Calling All Birds

I admit it...I love birds, and although I usually don't do much theme decorating, birds have started flocking to my house. :)  
You saw my last post with the Robin pillow on the deck, click here for that post. Well...

...now, they're in the entry...on the chest, and...

...on the bench.

I found this cute bird pillow at Marshall's the other day. I already had the blue one that's next to it. 
Yay, I actually have things that go together...sometimes. I'm trying to add more blues, which is a challenge, since I use a lot of green.

A bird picture, which I've had for a couple of years, is on the chest.





Of course, if you have birds, you need a bird's nest.

The daffodils are from the yard. I can't believe we're supposed to get freezing temps Wednesday night. Poor plants...so many are budding, and I guess they'll get frozen.

Wishing Spring would be here to stay.

I like the way you used the tray to arrange things! I need to learn to do that! Oh, and I love birds, too! The pillow is beautiful! Sweet hugs!

Sarah said...

Babs, I think your flock of birds looks stunning. You make me want to go buy a new pillow. '-)
Sad to think that a freeze is going to nip all the buds. I noticed that a lot is budding in my garden too.

Kelly said...

Your bird accessories are so pretty! I love the basket tray you used on the chest in your foyer too. I can't believe you already have daffodils growing outside! Yours are early. They're very pretty.

I love the bird pillow, I sure wish I had more species of birds around our house, I love to take pictures of them, I would love to get some pictures of those bright colored beauties...

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

The bird pillow and the bird picture are both so pretty. Those and the yellow daffodils all say Spring!

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

Love the bird theme Babs! I like the basket and the pillow
I'm so jealous that your daffodils are out already! You can save the plants from freezing by covering them up with plastic or cloths or both. We're heading down to zero tonight- winter still has it's grip up here.

Sylvia said...

I enjoy birds too. Your pictures are really lovely. Don't you love to listen to the birds sing,they have started to sing in my trees,guess they're happy that spring is on the way, and soon I hope,even if is does freeze again.

Poppy @ With a Dash of Color said...

Another pretty pillow! I love decorating with birds and nests too:) What a charming vignette on your pretty chest! I love the pitcher of golden daffodils, the harbinger of spring.Hugs, Poppy

Moni - Zuhaus at Home said...

Very pretty! I love the bird picture and pillow….perfect companions! The daffs just made me smile, I hope all the buds will bloom in your yard!!

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

I love all things bird related...your foyer is beautiful...love the print and the pillow and cannot believe your daffodils are blooming!!

Love the birds and your picture and pillow are stunning. Such a beautiful foyer and vignette. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

Carol said...

Your vignette and the bench with the lovely pillows certainly evokes "Spring-time" thoughts. I read on someone's blog just recently that she loves the season of birds singing. I think you might fit into that category, too!

Alycia Nichols said...

You are giving me the itch to do some Spring decorating around here, Babs!!! Sorry truth, though, is that we are in for yet another round of unseasonable below zero weather in the next few days that is to last into next week. AND snow & sleet on top of that!!! Oh, woe is me! Bring on Spring!!! Your fresh vignette looks fantastic and really makes a person feel warmth!

OK...so you live in a split level house. My parents...I guess just my Mom now...live in a split level, but their landing area isn't nearly as generous as yours. My Mom was scouting ideas for their landing and I was going to refer her to your blog since that is your catch phrase (Life In a Split Level House), but she couldn't even begin to fit all of this into her inky dinky space. Yours was built in the 80s, but theirs was built in the 50s...I guess therein lies the difference. She really is getting into the decorating stuff now, and I wanna keep her interested while the iron is hot! :-)

Beautiful, Babs!!!
