Spring is for the birds!

Happy Spring!!


It’s Springtime at the Hepworth House and I’ve been painting and crafting like crazy trying to get ready for it.

I bought this stand and wooden box as a set at Gwill for $1.99.

(I showed you it mid March in Keepin’ Myself Busy.)

I am using the wooden planter for another in-progress Spring project, so I was left with just the frame. I totally lucked out and found this platter at Wal-Mart on clearance. I bought it and prayed it would fit.

(It fits!)

Part one of this post is a success!! Now for part two…

I am jumping on the Dollar Store bird-wagon!


Aren’t they just adorable? Well, the shape at least (not the color)?!

A little Heirloom White spray paint later…


So now I have this stand and these birds… hmmmm…

I decided to “kill two birds with one…” Wait. That is not an appropriate phrase for this, is it?


Throw in a little moss…


Chirp. Chirp.


Happy Spring!

Check back tomorrow for a fun Spring vinyl project!!!
