NEW YEAR VIGNETTE

A new year, a new vignette.
I have linked up to Grits and Glamour for a "WILD ABOUT MOTHER NATURE PARTY"
If you know me here at Nook and Cranny you know I am a lover of nature, birds, twigs, burlap (oh love the burlap) and more.
This is a new centerpiece on the dining room table.
The aloe plant was given to me last fall at a rummage sale, I planted it in the vintage coffee can. Do you notice the old door knob and the little brown bottle tucked in the dirt?
The bird nest was given to me by my dear friend Stacey, she knows I love to collect these little items from nature. I did a post awhile back on a gift of nests, you can see that here.
This bird was given to me by my Figgy for my birthday.
This is the vignette. I have used my antique sewing machine boxes, love these!
The clock I purchased at my local auction house for $5.00
The little white vintage bird cage was also a gift from my Figgy.
The bird cage has a handmade nest with a glass bird, eggs, a post card and several bead pins made for me by a blog friend.
Thanks for stopping by.

What an absolutely beautiful vignette. Honestly it looks like something from a post card. I love the old cann, and I have a few old medicine bottles too. This is a wonderful collection. Thank you so much for participating in the first Wild About Mother Nature. I think I will be making this a monthly event. :)

We always had an aloe plant in the house while we were growing up..my mom used if for all kinds of things! I love the way you placed it in the vintage coffee can!
So adorable and love the nest!
