Moving + Nesting

It’s been quite a while since I’ve logged on to this little blog, but my husband and I are finally feeling settled in our new place, so I have a bit of time.  :-)  Yep, we moved — very close to our old place but still a new home to decorate, unpack in, and enjoy.  It’s been quite the ride.  Along with that, school has been keeping me incredibly busy.  I’m looking forward to my Spring break in a couple of weeks — I’m hoping I can get some projects completed the week that I am off!  There hasn’t been a ton of time for decorating, except for on the weekends when I can usually get an hour or two of craftiness in — it keeps me sane.  ;-)

This is simple enough, right?  My mother-in-law decorates with eggs, moss, and nests underneath domes each spring and this is the first time that I have actually tried it myself.  Super easy — it literally took me less than five minutes to create this cuteness.  The dome is from HomeGoods (where else?) and the moss, nest, and egg is from Hobby Lobby.

I piled some of my favorite decorating books and placed my way-too-awesome nose bookend on its side on top.  Quatrefoil coasters are from Pier One ages ago, and the lucite tray is one of my favorite pieces of decor, from Crate and Barrel.

Just another view.  :-)

I used the rest of the eggs and moss that I bought from Hobby Lobby and gently placed them in my vintage Waterford crystal bowl.  The bowl is sitting on top of a cigar box that my husband really loves.

I’m going to be painting this piece of furniture that the eggs and other decor is resting upon.  Any color ideas for me?  :-)

Here’s where we’re at with our living room right now.  It’s sort of a hodge-podge but I do love how it is slowly coming together.

That hardware on the side table needs to change — I’m going to tackle that really quickly this weekend!  :-)  Just watch me!
