~Decorating~Decided to put a *new* (yard sale) shelf above the living room door. Chris did the work part, and I did the fun part ~ decorating it!! I was running around the house, looking for things that would work.....





A little stone birdie for which I made a *nest* out of moss....




A tiny Victorian framed print, just the right size... I keep looking at it ~ do you do that when you add a new vignette, or rearrange things? It's like enjoying a just-arrived decorating magazine, except in person. Decorating is too fun!!
