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 much.....as 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!

  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.
