A sneek peek of bird tablescape

Just a couple of quick pictures to let you know what I have been up to the past couple of days.  My finch cookies are baked and decorated. 

The eastern finch is the state bird of Iowa (native Iowan here!) and I love watching them at my bird feeder because I adore their bright yellow color. 

I also turned a sad situation into something fun. 

A weeping pussy willow that I planted last year didn't survive.  Last summers extreme heat and drought really took a toll.  As I watched my husband dig it out and prepare to throw it on the lawn waste pile, I had an idea.  All it took was a saw and a can of nickel colored paint from Walmart.  Add some bright callibrachoa, and here is what I got.

My birdies are going to take flight in this darling centerpiece, but stay tuned because there are going to be some surprises!
