Well this summer really has been "for the birds" for me due to health issues and I really didn't get to enjoy it much or do a lot of decorating. I'm going to spend the next few posts catching up a bit and hopefully I'll be back blogging full force for fall. I can't miss blogging during my favorite season!
Today, however, "for the birds" is dedicated to lovely little birds and has a more positive connotation. I'm going to show you a corner of my dining room that hosts my bird themed treasures.
Back in the spring I found this cool "junk light cover thingy?"" I originally planned to use it on my garden but it ended up making a pretty cloche display on my shabby green side table.
I used old lace and ribbon scraps to make her a dress and an old tiny doily for her hat. A vintage watch piece announces the season.
Here is another illustration from the same 1800's book as the picture in the cloche. You will probably be seeing several more pictures from the same book coming up in future posts. The artwork is just beautiful.
Well I have enjoyed getting a real post up today! I am looking forward to getting caught up on your lovely blogs and linking up to some parties this week. If you love birds, nests, birdhouses, etc., take a look at my "For The Birds" board on Pinterest.
Have a great Sunday!parties:
