Topiary project and Thrift goodies

Can you guess what this is....? It is the beginning of an egg topiary for a Tablescape Thursday! Hahha...I am planning ahead! Glue guns....the real power tool!



I started picking up these little outdoor lanterns at thrift stores, I am going to spray paint them and then place them outside when we start spending more time on the porch!


Sweet little bird nests, I think they are supposed to hold little candles...but I think they are begging for miniature birds, nests, and eggs!
I love a good white vase and the I went nuts when I found these red checked napkins and tablecloths. YIPPEEEE AND A HAPPY DANCE! I THINK MY BLOOD IS PROBABLY RED CHECKED IN REALITY! Buwahhhhaaaahahaha! I love red checks especially in the summer time.

The egg topiary's look fabulous from what I can see. I love the white vases and the red checked tableclothes, they do look like summer outdoors. Those are also some really cute lanterns, they will be great outside. Thanks for sharing and I can't wait to see the tablescape. Hugs, Marty

The egg topiaries are looking good! I love checked stuffed - great find! I've found lots of lanterns at Goodwill in the past few months and have spray painted most of them white for the summer. I too think it'll be nice to have a bunch of candle lit lanterns when we sit outside at night!
