Ah, spring! It’s my favorite season and it’s just days away. I’ve got plans to start my spring cleaning so I haven’t done a lot in the way of decorating, but a little bit here and there. A new blog read, There’s No Place Like Home, is inviting everyone in blogland to share some photos of their Spring and Easter decorations, so I thought I’d join in. I bought a package of three small bird nests with eggs a couple weeks ago at The Christmas Tree Shops for like $1.49. I knew I wanted to use one on a wreath and originally I’d planned to use a grapevine wreath and some silk flowers, but I found a wreath at Michael’s the other day (on sale, of course) that is so much prettier than I could make — plus, the cost ended up being less than if I’d bought supplies to make my own! I just stuck one of the nests at the bottom and hung it on our coat closet.
The only other thing I’ve done is our mantle. I just arranged two silk forcythia stems, the last two nests, and these two little birds that I bought at the gift shop when we were on vacation last month. Nothing terribly fancy, but it reminds me that spring is on the way!
