I found a really different shelf.

Only a blogger can make a shelf something interesting. Huh?

I think someone made it.  It is old and made of wood.

The thing that got me was the shape. It looked like a little house.

and it had some cubbies........we all love cubbies.

When I bought it, I knew it would make a great display shelf.

I wanted to play off the shape and turn it into a cubby for my birds.

A little bit of paint did the trick.

I added cute little numbers to it. My numbers gave it some whimsy.

I used numbers that are used for clocks. I bought them from Hobby Lobby to keep for fun projects like this one.  It is like giving my birdies an address.

and I am yearning for spring

so this little project made me feel like it is just around the corner

I love my nest too......

more hope for spring

And as I sit in my sun room with the sun streaming in through the window, I feel it is close

So this might be a small project redo but I love the way it came out and how it represents something new and fresh

Now my birds sit proud as they await the crackling of the egg.......

                                                      Isn't that what spring is about?

                                                         Aren't you ready for it?

Oh cute!! I love all of the little birds. I'm so ready for spring, too. We've had cloudy, rainy weather (which I love) but I'm ready for some pretty sunshine.

Oh, I think we are all yearning for spring. Your little cubby cabinet is adorable and it does harken the spring gods to visit a little earlier. Love the birds and the nest. They have a home to be proud of.

Just adorable. I love the display and the white against the pop of color!:)

Here in Cape Town, we are enjoying the last couple of summer days, but autumn (you call it fall) is just around the corner!
