Spring Decorating

The piano "mantle" has been bare since I removed all the Christmas decor.
  Valentines is over and I'm tired of winter,   so I am starting my spring decorating......with a touch of Easter!

I started the vignette on the piano mantle with a long paper garland and some excelsior

I spelled out "Easter" with some metal letters  ( Michaels...$1.50 each)

I added a couple of birds and one of the real nests that fell from our trees several years ago

Marble eggs

I am making some of these plates for my booth.

  Very simple......I use  E6000 to glue a vintage cup to a pretty plate

add a bird nest and tiny little eggs to the cup.....

stick on a cute label....and you're done.
My vintage nest picture came from the auction....

I love the worn look of the frame....

and the sweet nest ...

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit....come back  soon!
