I found this old bottle crate at a yard sale (where else?) I’m not big on getting ‘something for nothing’ just to say I made a deal. Yes, I occasionally dicker, but not to the point of insulting someone. I didn’t need this crate at all. I just picked it up to have a better look. But when the owner immediately said I could have it for a quarter, I decided well now I guess I do need this crate after all!
So up to the top of my cabinet it went. Sometimes the simplest little things can make a big difference in warming up a display.
The base of the nests are black and clear beaded napkin rings. The peace blocks were Christmas blocks with tea lights in the top.
Yes, this is a mismatched porcelain salt shaker. (You didn’t think I’d put birds in every nest, did you?!) My mom gave me this set way back when I had a S&P collection. I dropped one while I was dusting. It bounced a couple times in my hand before finally shattering on the counter leaving this one an orphan.
Every time I look at this decor I am reminded of Matthew 6:26 “Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not more valuable than they?” (Matthew 5-7, contextual reading)
