  1. I am crazy for bird decor so I love your take on this month’s challenge. That sweet framed card got me right away. Love the faux candles too!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Amber! Yes, those faux candles are my new favorite thing:)

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I just can’t get enough green this time of year! Thanks, Tuula:)

  2. Lora, your bird themed tiered tray is the perfect way to welcome spring! I love all of the details and your diy tray is one of my favorite things you’ve made. So cozy and pretty!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m flashing back to when I made that for one of your blog hops, Angie! I’ve used them so much, indoors and out:)

  3. Love the idea of adding bird prints and bird books etc.! Great inspo as usual!!

      Glad you got inspired, Stef!

    Where did you get the hummingbird paper plate? I love it!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      It’s actually a vintage tin, Shawn. Wish there were paper plates like it;)

  5. I just love your take on the inspiration pic Lora. Every detail is perfection. Using a bird theme couldn’t have been better for spring. Bravo to your creativity.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Kim:) I’m just starting to bring out the bunnies; birds usually come first at my house;)

  6. What a beautiful interpretation, Lora!!! So pretty with all your birds, the greenery and way-cool tiered tray you made! I love birds and I do have a number of ceramic, wooden and mushroom birds in my stash. I have a couple of blue bird s/p shakers, too. Lots of ideas here to recreate from your photographs, thank you!!

    Happy spring and I hope your brown yard greens up quickly,
    Many hugs,
    Barb 🙂

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Barb. Got snow today, so happy to see plenty of green inside!

  7. So pretty. I love bird oriented vignettes, too! I have a collection of ceramic birds–currently crowded on several shelves instead of being put into vignettes. Shame on me!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Let them take flight in your home, Kathy!

  8. Julie Briones says:

      Thank you, Julie:)

    Your little bird dishes in the tiered tray are so cute, love the greenery you used too. A very unusual tiered tray, that I love.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I have used these fun DIY tiered trays so many times; love the green metal edging.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Laura!

  10. You are so smart to pick a theme and run with it Lora! I can’t imagine a better tiered tray for creating a centerpiece. There are so many little details to admire I’m going to go back for another look and start pinning!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m a theme girl to the core, Michelle; it’s how my brain thinks:)

    Can you give the author of the quote?

    ” Friendship like the flight of birds
    Can’t be put in written words.
    Never yet has poet penned
    All it means to have a friend.”

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Under the quote it says “From the writings of Edgar A. Guest”. It looks like it’s an old card someone framed. Hope that helps!

  12. It’s beautiful, Lora!! I can really tell that you let your creativity flow with this styled piece! The bird theme is so cute. I love all the layers and textures. Beautiful job!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Rachel! The tiered tray has plenty of space, so I fun arranging:)

  13. I can tell you had some fun with this PC. I love every single detail! The rich color, the bird theme, the mossy things and that tiered tray… Gaaahhhh – so fabulous! Thank you for joining in. Love your style friend. pinned

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      It was a fun one, Cindy! But they all are:)

  14. Debbie Glovacki says:

    Where did the print: Friendship like the flight of birds… come from? Very cute and would to have to decorate with. Thanks

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I picked it up a long time ago, Debbie. It looks as though someone cut apart an old card, glued it to a piece of paper and framed it.

  15. Super cute! I hope that you will share it on The Fabulous Friday Link Party. You can find the link on my home page. Hugs to you, my friend.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I will, Renae!

  16. I love your tiered tray. It’s so unique! All of the bird elements are perfect, too!

      Thanks, Niky!

  17. Lora, what an original interpretation of the spring centerpiece. That tiered tray is amazing. Using birds as a theme is perfect for spring. Your vignette has such a natural spring feel to it. I know you’ll enjoy it.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      So fun to see everyone’s interpretations!

  18. HI Lora I love the tray and the shade of green. It is perfect for spring!
    Great job! laura in Colorado

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Hopefully almost done with the white around here; trying to keep it green!

  19. Lora,
    I couldn’t wait to see what you shared. You are so creative and I loved the rustic feel of your centerpiece. The cute rustic vase for your candle really caught my eye. So fun doing these together.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, I made those rustic vases years ago; they’re really fun for Spring branches and Fall grasses.
