Centered for Springtime

Dressing the tables in my home for the seasons,
 is always so much fun.
Creating something unique~
filling a small space to
enjoy while having meals,
or taking a seat to visit  with a friend over a cup of tea.
Recently I purchased a wonderful real nest with faux bird's eggs
from my dear friend
Donna created real lifelike bird's eggs to complete the nest
for her shop on etsy.
They are so real looking in color and speckles.
When I saw the nest in her shoppe,
I knew it would be the perfect addition to a centerpiece
for my dining room.
Look how beautiful it is and the eggs so real looking.
Adding to a vintage silver tray,
I added a gorgeous white distressed ceramic bird.

Hydrangeas dried from my garden last year,
along with a couple old spindles with lots of distress.

Topping the tray filled with treasures
I've added  a gorgeous large hand crocheted
table topper.
So pretty centered on the table for springtime.

Loosely built, we think it may be a Cardinal's nest.
We have one similar nested in my rose arch this season.
Maybe I will be able to collect that one later in the summer,
once the family has moved on and not in use any longer.
Thank you Donna for creating such a pretty accent
perfect for my centerpiece idea.
Wishing you all a great weekend.
I'm off to sit with a cup of tea and enjoy my centered
