A little birdie told me...

The Spring crafting is still going strong at our house! You may remember that my accent color in the office is yellow and I have enjoyed finding small ways to add a punch of the cheery color. This week I decided to put some of my cloche collection to use and create a natural history display on my desk. It was a relatively cheap project, requiring only items I had around the house with the exception of some bright yellow wool.

During one of Wren's naps I stitched up a little birdie out of scrap fabric. It was a fun project, and easy to do while channel surfing.

In another cloche I simply placed starfish into little bottles to mimic the pricey ones I've admired for months at Anthro. I am considering adding some silver wax to look like the metal securing theirs, but haven't gotten to that project just yet.

I also want to put my silhouette to use to make some fun museum-like tags for our little display.

another pop of yellow appears in a sweet little pot Wren found for me while thrifting. It looks like a good spot to put paper clips and pins.

But my favorite new addition to the office (besides our old dining room rug) is this funky antique office chair. It is my mission to recover it in linen this weekend, and while I am not looking forward to touching the oh-so gross foam inside I can't wait to get it transformed.

Stay tuned later today for our big Silhouette winner!!
