Oh, how I wish the weather would cooperate because I have Spring Fever. Yep, my house is craving fresh flowers, brighter colors and maybe a little birdie or two…
I actually wasn’t thinking about a bird’s nest cloche when I first spotted this little cheese dome set at Goodwill for $1 (yep, that’s right… one dollar). But somehow this little gem was chirping sweet nothings in my ear.
So of course when I got it home I gave it a fresh coat of Pure White Annie Sloan chalk paint. Once it dried I distressed the edges with some sandpaper.
For this project I only had to buy a few minor supplies: moss from the Dollar Tree, a little nest from Michael’s and robin’s eggs from my local antique store, Red Posie.
Just a couple minutes to throw the supplies together and the end result is making me sing a sweet song to Spring.
Oh, don’t you just love robin’s eggs?
Ah, a beautiful yet simple addition to my home for Spring. Now if only someone would tell Mother Nature that it’s supposed to be about 30 degrees warmer outside so I can hear the real birds chirping outside my window again.
