Branching Out....


I have become completely obsessed with this image shot by Erica George Dines for Southern Living!! 

Since I started hearing the Peepers last night, It's time to bring a little Spring inside our home.

We are lucky enough to have a pleathera of flowering trees on our property such as Apple, Pear, Magnolia and Forsythia, which with a simple pair of clippers, bleach, a rubber mallet and a fabulous vase...
you can have a gorgeous floral display that lasts for weeks!!

I have the table and now I am on the hunt for those AMAZING sea glass hued vases!

My absolute favorite thing to do is...
(which has delighted the Monster since he was little)

is to carefully place bird's nests filled with tiny faux eggs between the branches...
A few butterflies, birds and bees complete the look and become hidden behind flowers as they begin to bloom, depending on where they are placed..

I dare say...
I have found a few rubber snakes and rubber spiders
hidden amongst the flora and fauna...
But 
I quickly catch my breath and realize that this is purely a collaborative work of art that The Monster and I are enjoying, learning from and constantly ever-evolving...
