These are my little felt birds ... too adorable not to have a close up! I found them at Crate & Barrel and I used them as part of my table centerpiece during the holidays. The rustic pieces of wood I gathered from the backyard during the fall along with a big bag of twigs. I think my family thought I was nuts, but all you creative people out there understand I'm sure.

An update on the dining table makeover!
I had big plans to finish the whole thing by Boxing Day (in time for a huge family dinner) as you can read about here, but the legs never made it (sigh!).

The legs desperately need attention, so before my Valentine's Day guests arrive, I swear I will have them done ... I hope - and a picture to boot!
