SPRING! ugly BEFORE and a primtastic AFTER

Some Spring fun has been popping up in our house and only a hand ful of winter decor remains! This momma is busy with a very active 2 yr old and a" rolling" all over the floor 4 months old... he gets so upset when he rolls onto his tummy and then mom has to come roll him back over.. he will figure it out one of these days! :)

This little feller I stitched up ... no pattern... Im just THAT good ! lol..... I think I just got lucky :) Found the rusty safety pin in a stash and thought it was perfect to stick a wing on! :) The little prim box he sits in  was a GW redo project that was a 50 cent ugly wall box.

My basket O' Spring

My bowl ( redo bowl.... had ugly fruit painted on the inside) and a blackend lamb I picked up at a antique mall a couple years ago that I just love! He smells like strong cinnamon... mmm. ( sorry about the flash on this pic)

Another prim birdie I made perched in a antique match holder by my kitchen sink to remind me of spring!
Whats this ugly thing? A vintage "firkin" ice bucket I got for a BUCK at GW.... and turned into the beauty below!!! WHAT a fun redo.... I love the results :) I had to pry a plastic liner out of it... but it was totally worth the struggle :)



Have you got your spring stuff out yet?!??!

Hi Elisha! I see that you are a new follower to my blog so thought I would come over here and meet you. =]

Oh goodness, my youngest of three kids is now 6 1/2, I just can't imagine going back to those baby/toddler days. Enjoy those adorable boys, they will grow up fast on you!

I adore the bird you made, I can't believe you didn't even use a pattern... wow, you are good!!

You have some beautiful touches of spring. I pulled my spring/Easter totes out of the attic yesterday but they are still sitting because I need to dust before I can decorate, BLAH! Seeing your pretty flowers and nice touches of spring make me want to hop on it though. =] The firkin redo is amazing! Great job on it, love the new color and the flowers that are in it.

Looking forward to following your blog. Have a fantastic weekend~
