A New Nest ...

Hello my dear friends,

Easter was very quiet here this time, just my younger daughter, our furry babies and me. No fancy treats, gifts or decorations, just simple, peaceful and nice and nice is good in my book. I did make something for our home though for the occasion, just one single piece but I love it. 

I am making do with what I have with many things and that is what I did with my Easter decor. It was simple, pretty and perfect in my eyes. I had recently crochet a nest from garden twine but not done anything with it but now it was exactly what I needed for this time of the year. Combined with some fake pussy will twigs, a few of my sari silk daisies, some wooden eggs and dried grass that I had gathered late last summer it became my Easter nest and this is it.

I hope you enjoy it!

I have already shared this on Instagram but I went one step further.

 I actually asked people if they would be interested in me making a DIY kit for this nest. I would  list it my Etsy shop on a order basis and it would have everything you need to make your own.

The kit would contain(so far) ...

... a crochet nest made from garden twine,
... 3 wooden eggs,
 ... 3 pussy willow twigs,
... 3 sari silk daisies (on short stems),
... 3 dandelion blowy flowers (also on short stems),
... 6 feet of seam binding (not sure of the colors yet),
... 3 feet of cotton lace,
... bedding for the nest (which is still be decided because I can't send grass)
... and maybe a few more bits and pieces but I am not quite sure just yet.

I can't tell you how happy I was because over 85% of the ones that took part in my poll taking said yes, they would be interested in such a kit!!

So my lovelies, now to you ...

... would you be possibly interested in such a kit? It wouldn't happen for a little while because of what is going on in the world right now and I am so trying to stay at home and not go out but then it might be something to look forward to for you and for me too. I love making stuff and this kit would be so much fun for me to put together and possibly for you to create your own nest too?!

So ... let me know your thoughts please!

It was so nice of you to stop by today again.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day and stay healthy.
