Something new! Words like ” tweet” and ” retweet” and twitter have been flying around just under my radar like birdies for a while now. I began to think thoughts like:
” If I had twitter I would tweet ________________”.
” If I had twitter I would hashtag this phrase ________________.”
“If I had twitter it would be be easier to get an answer to questions such as _______________.”
This is the year to put woulda, coulda and shoulda in their respective place and JUST DO IT. So I did.
I am now a twitterer! You wanna tweet together? Follow me HERE. It’s hard to not join a social network with a birdie symbol! #ILOVEBIRDIES!
Seeing that spring is making it’s grand entrance, not only did I join a social networking site with a birdie symbol I gave my front porch a makeover, beginning with a front door wreath showcasing a birdie family.
Humble beginnings. A plain styrofoam wreath:
The idea started when I saw a yarn wreath on The lettered cottage, and ended after my patio was covered with yarn, crackle glaze, paint, saws, wood, sticks and moss from the yard! I have to give credit to my husband for cutting and drawing the birdies. The combo of the yellow birdies and the wreath really make my heart sing every time I pull in the driveway!
Here is a little more spring for ya!
Thanks to target dollar store for the yellow buckets and yard sales for the cracking peeling yellow table. Sidenote: The naturally cracked table was inspiration for the crackled birds on the wreath.
I decided to give these stone urns a makeover. Black spray paint and new flowers did the trick.
I found myself sitting on the porch a lot yesterday. Adding inspirational items to my daily surroundings definitely sparked the expectancy of springtime. As I type this post my thoughts drift to the weekend and the good friend-time that was sprinkled throughout. I was able to catch up with a few friends, I heard about upcoming changes, babies, moves, transitions and I was reminded about the newness this season often brings. For me, I am continuing to strive for a life of thankfulness. It is through thankfulness that my hear will be restored and made clean. It is through thankulness I learn to live in the moment taking each day as an opportunity to see the Lord glorified in me.
