What a gorgeous, warm, sunny day here today. Finally!!! I've been putzing around in and outside the house today. I even went outside for my jog. It was nice feeling the warm sun on my face.

I just had to share this fantastic candle idea, which is totally credited to
Once again, the beauty of sharing bloggers comes through! I totally "craft-lifted" this idea from Kathy. Ingenious! I've had these DT (dollar tree) prayer candles sitting on the counter in my craft room for weeks now, trying to think of something different to do with them to mimic this season of
Spring, Renewal, Rebirth, Nesting . . .

I've had them wrapped with spooky words for Halloween, pretty s'book papers for Christmas, lovely shimmery ribbons echoing the frostiness of winter. But I was really stumped on how I could transfer them into something new . . . Springy . . . different.

Well, on my daily visit to Kathy's blog, she showed me what to do. YAY!!! Now I'm sharing how mine turned out. I love 'em!
Thanks so much, Kathy.
And, because it was so beautiful out, I snapped the pics outside on the deck in the morning sun.

While I was on a roll with snapping pictures, I thought I'd share some of the other vintage bird images I've used around the house.

These frames once held magnolia prints I purchased from Home Interior forever ago. I swapped them out for vintage bird prints cut from a Cavallini & Co. desk calendar and mounted them on s'book paper.

This "bingo" card collage was created with another bird from the same desk calendar, and a Jenni Bowlin Bingo Card.

Lastly, I found a new resting . . . er nesting . . . place for my sweet little birdie salt and pepper shakers.

Hope the sun is shining warmly where you are today!
