An Old Creation With A Wintry Twist

Hello my dear friends,

I am slowly starting to feel a bit better. My cold/flu isn't gone just yet but it's not too bad anymore and I am so happy because I just hate feeling unwell, but then who doesn't? Thank you all for your well wishes, they really helped me feel better!

These past few days I have been crafting a little and I would like to share my 'newest' creation with you today. It is actually one of my older creations with a wintry twist ~ my little felted nests!

I really love my little nests ~ which is a free tutorial for all you lovely bloggers ~ so I decided to make a few new ones but gave them a wintry glisten for the season. I am really pleased with the way they have turned out especially because it gave me a chance to use my newest yarn/wool I purchased from Martha Stewart amongst a lot of other very beautiful yarns that I had bought in Europe years ago but never used.

So, why not scroll down and take a look and I hope you like what you see!

I love the different textures of the beautiful yarns and the effect they give!

And these are my wintry little nests ...

They are all a little bit different from each other.

To paint the eggs I used Martha's newest paints with a pearl effect ...

and a tiny touch of sparkly glitter.

I love the look of these nests, it's almost like they are built from frost and ice!

Why not try and make one of these yourself? They would be a beautiful decoration for your Christmas tree, or Christmas display and they are great little gifts!

Last but not least ...

this was my backyard on Thursday ~ very green and warm.
We almost had a record temperature for December here!

And this is my backyard this morning ...

hopefully this won't be the last of the white beautiful flakes!

I hope you are all well, looking after yourselves and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.


  1. Oh the nests are so beautiful!! I would love to learn how to make them!!! Did I hear Tutorial!?

    We still have 4 inches from a snow fall about 10 days ago- so cold lately it's just not melting off. It is nice for the Christmas season though!

    bee blessed

  2. Adore the nest...may take you up on trying to make some of those little cuties for my gal pals!

  3. The winter nest is so beautiful. Today I began searching for what to use to make a little one, and your idea of the silver is fabulous!

  4. Your nests are so cute... i love them with the silver yarn. The newspaper snowflakes are beautiful too. I'm from Minnesota and we are missing snow here too!
