Spring Made Simple

So, I visited the Pottery Barn Outlet this weekend.  I hadn’t been there in ages, and oh. my. goodness.  I was like a kid in a candy store (except my 6 year-old was with me, and it didn’t have the same candy store effect on her.  It was more of the whiney-kid-in-a-furniture-store effect).

But, I did get a great idea for a fun Spring vignette:

That sneaky Pottery Barn and all of their beautifully staged rooms and inspiring vignettes.  Here is the Pottery Barn purchase that got it all going…

I already had the apothecary jar and moss on hand, making this a $10 project. 

Even the moss was on the cheap – 99 cents from Goodwill.

Simply add the moss and make your pretty little bird’s nest on top of it – does it get any easier than that?

Hello Spring – we welcome you!

I need to go back to Pottery Barn Outlet when I have no pint sized companions and a wallet full o’cash…

Exhibits A through F:

I rest my case.

    OOooooooh I want to go shopping with you there badly Jenny!! My local PB outlet is part of a Williams Sonoma kitchen store; no furniture, just linens and cookware, etc. I would love to check out a furniture store! I need a new couch, lighting, the works! Love your mossy terrarium….I need to steal that idea.

    Beautiful! There is just something about robin's egg blue . . . especially when it actually IS robin's eggs! Gotta love inexpensive decor that looks like a million bucks!

      Thanks for your kind comment Patricia – the Pottery Barn Outlet is in Jeffersonville, OH – might be worth the trip if you were looking for some big ticket items. 🙂

    the apothecary jar looks so sweet! We don't have a PB outlet….oh how I wish we did! Although, the credit card would likely suffer!

    Love your spring creation. That blue chair makes me want to head up there right now. But, I'll save it for you!

    Thanks for this great Easter decorating idea, Jenny! I was just getting ready to haul the apothocary jars back up to the attic (from a project months ago) and now I have a good excuse to keep them down at least another week and use them like you have for Easter decor. I saw your post over at "Dear Lillie" Easter party.

    Came over from Dear Lillie…. so happy I did. I have two large apothecary jars that I haven't added anything to yet for Easter and now I know what I want to do. Thanks so much for the idea. Happy Easter!
