Books, bird & clock vignette...

Sometimes it is just fun to switch things around. To many most of us it is a certain kind of therapy - shopping around our nests and coming up with new ways to refresh and bring beauty & joy into our worlds. Today was one of those days for me.

I knew I wanted to use a little bit of green - but not too it isn't quite March yet or even Spring, or anything much shy of NOT red and pink anymore..............

Oh how I just kept fussing and changing things around....and that's not like me at all, either. Usually I know exactly what I want and execute it in very expedient fashion. But not this time, not today!

I brought new things in, I opened the blinds to bring in more light. I even took a tea break. No matter how I placed things, nothing I was doing felt like it was quite working for me...............

Until I moved something and arranged it "just so," and could finally read the title of one of my particularly favorite old books.........and then I knew I had it perfect.  At least to me.

I guess it just appeased my Irish side!

Flying on over to Feathered Nest Friday!

Heading on over to Show and Tell Friday!


  1. Your arrangement looks beautiful, love how you pulled it all together! ~Marcy

  2. Love it! The clock is gorgeous, love the green easing in ... and the book is right on time! Yep, I think you nailed it! Hugs ~ Mary

  3. Love how your shopping trip around your home turned out...
    I love the vignette, specially the little bird. I have one just like that. Yup, the book looks just right.
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. It looks lovely, Michele! A very pretty vignette ~ love how the clock and wire lantern work so well together. Sometimes I have to walk away for a little bit and then when I walk back into the room I can see how it might look better. Then there are those times I just put something somewhere for the moment, while I'm moving things around, and I wind up loving it.

  5. Really pretty. Looks like my style, but lately I've been wanting a little more color. Hmmm....

  6. What a tweet errr sweet vignette! :) I always love old books and lace! :)


  7. Love this vignette. Anything with old books appeals to me! The bird is sweet!

  8. I love this vignette! Everything about it appeals to me - the old books, the bird, the lace and old clock. Wonderful!
    Hugs, Cindy
