Beachy Bird Display

I'm not very good at this decorating thing, but I'm pretty excited with this new display that I put together.  The big vase is full of the sand dollars that we found on the beach in Washington on vacation, so it really is fun for our whole family to look at.  I don't really have a beach theme going, but figured that the summer would be a great time to have a few items here and there. I've notice that birds have been in a lot of decors on blogs, so have been on the look-out at rummage sales for them.  These were the first that I have found all spring and I got them for $.25 each!  One has a slight crack in it, but you would only notice if you looked hard enough.   To raise them a little to fit the size of the vase, i put one on a candle holder and the other on an upside down vase.

 Oh, to make the display more special to our family, the mat underneath was a gift from our Japanese foreign exchange student last year.  His mother quilted it for us.  Please let me know what you think!
