some winter vignettes, sorta...








well, i tried to do some wintery vignette's but after Christmas is over...I'm ready for spring! so they're kinda sorta wintery/the hope of spring to come! i bought the "nest" sign& the nest w/ evergreens after xmas @ the store i rent a booth in {Vintage Charm in Old Town Clovis,Ca. if ur ever in the neighborhood;) } at 50 % off. they cost me only 6.50!the little bird i got at dollar tree last spring and gave him a makeover w/ some s.w. "sea salt" paint.the robin's eggs were from home goods- they came in a big box of varying sizes for only $6! i use them everywhere all year, even though they were out for Easter decor in the store. :) the blue green candle sticks were also a home goods find a couple of yrs ago. the big glass vase is from southern living @ home- i believe it's called "madeline".i bought the blue and white sparkly pine cones @ walmart for .50 ea. after xmas. i made the yarn balls in the vase from styrofoam balls and yarn purchased also at walmart. i had the books and just covered them w/ wrapping paper from the dollar store. i guess ur getting a pretty good idea about where i shop retail! anyway, i love it and i hope you do too! it adds a little sparkle where there wasn't any after my xmas decor was dethroned! a few days later, i added this plate given to me by a friend and this little lamp given to me by my sister. Which way do you like better? i think they're both fun, the one w/ the vase of pine cones and yarn balls is probably a little more wintery, but oh well! i really love spring! thanks for visiting and i hope you'll leave a comment to let me know u stopped by! until next time, keep creating! {linking to...my cottage charm-nifty thrify thursday's and wallet friendly finds } and french country cottage for

  1. Hi - Your winter vignettes are lovely! It is a difficult time of year to decorate because, where I live in Canada, we have at least 2 - 3 more months of winter weather until the spring. Spring is certainly in the air in your home! Have a great weekend!

  2. Your vignette is so pretty! I've been in a "nest" frame of mind, too! Love the beautiful print above your mantel! Hopped over from Treasures and Trinkets party...

  6. I love bird stuff, so I love your vignette. I'm especially happyy to see that pink painting. I have the same one in a gold frame and have debated painting it white. Now I know it would look good. Not sure if I will use the picture right now, but when I do, I'll be more serious about painting it now.
