It's a "bird" thing...

...and it happens every Spring.

It was time for a sideboard "refresh" after Easter and I've been antsy to get my Pier 1 scroll-y chalkboard in place. The bunnies are all put back to bed, and this time I know where to find them. All tucked into their see-thru giant plastic tub in the basement storage room. sweet dreams...



After Easter I always go to my nature/bird/nesting theme.


I thought I wanted just a plain (gee, that's not a word that I use often) and simple sideboard vignette, but I should have known that once I had things in place that I'd be looking for something else to slap up here for more visual interest.


So I found a couple of my unframed vintage bird prints and a few of my paper play things from last year. I loved paper dolls when I was little, now it's "paper birds". I'm addicted I tell ya...



These little sweeties are cut from an old torn up bird book and mod podged onto an old dictionary page. Then framed in an antique photo album page. Click here to see the original post I did on them.
Don't you just love an ill placed 80's doorbell (below, upper right) 
for some shiny hallway fun? yuck.



An old French Ironstone tureen and English platter are my staples,
that I brought in from the Dining Room buffet.
time to mix things up.


Then I brought in these little ivy topiaries from the Living Room sofa table,
 for something a little different.


I just found a new preserved boxwood wreath too, so that may go here in place of this mossy/twiggy one. Now that the birdies are hanging around it looks a little "busy". (I whined last Christmas Season about a boxwood wreath for weeks. none to be found under a $100.)


So here's the Hallway Sideboard... for awhile anyway.
You never know what you'll find in here.
Thanks for coming by to visit!
