a Touch of Spring

If you're aching for spring to arrive,
try this simple and inexpensive decor idea with an everyday item:
hang a coffee or tea cup from a ribbon tied to its handle,
and tuck a tiny nest inside!

I make my own simple little NeSts from dried daylily and daffodil foliage...
you can too, using my tutorial here !
 'faux' nests in various sizes are always available at craft stores,
and of course you can use a tiny real birds' nest, if you have one.

 You can use other 'handled' items in a similar fashion... 
like this vintage ironstone chamber pot!

I have a precious bone china cup, saucer, and dessert plate with a golden daffodil pattern,
and I love to display it differently every Spring.

This year, I tipped the cup on its side, and tucked a little grass nest inside,
and added dried blossoms from last year's white narcissus flowers.
A lacy white cupcake wrapper adds more feminine detail to the vignette...
Just the tiniest touch of Spring does the trick!
