Hello my friends, happy first day of Spring!
it is an absolutely gorgeous day here in Utah.
I have loved having my sheep collection out on my kitchen table, but after the first sighting of a Robin in my garden;
I was ready for a change.
I made this giant nest last year using the trimmings from my Trumpet vine. I had planned on dressing it up. I tucked in a few large feathers here and there and then it sat in my craft room for an entire year. Can you believe it?
I believe things happen for a reason and this just so happens to be one of those times. It wasn't until after I saw my friend, Joanne's gorgeous nests that I knew just what I wanted to do with mine. I will be sharing a tutorial on it later. Joanne may be selling some at 'fleology', a vintage flea market in May. It doesn't feel right to share until after that. :)
You know you can never stop with just one. (wink)
I dressed up a couple more small nests that I already had. Wouldn't it be fun to have one sitting at each place setting?
I've set the table for a spring luncheon.
I laugh when I look at these darling egg plates. I saw them at Pier 1 and I tried really hard, (honest I did) to not buy them. Well, when hubby and I was in St. George I caved and ran in and
picked up a set.
It's a set of 4 and they have 1-4 eggs on each.
I scored these gorgeous mother of pearl napkin rings at a thrift shop. I had to pay $10, but they were marked $35. The entire box is mother of pearl. It's as pretty as the rings.
The bird spheres are a recent gift from my secret pal in a club that I am in. It just happened to be my cousin, Betty this year. She knows my love for birds!
I found a set of pretty 4 season plates by Currier and Ives last year. This one is 'Spring'.
I just bought the bird figurines at 'Vintage Whites' last weekend. The seller dropped them from $16 to $12 for me. One might say that she made me an offer I couldn't refuse. lol!
I love the soft subtle colors.
The bird plates are perfect for dessert. I bought them at Home Goods last year. Another tried, but couldn't resist purchase.
I've elevated them a little on an old chippy grate.
I added scalloped edged purple teacups. I love how they bring the purple blossoms out in the plates. You guessed it, both cups and plates are thrift finds.
Last year everything bloomed about a month early. I remember having blossoms to add to my spring table. This year they are still in bud.
Another thrift find bird is holding tarnished silver spoons.
And these cuties are shakers.
I hung my teacup trio made by my friend, Dolly from the chandy.
I'm wishing you and EGG-tra special first day of Spring!
