Table top Conservatory

Little by little I'm making headway with some of my display pieces. This table top conservatory made of old windows and siding sat empty in the corner of the basement living area for months. I'm hoping, now that I have a few more decorative pieces unboxed, that I can keep it up to date with the seasons. So far I've only made one attempt, and that was in May, so it's still dressed for Spring... or late Spring... or early Summer. 

You may have gotten a glimpse of it earlier in the week when I shared about some furniture down here. You can see it hiding over there behind the recliner. 

Before the move it lived on the Sunporch, and I tried to keep it decorated seasonally, there. Problem is, that it's "dark" inside and always looks much more interesting with some kind of small lamp lit inside. This was a piece that's purely decorative and I had to be creative to justify keeping it. I'm just glad it fit on the table that was a keeper.

I wanted to do a Spring-y Bird theme with pastels, (since it was May)
but soon I'll go for a Autumnal display. (yay Fall!!)

...and one of my birdies in a nest.

let's see...
pumpkins and bittersweet with an owl or two.
maybe some twinkle lights for good measure.

I know this sounds terrible, but I'm not a Summer person, so after the 4th of July, I start having thoughts creep in about all things Fall. I know, I'm bad. Anyone else out there a shameless Autumn Addict?
