Wild About Mother Nature

I woke up this morning with a terrible migraine after being up all night with my poor sick baby.  But I stumbled upon this blog party and decided to man-up link up instead of crawling back into bed.

Barb over at Grits And Glamour is hosting the first ever Wild About Mother Nature linky party.  I'm a fan of Barb as well as Mother Nature, so why not.

The gist of the party is pretty self-explanatory.  Just snap a pic of anything in your home that has texture or is otherwise nature-inspired.

I just put together this bowl-o-balls in my Living Room and stuck it in a tray on the coffee table along  with a shell and a wicker votive holder.

In the kitchen I replaced the Christmas balls with moss balls and other natury looking thingamabobs.

I think those are fruit wrapped in twine.  Not sure, but I like how it all looks in front of the wicker charger.

Larger moss balls fill matching containers at each end.  I'm a little OCD when it comes to balance.

A grapevine wreath on the top shelf of my kitchen hutch with a burlap bow.

And while typing I just glanced over my shoulder and spotted this in my curio cabinet.

The pic is a little grainy because it's behind glass.  I found this moss-covered container at a yardsale and filled it with more natury thingamagigs and plopped it on top of some antique books.

Thanks to Barb for hosting this fun par-tay, and while you're over there be sure to check out the progress on her home transformation.  Barb's kitchen is the bomb-diggity and was featured in a magazine not long ago.  She's got serious decorating skillllzzzz!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulicious day.

Hey Kim, thanks for stopping by to comment...sometimes I think no one actually reads my blog. I am your newest follower. I love your hutch in all your photos. I hope your migrane goes away. I get those too! I drink lot's and lot's of iced coffee to help. LOL! My son is 2.5 and he is so exhausting most days. I wish I had his energy! Thanks for your sweet comment.

Hope you're feeling better! I love your moss balls. My boys don't seem to understand the concept of "decorative" balls... they end up getting tossed or rolled around until they're too shabby to display :)

I like your touches of nature vignettes. I also like symmetry.
Hope you are having a good week.

I really like all your "natury thingamabobs!" That sounds like a fun party, but I haven't been able to link to any of the parties that I have listed on my current post -- Mr. Linky is not cooperating, & I have no clue why. Sorry you aren't feeling too well. Migraines are nasty.

Thank you for your sweet comments about Avery & about my dining room. Most appreciative, sweet lady!

Yayyy - so happy you did the "man-up" thing and joined in. You got some happening Mother Nature things going on. :) Sorry your baby is sick. I am home with my 2 yr old Grandlove today too. He got that norovirus and he just can't shake it. I get migraines something aweful too when I don't get any sleep. Hope you feel better. Thanks agin for joining up, but I gotta tell you my "magazine kitchen" looks like something out of "National Geo" it looks so bad right now. haha
Blessings, Barb

Your moss balls look great. I really should make some. They're so pretty and I have moss. I know what you mean about OCD on things being balances. I have to fight the urge to balance everything. I'm getting better at asymmetrical arrangements. I like the moss covered urn on the books too.

I hate to hear you have those awful headaches....I had them for years. You have a lot of nice nature pieces to share...I like them all.

Love your natural items. I wish I had more of these type items in my house, but I don't think that is the direction I am going. It kills me bc I love this style too!

HI Kim - Oh boy, now I have to take a pic or two in my house. Good reminder - I have to do a blogpost anyway. I love yours!

I wanted to remind you that I am doing a giveaway - a Handpainted Paint Color Fan Deck...with gorgeous colors. Great for choosing colors becuase you get to see actual painted swatches (instead of pictures of colors).

You are already a follower of my blog - but you have to leave a comment and you can get extra entries if you do a few other things.

So...please enter!!
