I love imperfections and this broken little kettle became a nest of sorts.
The mantel was themed with the great outdoors in mind. Outdoor garden elements chime in creating a fun casual look.
The window is woodsy toned on the other side. How fun is it to have reversable apparatus?
This tall green guy kept bending over, so a little twirly twine took care of that, with the bonus added fun detail.
Garden tools join in on the fun!
Quality faux plants will have your guests guessing. They really do look real and were worth the hefty price I paid once upon a time.
Hello there, spring! 
It may not be acting lik spring outside yet, but I can pretend... right alongside my pretend plants. :)

I love spring! But it's taking it's dear sweet time arriving on my Wet Coast doorstep. So I went about creating my own spring... with a twist.

Plants tend to die in my house yet I love the look, so I came up with a faux fix.

Go ahead and snow, weather! I'm sprung out! And my plants aren't gonna die this round either. :)

I can't believe your pretend plants are pretend plants...they look REAL!

Happy spring and thanks for the inspiring photos.
