spring is slowly creeping in

i have finally started to decorate for spring.
my inspiration is...well, nature.
i am using things that my daughter and i collected on our 'nature hikes'-as she calls them.
things like
bark,
mica,
bird eggs,
bird nests,
rocks,
and dried pods.

i also used this altered canvas that i created last fall.
while it is not spring themed i thought the colors went well.
just more white and creme that i can add!


here is a close up of the bird eggs that we find all spring and summer long.

the nest is really deep so i can really fill it up with all sorts of eggs.

i know the robin eggs, but i am not sure what the other eggs are.

here is a little apothecary jar i planted some baby tears in.

i wish my camera was a better one, i have moss growing in the jar too.

looks like miniature ferns.

but, alas, my camera doesn't do good on close ups.

may have to talk my hubby into getting me a better camera!


hope everyone is having a beautiful day.

i am linking up to

the shabby nest-frugal friday

I love your ideas. They make things from nature look so elegant. I love the rocks and moss in a jar. I have so man rocks my kids have collected. What a great idea to use them like this. I my have to find me some jars!

I have to ask, is your signature photo really your farm and did you take the photo? I love it. I was raised in the big cities of the world and always dreamed of living on a quiet farm... your spring ideas are wonderful.. great blog!

Love the touches of spring. I need to start infuses my house with a hint of spring. There is still a slight chill in the air but I can feel spring wanting to surge. Love the apothecary jar with the green...makes me want to do that!
