today I would like to share some of my older creations. I made these little nests long before I started Todolwen. I had found the instructions on Cathe's blog http://www.justsomethingimade.blogspot.com/ and loved the idea right away. The thought of using what ever you had on hand was just great. From wool to twine, wire to paper, feathers, string, and thread ~ anything was perfect.
I love old stemware and combined with the little nests it became exactly the look that I wanted ~ natural yet elegant and pretty!
Again any style or size of glass was just right. My favourite style is the older stemware that has been engraved, frosted or embellished.
There are no limits to what you could do with these really!
I really love the look of these nests. I find that the the more types of material you use to create them with, the better they look!
Isn't this just so adorable?
The smaller nest will hold one little egg ...
where the larger one is the ideal home for three eggs.
Even one of my little cupboard mice found a little place to call home in one of the nests ...
... and it seems to be quite happy there too!
There are really no limits to what can be created. For some creators less is more and for others the "full monty" is needed. It doesn't matter which way you like it as long as you have pleasure in creating and it makes your heart smile.
I hope you are all well.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
