Is it spring yet?!?!?

Been getting LOTS of spring things ready to go to Stars!

2.16.12 stars projects 001Batch of vintage apothecary jars.  You can tell the ones that are older because the inside rim of the topper is frosted glass.

2.16.12 stars projects 008This was one of the birds with the wire feet; except the feet broke off on this one.  So I put it in a nest!

2.16.12 stars projects 009BIG vintage tin cup filled with paper shred and eggs.  (those are ‘real’ sized eggs).

2.16.12 stars projects 010I didn’t have any ‘grass’ to use so I just used my custom paper shred mix.  Since the cup is turquoise, it worked just fine.

2.16.12 stars projects 011Nest with eggs in apothecary jar.

2.16.12 stars projects 014The lid to this crock broke, so I couldn’t sell it as a crock anymore.  Just filled it with moss and added a bird and some tiny eggs. (made these eggs using Fimo clay)

2.16.12 stars projects 017Little tin watering can had a weird logo on the front, so I covered that with some tea stained paper.

2.16.12 stars projects 022Vintage cherub wall sconce nest.

2.12.13 etsy projects 034I had lots of eggs left over from last year to use up, so I didn’t need to buy any this year!  Pulled out my stash of jars that I collect year round and a bag of moss and started filling!

2.12.13 etsy projects 036Covered pedestal bowl was just the right size for one of the nests.  Just added a bit of moss in the bottom.

2.12.13 etsy projects 038Little bell jars with moss and one egg.

2.12.13 etsy projects 039

2.12.13 etsy projects 040Bigger jars filled with nests.

2.12.13 etsy projects 041

2.12.13 etsy projects 042Short squatty jars were too small for the nests, but had room for three eggs and moss.

2.12.13 etsy projects 043

2.12.13 etsy projects 044Slightly bigger jars, but still to narrow for the nests; so again, just moss and eggs.

2.12.13 etsy projects 046

2.12.13 etsy projects 047I had more of the cream colored eggs left, so I filled this coordinated set with them.

2.5.12 signs finds etsy 032Vintage repro bird post cards that I framed.  This set went to my etsy shop and has already sold.

2.5.12 signs finds etsy 039The rest of them, in these weathered wood frames will be going to Stars.

  1. Gosh, you are so clever! These are darling. I bet they sell like hotcakes!

  2. Can you do a tutorial on how you make your custom paper shred? I own a shop and would love to bag some up and sell it or use it as gift bag shred.

    Thanks! Gloria
