Inspired by Green Plaid

I love sitting out back. This view never gets old. This tree is amazing, and it only gets better with age. I bought this wreath from Michaels with a 50% off coupon bringing it to only $15. Next, I used some burlap from a different wreath and added two more burlap ribbons, one with polka dots and the other is a netting burlap, combined with some green ribbon to make a bow. Wow! What a …

Pink please💕

Pink is such a wonderful color. Everyone is going crazy this year with pink, and I don’t blame them. It has been a long time since pink has been so popular. 💕💕 I’ve just added a few touches go my sunroom. In front of my fireplace I have my wooden bird and a pink chair that I borrowed from my daughter. On the chair is a pretty pink pillow I just love it. 🌺🌺 The pink …

Baby Birds

The eggs have hatched! Oh look at the babies they are so cute 🐦🐦. The first picture is from two days ago, and this is from today. Now of course the mama doesn’t sit on them anymore, but she is close by. I was on my porch yesterday so the mother and father were conversing rather loudly. I guess they didn’t like me being outside. Well the weather is finally accepting that it’s spring. The …

Birds Nesting

Well it’s Friday, the start of the weekend. I’m going to be busy putting away Easter. Oh what fun! I really don’t want to because it’s so early, but goodbye Easter bunnies and Easter eggs and Easter baskets. Now changing the subject because this is what I’m dealing with. I haven’t bought any hanging flower baskets yet because it has been so cold here. The birds usually build their nests in them. Well momma bird …

White Blossoms for Easter

These white blossoms just scream spring. I tucked some blue easter grass into the mouth of the vase and tied a blue bow around it. The two wooden bunnies are watching over their egg. In the center of the buffet, the glass vase holds some purple Easter grass that compliments the lilac eggs. The feathers add some texture. The stained glass plate combines many shades of purple, silver, and blue brings together the vase with …

Wisteria Vine

OK, now understand, this is a project that should really have been done last year.  Finding someone to build something isn’t that easy.  Then the problem was that the foliage started to come in, and it was very hard to work around it.  So this had to be put off until now.  As you can see this had to be taken down.  The branch had started to wrap itself around my railing. So we had …

Spring Green Sunroom

My sunroom fireplace mantel is very green for spring (and St. Patrick’s Day). This apple tree is an oldie but a goodie. I am thinking that it may be time to take it apart and repurpose it. There is a grape vine cone underneath all the apples and grapes. I can reuse those for something else next year. These two metal bird candle holders are vintage Pottery Barn. I also have a matching bird cage …

Blue Birds on Branches

I’ve continued the bird theme over on the buffet in my dining room. I told you that I love vases that I can use for every season. These beautiful green branches scream spring. Can you spy the little blue bird perched on a branch? The runner is a mellow yellow that picks up on the yellow of the eggs.  There is a feather wreath around bird dish and a metal tray off to the side again …
