Our Front Door

After the holidays our front entry became naked and boring once again..

 I finally got around to sprucing it up a little... 
I hung the wreath I just posted about, added a mat, and then flanked the door
with some plants that not even I can kill! LOL

Just a few little changes to help welcome spring in :0)
It's made it  a lot more welcoming to come home to also!

Our next project is the laundry room..we are in the process of building the cabinetry now,
so soon I will get to share that with you.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

Spring Wreath

I've had this photo of a wreath I loved in my files for a long time. 
I finally got around to making my own version! 

This was my inspiration photo.
I can't remember where I saw it, I save so many pics in my files
that I just can't remember!

It's so perfect for springtime and it's been feeling a lot like spring around here!

So, to get started I made some little eggs out of my favorite clay:

I let them air dry and then painted them with acrylic paints. 
I bought a floral stem and  nest at the craft store and just added some feathers to the nest.

Glued my nest in place, stuck the flowers all around and; Voila!
Here's my version of the wreath:

I really like the way it came out, and the little eggs are my favorite part!

I can't wait to see this movie again..

The book is a thousand times better, but I still loved it.
Eric Bana is in it! What's not to love? hehe

I think he made a perfect Henry.
It's such a sad story, but beautiful at the same time.
