Butterflies, Nests, and Birdhouses

The last few days I've been adding a touch of spring indoors.  It's a reminder that spring weather is around the corner, even though we had flurries yesterdayFlurries!

I filled the milk jug with twigs and added in some little butterflies and nests,




randomly added a few butterflies to lamps and picture frames,



and I made a pedestal birdhouseI've seen a lot of these floating around blogland lately, and  they are absolutely adorable.  I HAD to make one. 



I purchased an unfinished birdhouse and candle stick from Hobby Lobby, and followed the tutorial over at The Speckled Dog.


After hot gluing the birdhouse to the candlestick I stained the wood.



Then I painted it white and distressed with sandpaper. 


Enjoy!

Love the twigs, nest, and butterflys! The tiny birdhouse on a candlestick is a great idea, too.

I've been seeing those bird houses around too, so perfect for spring. Everything is so sweet.
