Feeling a Little Springy???

Hi Bloggerettes!  I don't know about you but everytime I look at a Pottery Barn catalog I want everything in it!!! 
So, I thought I would just try and copy a table vingette.  Here's my version.

I picked up a few of the clay pots and the wire basket at Lowe's Home Improvement Store, added a lemon herb and ivy plant.
I had the bird nests already. 

After looking at the photos I decided to add some spanish moss, and some more birds, a bird tray and another stick basket with

I had to show off the burlap and ruffled table cover that I made. It's for sale in my etsy shop. 

Might not be as put together as a PB table, but I kinda like it and it makes me think of Spring.

You did a better job than Pottery Barn. Don't let them see this! You should be a stylist! I'd like to find a wire basket. The ideas are limitless!

So pretty. I love the use of the clay pots, they just make everything look so like spring. The ivy, flowers and nests are so petty and the table linen is stunning. Gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

Looks fabulous. I looked for your ruffled table runner but I think you must have sold it. Now, I am gonna be FORCED to try making one and I have not a clue if I can make a ruffle. :(

Paula said...

Dear Sissie,

Beautiful vignette! I know it is better than the catalog!!! I love the use of herbs and ivy, the nest with the little chicks is so sweet, and the clay pots, wire basket and glass cloche are all perfect! I love the runner you made. It is so pretty! You did a wonderful job!
Love, Paula

GypsyNurse said...

I love it!

My name is PJ. said...

I enjoy PB catalogs too! In the one that came yesterday, there was a GIANT abacus that was singing my name.....I can't get it out of my head..it's a good thing I don't have a spot for it.

Your vignettes are charming and well put together. Is there anything you can't do? Were you born this way or do you attribute it to Grandma's attic? If someone sits next to you, does your cleverness rub off? Maybe? Just a wee bit? Oy.


HI sissie!

your table scape is worthy of PB...
that's pottery barn, not peanute butter, right!lol

well done! I love everything you make!
