Spring is just around the corner! I decided to put winter away and start decorating with spring in mind. I have seen these cute little birds on other blogs so of course I had to go to the Dollar Tree and get some for myself. My original plan was to attempt a faux mercury glass treatment, but I didn't like it. I ended up painting them ivory and using a black antiquing glaze over that. I love the result - they resemble concrete.
I dug out the candle stick I used for my fall table and topped it with a small grapevine wreath and some spanish moss to make a comfy little nest for one of the birds. The largest bird is sitting on a little flower pot I turned upside-down. The flowers are in a glass vase I picked up a while back at a great little shop here where I live. (Olde Homer House for any locals!)
I think it turned out very cute!
