One Here, One Still To Come ..

Hello my dear friends,

just recently I had shared with you that I was waiting for my new nests from Vicki and one of them has now arrived!

The mail lady stopped outside our house few days ago and I watched and waited to see where she would go and ... it was to my front door with a white box in hand.

Vicki mail ...

... so exciting!

I opened the box and pulled what was inside out.

A new bird decorated the package ...

... now my second one and just as lovely as the first.
Carefully I unwrapped the treasure that was hiding inside the tissue paper and there it was ...

... my "Woodland Bling" nest.

I took many photos so you can see hopefully every little bit of this stunning piece of art.
So many different bits and pieces of all sorts of yarn, ribbon, lace, treasures and so much more have been gathered and used to create this nest.

Just take a look at it  ... it is so beautiful!


Vicki had told me that this nest was amazing and she wasn't wrong! ... Don't you agree?!

 I am already so excited for my 'Vintage Spring' nest to arrive too.
 Some where on it there will be a few of my little 'Flutter~Bys' that I had made for Vicki to place on these nests ... I am so happy she asked me!

Thank you for stopping by today here at Todolwen. If you have a little spare time tomorrow do visit me again ~ I will be sharing my newest creation.

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind my dear friends.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. So happy for you - the nest is absolutely stunning! I'm curious as to how you display them. Or do you give them as gifts? ( I certainly would not!) Happy Spring

  2. It is realy great!

    Hugs Ines♥

  3. Lucky you!!! If I win the lottery one of the first things I plan to do is get my name on the waiting list for one of these - considering the most I have ever won is $2 methinks it will be a long time happening.

  4. Umm...ohhhh, awwww....egads I'm at a loss to describe how beautiful the nest is. Sure do wish you would do a long shot of it though, bits and pieces of up-close are good, and in my opinion, a long shot would also be nice (hint, hint, wink, wink).

    What a love piece, and wrapped up in such a loving way. Cherish it!

  5. I have two and just love them. Vicki is the supreme artisan. xo Jenny

  6. Breathtaking beauty....what a treasure to own...Enjoy... Hugs May x x

  7. How wonderful Karen! I have ordered a woodland nest for next year. Can hardly wait. Excited to see what you have made. Have a good day.

  8. This is just beautiful, what is Vickis site please so I can go and look .

  9. Oh my this is amazing. How lucky to be one of the few who got one of these beautiful nests.
    I'm looking forward to my Vintage Spring nest too. Even more so because there will be one of your creations included.

  10. I can see why you fell in love with this nest; it is absolutely beautiful! Vicki has a real talent for this and there are so many delightful surprises in this nest. And it's so you, Karen, with all the things you love.
    So much detail, and the colors are so vibrant. Can't wait to see the spring version with your flutterbys in them. Happy crafting, Karen, or should I say artisan.
