Welcome to my blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I believe that everyone can have a beautiful home without spending a fortune! One of my favorite things to do is find creative ways to re-purpose things I already have on hand, or have picked up at yard sales and thrift stores. Join me as I share with you some of my favorite ideas for crafting and decorating, as well as travel adventures, and fun things that I pick up on my treasure hunts! Much of my work is influenced by my love all things French, nature, and of course shabby chic! I have gotten so many creative ideas from you very talented bloggers out there, and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you as well!

It's a Glitterfest!

I know that many of you have probably been wondering just what has happened with all of my glitterWhat, you say, you haven't really noticed? 
Well, that's ok!  If you have been here for any length of time, you know all about my love affair with glitter.  Yes, I have even been referred to as the Glitter Queen!  And yes, I fully admit to my addiction!
I adore covering just about anything with glitter!  Having a bad day?  Break out the glitter!
So when I was at the Pottery Barn after Christmas and spied these adorable German glass glitter birdies, I just had to have them!
 One dozen of these darling little birdies!
 Just look at those sweet little faces!
 They were calling my name to take them home!  Now I wish that I had bought more!
So here I am on a Sunday, with a long to-do list that I really need to complete.  But no, instead I am playing with little glittery birds!
 Two of the little birdies decided to perch in a nest amongst glittered pinecones and acorns!

 They are destined for crafting projects, but for now I am having fun playing with them!

 Aren't they irresistible?

 Maybe you can help me come up with some projects to use them for!

 Ok, now that I am done playing, it's high time that I start working on that to do list...............
Have a great day!!

What a great find! Seems like you have a gaggle of them (lol), you could leave two in that nest--and do something else with the rest! I just rhymed--sorry! They are cute in there... Love them!

Donna said...

Cindy Adkins said...

Very nice find. I can't wait to see all the ways you decorate with them.

We all need a 'glitter time' break from our day every now and then, right? All that sparkle keeps us happy. :)
Lucky you for finding those birdies. Enjoy!
(I love your blue pinecones, too).

Very cute! Do you know I bought some of that glitter before Christmas and I still haven't used it. I really need to sprinkle it on something!

Very cute little birdies. I didn't see these in PB. I would have scooped them up!!

Linda said...

These are SO cute, Donna...and they look wonderful in the footed dish with the pinecones!

Lynn Richards said...

These make me smile, Donna! No wonder you couldn't pass them up. You are going to put them in the BEST places, I just know it!

These little birds chirped my name too, this year. I love them. I still have them out sitting in a nest in my big bowl of pinecones.
I love the arrangement you made. Very pretty. There is just something so sweet about their little faces.

Erin@likegrandmas said...

I am laughing, because it looks like they are all looking at you!!! These are adorable and I love how you put them in a nest on a pedestal!
