Front Door Bling!

A few months ago my sister sent me an email urging me to check out Country Sampler magazine next time I was out shopping. She said that there was something in there that she was sure that I would love and want to  make. Boy was she right! Isn't that Door Umbrella decoration sweet?! Love the color of that door too. I knew I had to make one, so the search was on for an umbrella, with a curved handle. Well wouldn't you just know that finding one of those when you need it was like trying to find a needle in a haystack? Probably because I didn't want to pay full price, so I spent alot of time looking at thrift stores. Couldn't find a single umbrella, so my sister found one for me!
This is my version of the Door Umbrella. 
I've got tons of silk flowers, so I gathered all of the Spring-y ones.
And I've got lots of birch branches, so that saved me alot of money too.
All I had to buy was the nest at Hobby Lobby, and I painted the eggs so that it would look like a robin's nest.
My sister also gave me this umbrella, which is just waiting to be stuffed with a bunch of flowers and hung on the back door!

I absolutely love this. Perfect for spring and with the little nest tucked in it is perfect. You should come over and share on the blog hop.

Carol, it looks so pretty and very springy......however, you might want to add some summery flowers as it's coming up fast.

Hugs,
