Spring Longing

Not all decoration ideas that suddenly pop up in my mind do work out. This one did, I think. Some days ago, when I randomly looked at my vintage typewriter, I got the idea to put a nest with eggs in it and use it as the focal point for a spring vignette.

When I searched my stash for a spring themed page of sheet music, I found one called “Fr├╝hlingssehnsucht” which is German for spring longing.

The nest and eggs are creations from last year. You can find my descriptions how I made the eggs HERE and the nest HERE.

Spring Vignette with Typewriter - Vintage with Laces
My typewriter wasn’t the only piece that got repurposed for the vignette. Of course not :). I cut some plum tree branches and used an old milk can as a vase.

The lantern was a junk yard find from last year and I thought a nest would look good in there too.

What do you think about my repurposed spring vignette?

I’ll be sharing it at  these great parties:

Falling in Love with a Pallet

When dear hubby and I spotted an old weathered pallet with rounded corners on a company’s yard, we knew we had to have it. It was obvious that it was not industrially manufactured but individually made. The company let us take it because it was meant to be thrown away and we became owners of the most beautiful pallet ever. I know some of you understand my enthusiasm for some old and imperfect planks of wood :). Hubby took the pallet apart and made this fabulous shelf for me. It would be great for towels or other useful things but for now I use it for my Valentine’s decorations.
