The 'Other Half' Creation ..

Hello my dear friends,

remember last year I made a creation using a leftover half of an tin egg. I actually named it 'The Other Half''.

And this is my other half creation ...

It is a sweet little nest with tatty lace, dried grasses, a few soft feathers, little wooden eggs and vintage velvet violets.

 I looked at it again a few days ago and I thought that it could maybe look even better if I added a little stand to it ~ something neat and tarnished, so that is exactly what I did and now I like this creation even more.

Take a look ...

 A little more tatty lace, an old candle holder and a few more vintage velvet violets were added.

There are times when some of my creations just need that 'little more' than I at first thought but then they are just right ... just like in this case. I so happy I decided to work on this creation a little more because it is even neater than before.

Right now I almost ready to list a few more sari silk and hemp nests ready in my Etsy shop which will be in the next few days just in case you missed the last ones I had made.

 Thank you for stopping by and visiting me here at Todolwen and I hope you have enjoyed today's post. Whenever you a spare few minutes, do come again and see what I have been up to.

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.

  2. Yup! The "stand" absolutely made this even more perfect. Don'tcha just love how that happens?


  3. Karen, I don't know how you do it! This is gorgeous! Thank you so much for all the inspiration and sharing your wonderful talent. Love ya' Patricia B

  4. I liked it pre-stand, but like it doubly much with the stand. Definitely kicked it up a notch!
