I know the calendar says it the first part of February but yesterday I got in the mood to spring
clean decorate. So forget the date, I'm moving forward into the next season. Inspired by this photo in a recent Pottery Barn catalog:
I decided to create a few little "gardening" vignettes of my own. Starting with the buffet:
Okay, so not a good photo, but included in the arrangement is one pot of amaryllis bulbs, one vintage watering can, some old glass bottles, my cats oat grass and one mini vignette inside a cloche ~ here's a better look at that:
Isn't that bird in the nest the sweetest? I think I'm "into" birds. I mean I have been outside for a while but I've never brought them inside before. Now I see them everywhere (and eggs too) and I wonder what took me so long. Combining them with the greenery really makes me think of spring and "fresh" and alive. I'm so glad I did this, it's making me happy today. Here's another little scene I compiled on my coffee table:
Surprise, surprise, another bird! With my new "Christmas" gardening books, another cloche & a birdcage. Love it too. Isn't it funny how just small changes can really perk up a room? I'm so glad that catalog came in the mail. It sure inspired me and got rid of the winter blues.
