They were CHEAP!! I believe $1.49 a bundle? I use a little trick to make the flowers a bit fuller – a few plastic shopping bags in the bottom give them just enough height.
I hope you are having a great week! It’s spring break for us, so we are enjoying lots and lots of family time. LURVE. :)
