Metamorphosis Monday-Hurry Spring!

The winter storm has left me couped up in the house for 4 days..a very long time for me.  I did however reluctantly take down the decorations from the baby shower.  My room looked bare and not "girly" anymore....I'm a little sad about to cheer myself up I decided to go to work on my side table in the dining room and redecorate it again.  So here's my metamorphosis: 





I put my cloche front and center on the table with that sweet little nuthatch inside.  She's watching over her nest.

I added a robin's nest to fill in the bare area under the cloche.  I'm using a birdie candlestick to hold up a plate I love since I don't officially have a "cloche holder".   

I added a cyrstal basket full of bird's eggs....

and some yellow forsythia which always says "spring"  is here...  

even though it looks like this outside

my little table says "Hurry Spring"!

Hope everyone has a great week and makes a visit to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to check out all the amazing transformations!  Susan's porch is so fun to see during construction.  Thanks Susan for sharing the prettiest porch I've ever seen!


  1. Hi Sonia,
    Your side table looks so pretty with the birds and nests. My mantel is done up in the same theme, it really does remind me of spring. It will be here before you know it!
    Thanks for stopping by, and the sweet comment.
    Have a great week.
