I think I’m ready for spring. In my mind anyway, so as my hutch display needed some brightening up, I went to my newest favourite store, The Country Pumpkin. Serious addiction going on there. I want everything I see!
So I have to be very careful and choose wisely. I tried to think of things I could use for spring, right through summer (if necessary). I started with a new table top runner – light green checks – gorgeous! Oh and that yellow birdhouse – must have . . . hmmmm . . . I love that little black lantern – how very country! That pretty green and white berry wreath – Superstore . . . OK, I did buy that bird too. But, I did re-use my antique books, chicken wire basket and of course my old window frame mirror stays put.
Then I made a banner!! Yippee! how long have I wanted a banner? I simply cut the banner from cardstock, printed the word spring, cut the letters out and sewed them onto the paper. Then I stitched along the edges of the banner and added some paper flowers and other embellishments (of which I have a trillion due to my earlier paper scrapping days). So easy! I didn’t try to make it perfect either – I just had fun.
I love my old window frame – so chippy!
I love using birds in my decor …
… and bird houses …
… and wreaths.
… just love!
