Little Spring Birds

20160406_150101ec br title

One of the things I enjoy most about spring is the reappearance of birds. I’ve begun to hear the sound of woodpeckers in the woods when I step outside. And I’ve seen a few little birds flitting from branch to branch. Last week, while we were having dinner at a restaurant in town, through the window looking out to the restaurant’s courtyard I spied a robin, my first robin this season. I know that soon there will be many more birds in our trees and they will be busy building nests and raising their young. That prospect makes me smile. In the meantime, I can enjoy a few little birds in our spring decor.


Cheerful spring bird pillows sit on two chairs that flank the credenza.


A sweet little bird rests in a nest atop a pillar candle holder. Pussy willow stems from my daughter’s yard are held by a rustic wood vase.


Little blue ceramic birds sit near the base of two pillar candle holders that hold ombre blue candles.


Chippy white birds flank a lantern on top of the hutch.


On the base of the hutch a white pottery bird planter (picked up at Lowes) holds a tiny succulent.


The two wood planters (purchased at Magnolia Market on my trip in February) behind the white bird hold small succulent plants as well.



Another Magnolia Market purchase, a pottery planter, is part of the current dining room centerpiece and holds a Boston fern. Another chippy brown bird and a nest complete the vignette in a recycled wood tray.



Right now at Our MT Nest spring is for the birds!

Do you have any little spring birds hanging around your nest? What dominates your spring decor?

  1. What a cute post! Yes the birds are out singing their song and feeding off of our feeders regularly and I love it. It’s been too cold to have our doors open but we’re warming up and will be able to enjoy them a lot more. I like your pussy willows in the wood vase- great combo! I recently ordered the white magnolia pottery piece and love it. Cute vignette with the bird and nest that you created!
