Let the Flakes Fall Where They May

Today is my birthday and my husband outdid himself this year!!  He knows how much I love anything chippy with the paint flaking off and when he gave me this planter and plant stand I was blown away.  They look right at home on my back porch next to a chippy chair that belonged to my parents.

I filled the plant stand with magnolia leaves, pine cones, and moss covered sticks from the yard.   Still trying to decide what to put in the planter.

I gifted myself with this precious little winter bird and mossy nest that I found on sale at Trees N Trends.   The bird and nest was set in a bowl that was a TJ Maxx find this past summer and was surrounded by a miniature pearl garland to give the illusion of snow.
