Show Off and Inspire - Savvy Seasons By Liz

Time for Show Off and Inspire and this week I have the pleasure of getting to brag a little about Liz at Savvy Seasons by Liz.  If you don't follow her blog (you definitely should), then you have missed so much.  She has a fabulous home and decorates every nook and corner with the most wonderful vignettes and displays.  Her style is a little Tuscan and a little Shabby Chic and she combines the two together with such ingenius creativity.  I can't even begin to think up all the projects she does, but I sure love to copy her.  She is also such a charming person, and cute as a bug, plus she shares all of her wonderful knowledge with video tutorials (like she is doing here.)  Please welcome her and then go follow her, you really don't ever want to miss a post.

Hello friends! Today, I am guest posting for Marty. Thank you so much Marty for allowing me to share this post with your readers. :) So, who wants to see how to make a *Springtime Bird Arrangement* for your home? 

Spring is such a beautiful time of year. I always know spring is right around the corner when the birds are chirping and flying about like crazy. I was inspired to come up with a fun bird arrangement in honor of spring.
I grabbed my car keys and drove to Hobby Lobby on the H U N T for spring inspired items.
 I made two arrangements.
I placed one on a candle holder for height, the other arrangement I sat on a stack of books.
 I purchased 2 pots, 2 Deco Balls, a bag of Spanish Moss (green colored), 2 birds, a pack of faux bird eggs, and lastly, 2 floral picks. 
I tried to make the birds look like finials on top of the Deco Balls. The picture below was my inspiration.

A project always starts with an idea, right?
Operation: Fill Space
I moved the flat screen TV from our Entertainment Unit to another spot in the room, so I had this bare open space to work with.
This is how I filled it in....
If you would like to watch the tutorial on how I created this look, pull up a chair and grab a cup of coffee. :) I will take you to the store with me, back home to go over the items purchased and the cost of them, and then the step by step instructions. 

Thanks for stopping by, and thank you Marty for allowing me to share, this was so much fun! XOXO ~Liz

  13. You were highly recommended by the lovely lady at One more time. Looks like I lucked out as I got to "meet" another talented blogger, Liz. I don't have a blog but do many of the kinds of projects you gals do and enjoy reading all about what you do and how you do it. It's been wonderful since I discovered blogs about a year ago, didn't have any idea how many talented crafters/decorators there were out there. I've always been creative but now I'm always involved in some project or other. That is when I'm not spending hours reading blogs. Sure glad to find out about you and Liz. I've subscribed to your blog so will be looking forward to seeing what you do and reading your blog. Happy Days

  14. This is adorable Liz! I have spent a fair amount of $$$ at Hobby Lobby after watching Liz.

  15. Liz's blog is one of my favorites, Marty! How nice of you to feature her here. She is truly talented when it comes to decorating, and you can tell she has a good heart, too!


  16. Liz's blog is gone! Does anyone know if she has moved? I thoroughly enjoyed it!

  17. I am searching for Liz's blog also! I miss her

  18. Liz is not blogging anymore. :( I hope she reconsiders, especially come fall/Christmas, I have loved her blog and all of her decorating ideas.

  19. I have searched and searched for Liz......Truly miss my "Liz" Inspirations......maybe one day she will visit us again!!!
