For as long as I can remember I have had to use what I have or found to decorate my home. Things from the curb to things in the attic. Sometimes it's just as simple as re arranging or relocating things in your own house. I decided that it would be fun to share ideas with other women who share my passion.

I have been pondering and getting excited about putting together a spring mantel. I am supposed to be vacuuming...ummm, but my mantel looks perdy now...lol. Ok, I am planning on vacuuming now that it's done. (maybe). Anyway, here is what I came up with...wait, before I show you, you have to know I have been HUGELY inspired by all my blog friends.
So, here's the breakdown on how it all came together: I knew I wanted to use the bird cages and of course my little nest.
Proof that I did not eat the chocolate malt eggs!
The hanging backdrop was an idea I had after seeing a window dressing at King of Prussia. They had strips of multicolor cloth hanging from the ceiling behind their clothes and stuff. It was Free People Clothing boutique. Very cool.
I tore strips out of fabric I had in the attic, then tied them to a stick my daughter brought home from the lake last year. It was in the garage, it was perfect.
Also, I finally have a chance to used the little balls I made out of seed pods from my Rose of Sharon bushes.
Lastly, this little doodad was something I picked up at Goodwill. It is a candle holder that attaches to a bigger piece of furniture. I knew it would come in handy somewhere.
What did I do with my cute little door you ask? I just moved it!
