Welcome March! I have had this vision of a more natural approach to March this year. I love the way it turned out. It was really inexpensive too.
I made this mirror for FREE!
I was driving down the road and noticed that some people had moved and had a bunch of
(treasures) by the curbside. I made a quick u turn. I picked out this mirror. It was naked when I found it!
I used wood (I think they are called, shims?) that my daughter and I found on our walk the other day. We wandered into a construction site...shhhhh.
Anyway, I used a little gorilla glue and used stones from the yard to hold them down.
Those wreaths were $1.99 for both! I found them at a garden shop on clearance...yay!
I will say, I splurged on the Ivy...I love plants, and it was what I had envisioned in my head. I made stand last week or so. I covered the pot with tooling scraps I had.
I finally have my own little nest! I fell in love with this look from Miss Mustard Seed bloghttp://missmustardseed.blogspot.com/2011/02/fake-out.html
I finally found a cheese tray at a local thrift store. For the nest part, I used a bunch of string from my Thanksgiving runner made of burlap from Thanksgiving.
It looked like something I could use later.
Those eggs are edible! They are the Easter malt balls...yummm. I'm almost out, because I keep eating them.
For April, I may just add some color to the basic theme going on here. If it warms up enough, I will be out working on painting some other "treasures" I picked up. :)
