Spring-y Look

Hey guys! I was dusting today and decided to change some things up for a spring-y look. This is the wall in my main living room. Which I have yet to show you, but its a work in progress and I will show you as soon as I finish. I love my big clock we got it as a wedding gift.  I saw Liz's idea last year on these candlesticks with the nest and birds on top. So I decided to use her idea and do the same. I added some zebra ribbon to dress them up. 

*All photos enlarge when you click on them*


Here are a few close up of the sweet birdies.



I got these bunnies last year at Michael's. I had this jar in my guest bathroom and thought I would use it a different way. I just added some moss and put the bunny in there. 


I heart topiaries I have quite a few of them in my home.


I love clocks too.


Here is the full view of what I have on the wall.  


Here are some close ups of the pictures. I got them from Ross for 10 bucks each! Ah I love that store.



Well, Thats it for today guys. I have quite a few changes coming to this room so I will be sure to share them with you once I am finished. I will be sharing Jackson's room this weekend. Stay tuned.

I am joining Debbie's Newbie Party go check it out!!
