I love LOVE these bird's nests which have been planted with Succulent plants.  No instructions, but pretty easy to do I would think.  From Chick Weed.

I think these little shadow boxes are so adorable.  Found on Paper Mache UK.   I love paper mache. I once made a humpty dumpty out of paper mache and painted it in Americana Colours.  That was ages ago.  I wonder what ever happened to him.   Expect he got thrown away by my ex.

Now, why am I not the type of person who thinks of things like this?  What a fab idea and so simple too.   From  Croissant and Lavendar.

Look at this beautiful clothesline!  I love it!  From Vita Dromar & Busiga Barn.  What a delightful page.  It's in Swedish or some such.

I love the idea of using colour like this and dressing up the wall on the way upstairs in such a way.  Maybe not these colours, but certainly loving this idea of wall art display.   From  Fabulous Home Blog.

Saint Patricks Day Printables.   It's not long now before we celebrate the wearing of the green!  From The 36th Avenue.

And that's it for this week.  I hope you found something usuable amongst all the rubble!  I know I sure did.

And here is my finished Dorothy and her little dog Toto.  I quite like how she turned out.   Do you think I should sparkle her shoes or leave them as they are?

A thought to carry with you through today  . . .
