Spring Tree in my Foyer

Here is a picture of my Foyer with my spring display. I made the Tulip Quilts at least 8 to 10 years ago. I love to make quilts! I have this tree up year round that I decorate for the different seasons and holidays. For the spring it is filled with miniature wooden bird houses, butterflies, small birds, and dogwood. Below is a close up of some of the bird houses I made and decorated.I make most of the ornaments for all the themes that I decorate for. This will be up until sometime in June when I do the 4th of July. I usually comb the After-Christmas-Sales to see if I can find anything that can be used at other times during the year. Last year I found some neat school buses for my Back-to-School display.

Well, I did my taxes today and am relieved to get it over with. Being sick has put me back in all the things I had to get done. Now I just have 3 more rooms to spring clean and then I am going on a craft making extravaganza!!!

I am going to try to keep posting. I am on a roll now and plan to keep up. By the way, I read an awesome book in less than a day. The title is Lovely Bones, by Ann Sebold. I read for about an hour last night and got so into it, I had to finish it today. I have never done that before. This not working stuff is great!

Spring has Sprung in Georgia

Here is a wreath I made for my front door today. I love the bright colors. It is so pretty, I decided not to hang it on the outside of the door. I hung it on the inside so I can see it whenever I go to the Foyer. lol

I purchased all my flowers at the Dollar Store here in town. I have been all over looking for flowers that I liked and could not find anything. I took a chance and went into the store on my Grocery Shopping day and found these. I am please with the results.

I have been spring cleaning my house. Three more rooms to go. I should be back soon with more cards.

See You Soon.
