BLUE BIRD SPRING VIGNETTE

I have a vignette I want to share with you.  Everything is either thrifted or bought on clearance.  I'll do an Easter vignette soon but until then this just makes me feel Springy! 

I love the soft blue and whites of this vignette

I put this blue bird from Michael's under the cloche
The blue birds and 'Friends' sign were on clearance at Michaels 70% off
A close up 
I used one of my milk glass bud vases and added some sweet little white flowers that are growing wild in my back yard
I love this milk glass plate with a blue and brown pattern
I used two soft blue plates and two 'spring' plates in the plate rack to carry the color up onto the wall
Thank you to all my Friends for helping me with 'baby watch'.  We are still waiting. 

I'm joining these fun parties!

Linda for 
and


I hope you will go visit these fun parties!

Hugs,
Linda

Hey Linda. I know you have been busy waiting for the little one. Miss your visits! Your vignette is darling. Ohhhh, will be thinking of you and your daughter. Take care. Susan

It looks very pretty Linda. The soft blues are just beautiful! I kept waiting all weekend just knowing when I got to my email, I would see a "Tiger" notice! LOL

MeMeSue said...

Don't you just love Michael's when they have their sales....and if you hit a 20 or 25% off coupon....Woo Hoo!! Hope that little one comes along soon! Nothing like waiting for a grandchild to arrive for grandmom hugs and kisses.

jojo said...

Pondside said...

My wish for you is that the blue Bird of happiness will fly by soon with a brand new grandchild!

Linda; those bluebirds are precious. Love your vignette--I've got to get busy around here and start some postings. Have a great week! Patty

Troy said...

It is SO not right that you have flowers growing wild in your backyard while we are still experiencing the final days of winter...

We definitely need to pack up the trailer and head south for the winters.

Your vignette is pretty & so perfectly Springy! I have the same blue birds, I love them. I like how you brought the blue up to the wall with the plates...good idea.

Hi Linda! ~ Blue & White are my two favorite colors together! Your vignette is so pretty! I love the plates on the wall, as well! I am going to have to look for a plate rack. I like yours a lot!

That is a pretty vignette Linda and I loved your plates on the wall too.

So pretty Linda! I love the soft blue and I totally love birds, great combo!!

I love those bluebirds...definitely "springy"! The Friends sign is special...We need to spend special times with Friends...like "baby watch."
We're waiting and watching with you!!!

DearHelenHartman said...

What a cheerful little bird. They do just lift your spirits looking at them. Your blog puts me in a good mood every time, reminding me whatever is lovely and admirable, think on these things.

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Looks like Spring - very pretty.

Blue Ridge Altered Art said...

Blue and white is my favorite combination so you know how much I love this display. ~~Sherry~~

Ms. Bake-it said...

Love the blue birds! You created a very lovely vignette. While I was away, I checked in occasionally to see whether or not your precious bundle had arrived. Still keeping your daughter in my prayers.

Hugs,

GardenofDaisies said...

I love your pretty little bluebirds! I wonder if my Michaels has them?

the cape on the corner said...

i just had to tell you that we are on the same wave length for spring decorating. i'm using white flowerpots from my recent thrifting, and some dollar store flowers that look pretty good to me. combined with the blues in my living room, it reminds me of your perfect vignette.

Marigene said...

Oh, I love your vignette, Linda! The little bird under the cloche is such a pretty shade of blue.

cj Schlottman said...

Hey, Girl,

Visiting your site is such a treat for me! I'm one of those women who struggle to keep my house "pulled together," as it were. Love the little bird and especially the "Friends" sign.

Namaste..........cj

Vintage Christine said...

Ah, shoot! I just dropped off a bunch of that white glass china at the thrift store. Your displays are always so lovely, and maybe one day my house will stop looking like an antique store so I can make pretty tableaux, too.

Love your cloche and the gorgeous little blue bird, so pretty. The flowers are perfect also. You have created such a lovely spring vignette. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

dogsmom said...

It gives me a spring feeling!
If only our local weather would get the incentive to cooperate.
I do not think I have ever seen anything 70% off at our Michael's. I guess ours is shopped out too fast.
Babies will come in their own sweet time.
You may be having one of those who needs to make a grand entrance.

The Joyful Thrifter said...

This Post was very inspirational! I bought some things at a thrift store today to do my own vignette! thanks for the lovely blog posts!

Smiles,

SavannahGranny said...

Love the vignette. You know you got me with the blue. I am so in love with those little bluebirds and the wildflowers are the perfect accent.
Don't tease me with a sale, I can't drive.
Thanks for visiting. I am trying to get a post TT tonight. Hugs, Ginger

Julie Harward said...

This is very pretty Linda, it makes me feel Springy too! ;D

Cheryl said...

Hi Linda,
What a pretty blue and white vignette you made...it musy have been fun putting it together. I always enjoy my visits to your blog...like visiting the home of an old friend.
Hugs,

p.s. Where's that baby?

AshTreeCottage said...

So pretty!

CAS said...

Your vignette gives a feeling of "calmness," and I'm sure you are anything but calm while waiting for the baby. I have those exact same birds in green from Michael's. Our store hasn't gone to 70% off yet, but I got them at 60%.
