Hello Ladies, remember my twig wreath? He underwent another round of tweaking and fluffing and now he is the star of my Spring/ Easter vignette.
I unraveled an old little twine wreath and added it to the center to balance it a bit more and then I decorated with glue gun and eggs. And of course a nest. I love all of these natural colors together. I think it is Spring and Easter wrapped up in a nice little bundle (well circle actually).
I am not into bunnies or the bright colors that seem to go with most Easter decorations. When it comes to my living room I like neutral colors more. My Love and I are ‘present’ enough as it is, we don’t need the competition of loud colors.
I found these lanterns at a discount store (for the Dutchies: de lantaarns heb ik bij de Action gevonden). I really like their rusty, industrial look. And do you see that little nest with the bird in the back? Ha, I found another way to hide that $#@## radiator knob.
My little plaster bowl is filled with twine and feather balls along with some wooden eggs. These eggs must be a least 30 years old. I bought them as a little girl to hang in a Easter branch (in Europe willow branches decorated with little colorful (wooden) eggs and figures are a traditional Easter decoration). They were all kinds of pastel colors then, with stripes and polka dots. I painted them greenish and speckled them.
Look at him! Isn’t he handsome! Who could have thought a bunch of garden clippings could become the center of attention in my living room.
At the same discount store where I found the lanterns I discovered these rusted bird and flower ornaments. I think they add just that little bit of extra interest to my wreath.
