Spring Mini Tour!!!!!

A few weeks ago I pulled some things out to lighten up the kitchen, breakfast room and foyer. I wanted to share it all with you. Right now, after a VERY cool Spring, we are having summer like temps in the 80's!!! Crazy!  I am starting with this little vignette on top of the fridge.
 I put some moss and a bird on my scale. A tin bucket holds a vine ball and a stone bird sits on a little pedestal and is looking at a nest.

 The nest leaning on the scale is a found nest from the yard.
 On the buffet area I used two birdhouses on the ends and a birdcage that I decorated several years ago.
 The little pots of faux herbs are under these cute wire cloches.
 I had fun doing this birdcage using bamboo sticks for the pieces for the birds to sit on.

 Over by the sink I have the little stool that I found recently and LOVE!!! I put a birdhouse and a nest on it. 2 copper pieces are hung here and a basket.


My bunny lamp is being changed out to my bird lamp.
 I shared this arrangement last year, I think. It was premade but then I added to it to make it bigger and taller.
 I even found paper towels embellished with clay pots!
 Moving over to the breakfast room and the hutch.
  I am loving how the different shades of  green look with the new paint!

I have a bird and gardening theme going on. The birdhouse lamp is one of my favorites. I have a thing for lamps too:)

 On top of the hutch is a white lantern now, a bottle with some white flowers a bee skep and a demijohn.

 I got another bunch of tulips and enjoyed them for at least a week.
 I put a tall, narrow vase inside the pitcher to hold the flowers upright.
 SOOO pretty!
 In the foyer I added some candle rings and a few other Asian pieces to the steps.
 And this abacus that Joe got in his travels is now hanging here.
 So that's my mini tour for now. Things change all the time around here.:)
Thanks so much for visiting. I am sharing at these parties:
