How do you feel about leftovers?

Hello, friends!

If you have been with me any time at all, you know that I participated in the Scraps of Simplicity Spring Market about a week ago (see pictures of my booth here and here). It was exhausting fun! I only had two weeks to prepare, and they may have been the busiest two weeks OF MY LIFE!

In order to make it all look good, I (with help from wonderful friends) spent some time making little frou-frou items to decorate with.

There were yarn-wrapped carrots, (ala Homework)


Vintage Sheet Music Rosettes
(these are cute in a glass jar, or strung together in a garland)


And lots of scrappy birds (ala Living Life Creatively)






Plus there were a few Pottery Barn-esque book bundles scattered about.
(They look really cute with a bird...or two...or three...on them!)


I ended up bringing home some of my little accoutrements,
but they are none the worse for the trip!

So back to the original question...
How do you feel about leftovers??

If you like 'em...my kind, at least...


...and that would include:

Book bundle
Yarn-wrapped carrots
Bundle of vintage sheet-music rosettes
Five scrappy birds

...leave a comment and let me know! Tell me which item you like best, or which is your favorite bird. Or tell me what you're having for dinner that night; I'm always looking for ideas!
Just chime in on some topic or another. :-)

I will choose a random winner on Monday, May 2.

Usually leftovers find their way into my garbage after sitting in my refrigerator for 3-5 days going unnoticed and unloved. However, these leftovers you speak of, would be cherished and prominently displayed. I would love to learn how to make the little birdies. So cute!

I love the yarn carrots! I would put them in my kitchen counter basket and then DH and DD might stop putting the junk mail in it...LOL! Thanks for sharing!

The birds are adorable! I always feel a little sad when putting away the decorations from holidays -- but those birds could certainly grace any area all summer!

The scrappy birds are so cute!!! Tonight was date night so lucky me...didn't have to cook! Longhorn Steakhouse did the cooking. However, last night we had chicken with brown rice and spinach.

The birds are adorable! And I like the books too, I wrapped some old books of ours in scrapbook paper and used them to decorate my mantle and add some height. :D

Leftovers are growing on me (food-wise that is). As for your little leftovers... Adorable! Would love any of them, I may be a bit partial to those precious little birdies! And for dinner tonight, well leftover Taco Soup will fill our tummies.

I love the birdies! We are not pregnant yet but have decided to do a "love birds" theme for our nursery!

Korrie, You are amazing! I love these little scrapy birds and your vanity bench is adorable. I think the fabric just makes it. :)
