My Nest Has Arrived !

Hello my dear friends,

A few days before Easter I found a box on my doorstep and as soon as I saw that the sender's name was Vicki, I almost jumped for joy because I knew my nest was here!

I was so excited that I almost forgot to take photos! (Thanks Ashleigh for reminding me!)

I opened the box and ...

... slowly started looking at what was hiding under all the white tissue paper that had little nests stamped onto it and this is what I found apart from a lovely green bird tag ...

... my most amazing beautiful nest!

I carefully took it out of the box and followed Vicki's instructions and there is was ...

... in all it's beauty!
So many different fibres and colors ...

... where ever you look and ...

... I was wondering which one of them might have belonged to Vicki's Mama and in the future not only will I be thinking of Vicki when I look at my nest but also her Mama too.
And then two tiny eggs made of ceramic ~ perfect for this nest ...
... almost hiding away in the most softest wool ever with some feathers to keep them safe.

This is just beautiful!
Even Tugs had to take a closer look at it ~ I think he likes it!
The time I waited for this creation that my sweet friend Vicki made was more than worth it and I am beyond happy that it is now mine. I can't wait to see the next creation she will come up with. All I have to do now is find that special place for my nest in my home.
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
Karen B.

  5. Oh Karen-- you are so sweet to share your nest with your friends-- and it was MY pleasure to create this nest for you my friend. I love little Tugs-- he is just perfect for your new nest. Just so you know-- every single piece of lace in this nest came from my Mom's vintage collection-- the yarns are my own passion.
