Since Mother Nature
is NOT listening to me, I thought I'd bring a little spring
inside the house, starting with the family room.
My mantel was feeling a little drab. With a $0 budget and an
urge to create something otta nothin'...
around the house I went, robbing a little from here and there.
I pulled out a picture frame that I've been hiding
under the couch, and printed "Spring". Pretty original huh?
I wanted the sign to read simple and clean, so Spring it is.
The bird's nest is real.
Mr. vG and the kidlets brought it in during the winter.
Old milk bottles filled with white navy beans make for a sweet candle holder.
The other candles shown are sitting on a pair of silver candle sticks turned upside down.
Twine can be very effective for decorating on the cheap.
The curtain tie backs can be made to your desired size or thickness.
I simply cut 9 equal lengths of twine, and with 3 groups of 3, made one main braid.
so they've been adopted by the family room where they will be well loved!
The turquoise and green pillows together make a cheerful combination.
Speaking of pillows...
before Christmas, I won a giveaway and started a post
but completely forgot about it!!! What a smuck I am!
I won a sweet ring and this beautiful "keep calm" pillow by Little Miss Momma
from a Tatertots & Jello giveaway! These are seriously 2 of the SWEETEST girls
