Spring Decor~Chippy Terracotta Birds

This time, last year, the kids were running through the sprinkler.  This year, they are sledding.  We are so ready for warm weather and sunshine.  

At least I can create the feeling of spring inside with a little spring decor.

Last week I shared our spring tablescape along with a super easy, tulip and pussy willow centerpiece tutorial, click here if you missed it.  Other than fresh tulips and pussy willow, when I think spring, I think of birds.  

Until our real birds return from the south, I can enjoy these little guys.  When I came across these sweet chippy terracotta birds,  I started imagining all the places I could put them.  

I moved their cuteness all around the house, but so far this is my favorite spot.  Lined up along the mantle they sort of remind me of "birds on a wire".  In any location, they remind me of the promise of spring.  

If you would like a set, they are made of terracotta with a distressed, crackled ivory finish.  Sold in sets of four (5"w x 3"h x 4"d).  

This week, I'll be busy working on a few brand new DIY project tutorials.  While I am hammering away, I'll be sharing recent online design projects including the details on the twins project from last Friday, click here if you missed the story. 

Happy spring!

  1. I have a long chippy terra cotta base w/5 chippy terra cotta birds perched on the side that is one of my favorites so I am loving your little birdies. Just last night my son was over and asked me "are they supposed to look like this??" I said yes and he said, while looking at them, more than once before he left "I don't get it" lol

  2. So cute. I have some terra cotta birds and I love them. They are heavy and add a touch of whimsy. Susan @ throughmyporchwindow.blogspot.com
