Springtime Side Table Vignette

Spring weather has made its appearance here in North Texas. Between the sunshine (and thunderstorms) and Easter coming in just over a month, I thought it was time to put together a little Springtime Side Table Vignette.
Right before Christmas, we did a little rearranging of furniture. I ended up with this little side table in the corner, mostly so I had a place to put my big iron lamp. For the change of seasons, I wanted to bring in some lighter elements to go with the lamp.
Years ago, my mother passed this basket on to me from her stash of decor. It generally makes an appearance during spring, as it reminds me of a bird's nest. This year, I filled it with burlap, raffia and some decorated eggs. I'll be sharing how I made them real soon.
Some clippings from a plant are getting their roots started in this little ironstone sugar bowl and add a live element to the vignette. I even brought out the Modern Botanical Bloom Print that I made a while back. All together, the items call to mind new beginnings and a fresh outlook. Wherever you are on this big spinning globe, may you be filled with the hope of spring and newness of life that comes this time of year.

  2. Looks so pretty, Nici. The basket does look like a nest. I really like the eggs you did, and I think I probably know how you did it, but will anxiously wait to see! I'm lovin' pops of turquoise around our home right now, so the little print and those beautiful eggs are making me smile!

  3. It looks great Nici! Your basket is so unique, and it does remind me of a bird's next. How appropriate that you filled it with eggs. I'm off to check out your botanical bloom print. :)

  10. Oh I really like that! It's hard to decorate tiny little tables like that, I think. You've definitely succeeded. Love the eggs in the basket.
