Happy Spaces 2

 As most of you know I LOVE nests and I am very fortunate to have a LOT of them. Big, little, real, man-made..I am fortunate indeed! Inevitably the nests start to break down. I was wondering what to do with some of the larger ones I have that were starting to resemble mounds of grass rather than nests....when it occurred to me to use them as planters!
Just as nature intended the nest blends right in and as it decomposes it will feed all around it.
Nest LOVE!

 I recreated my front porch display too. Probably one of the most important of my happy spaces as it's the first thing I see when I get home. I do actually remember to stop and enjoy these happy spaces. My display was in need of a change though so I pulled an old mower around to the front of the house and placed some things around it.
 I liked it...but I didn't LOVE it. Something was missing...

 I literally picked up a vase of flowers I had inside and walked out with them...AMAZING what a difference colour can make! Check out those red berries!

 Now I love it:)
May your nest be blessed as your visits and comments have blessed mine.

I love this idea! I have an old mower sitting in my garage that used to be my grandpa's. I think i will try something like this in the garden.
I am enjoying perusing your creative ideas.
