We had torrential downpours, made all the more difficult because we have had a relatively dry winter, so this was the first "real" rain of the year. We spent many days inside, including a three day weekend where we had a spray paint party in the garage. Once it was over, my husband and I decided to head out to Ikea as a celebration of my birthday, and the fact that we could now carry things outside to our car without getting soaked, like this blogger did!
We can back with this mess, which we stored in the library. I'm in the process of styling the shelves and bringing more color in.
We have just started to sort it all out, but one of the first things we did was untie all the branches. And when I untied them I was left with a pile of little strings, which looked just like a bird's nest.
He had to go up onto our spring craft mantle right away.
The branches went into this giant vase in our entry. We needed some height in there.
I'm also guest posting today at Stardust- Decor and Style, so come visit me!
