sunday morning spring things!

fairy garden 2
Good morning bloggy pals! Its a sunshiny day out.. not particularly warm, but at least it'll be sunny. Gotta count whatever blessings we get.. and I think sunshine is a blessing!
 fairy garden
So friday I put easter away.. packed it all up and said so long til next year to so many cute little pastel eastery things! I hate packing holidays up.. and then putting my house back together or decorating for the next holiday is so much work!!
 spring robin
Of course there is no holiday coming up to decorate for, so I had to try to remember what normal is for my house.. guess what? there is no NORMAL!! There are holidays and seasons. this is spring.. it is probably the least decorated and the most normal time for my house. I sort of went with a springy gardeny birdie theme.
 blue bird
I had to drive all the way to the city to buy some moss.. I know.. the things we do. Drive an hour to buy moss.. pretty crazy to most people. buy hey, we gotta have what we gotta have! ya know! 
 bird in nest
(oh dear.. the cat got this bird.. notice the teeth marks in his hat!  I better make him a new hat!)
so I put together a few little vignettes with birds and nests and and tiny mushrooms. and I took a few pictures this morning. There are some more things that I didnt get shots of that maybe I will on another day. Plus I'm wanting to make a special bird and nest sometime soon.
 under glass 
I've been lacking in the creative dept this past week, I dont think Ive even sat at my craft table at all, other then to pluck my eyebrows the other morning! lol! HOpefully I'll be back there making something soon. Like I said I've got this bird chirping in my brain!
 underglass 2
Today is little Tonys birthday party here. Steaks, shrooms, asparagus, cheesy potatoes, and the kids are bringing chicken wing dip, taco salad, cake and ice cream, garlic bread and drinks! tomorrow I seriously have to get back on track with weight watchers!!
 mushroom garden
OK.. just between you and me.. I'm sick of saying that.. "back on track with weight watchers". I've been very very very bad. I just need to knock it off and quit eating everything in sight. enough is enough. I have a wedding coming up august 18th, (they changed the date.. my family doesnt do anything in a traditional way. like plan a wedding a year in advance with a date set that cant be changed...)lol.. actually my family tends to be traditionally untraditional!  anyways.. I will lose weight by then!!!
(picture of buffy.. heehee.. she fits into the bird theme!!)
Got my camera battery charging and I will take a bunch of pics today. I bought Torry pie a great big orange ball that he can chase around the yard this after noon.. And I have bubbles! grammies gonna play with her baby pies! Okeedokie girlfriends.. Off I go to clean my porch and bathroom, the birdcage and the litter box! 
have a very lovely sunday!!

Happy Sunday to you Viv, I can always count on your blog to make me smile!! Enjoy your day with your family, sounds like a great meal!!

Viv - you would have loved Birdsong Two - lots of birds and a project where we made a sweet little mushroom. I'll post pictures on my blog soon of the mushroom project.
Love your birdies - and the one with holes in the hat - put some stickles on there and nobody will even know. :)

I am quite sure your bird theme is one I wouldn't tire of. The robin is beautiful. The mushrooms work perfectly. Hoping that you have a chance to slow down for a minute but who could resist a day with bouncy balls and bubbles...smiles..Renee

I knew when you talked about creating birds and nests, they would be fabulous. You outdid yourself...once again. Love the vignettes. I'm smitten with those toadstools too.

Have a fabulous Sunday celebrating with family. Your dinner menu sounds yummy.

Love those sewn mushrooms!
I can't believe it's back-to-work tomorrow! I'm not ready, this weekend flew by. I went to Vidler's and out for breakfast w/ my mom and S today and then mulched part of my garden. Got my swap item finished for Sandy's get together! But now I want a day to do NOTHING! hope you have a good week and it goes by fast so it's the weekend again! xo

Happy belated to Tony! The weather was awesome today- which was a relief since I was taking my Mom to an outdoor antique market. BTW, where did you get all those fabric mushrooms? They are too cute!
