Frenchy Pillows

I know that I just showed you the updated (that would be "this week") sunporch, but I found some wonderful new pillows that I wanted to show you, and it just so happened they landed on the little wicker settee out there.

I have a small obsession with birdies this time of year, and when I saw this embroidered birdie pillow at one of my favorite places I had to have it...and one to go with it.

And can you see that they're burlap?
This was one of my "ohmygosh, how stinkin' cute" moments.

You know it's cute, when it's "stinkin' cute".

Taken from illustrations from the Natural History archives, 
birds and butterflies...
and on burlap!

When I first saw these I thought they had been screen printed on,
but it's actually embroidery...

As I predicted last week, we're heading right in to summer.
 Today is supposed to be in the upper 80's.

 Soaking up the sunshine...
Bird watching...

And here are a few pics from Robin's Vintage Suitcase
where I nabbed these cuties.

Santos dolls.

cow candleholders...

and Staffordshire Rabbits

Robin always has wonderful inspiration.

and just a reminder...
if you've never checked out The Marketplace,
it's a fun way to shop Etsy for newly listed items.

Butterflies and a French Message Board

I love doing things "themed" with nature, especially in the Spring.
Little green shoots and buds have me all excited.
So when I was thinking about Debbie's Copy Cat Challenge,
I of course wanted it to be something that echoed the essence of Spring.

I keep this French Ribboned Message Board
on my computer desk with notes and photos and cards.
I had to edit it a little to make it photo-worthy,
then I added the little paper butterflies.

Just the right amount of Springy-ness.

My younger daughter loves to "embellish" and personalize her notes.
makes them more special...

Here is my inspiration,
Victoria Magazine, May 2001 cover.

Debbie's kicking off a week of Spring time fun.
Be sure and check out the other copy cats at the party.
