I'm sure you've noticed...once we are done crafting for Easter, there's a little lull in blogland.
And then along came Viv, with a great idea.....
A nest swap!
My partner for this swap was Laura who blogs at Vintage Bettys.
Laura was kind enough to ask me what kind of look I wanted. I said I liked the realistic look.
Well...Laura hit it out of the park!
When looking around the Internet, I saw lots of different things with nests and birds....
tea cups, tiered stands, pillows with nests added to them, cloches with nests under them and nests with all sorts of different things in them....
I never saw a mason jar with a nest and a bird in it!
Laura painted the lid, added darling paper, and a daisy flower trim.
Laura made the bird and the eggs, which I couldn't seem to get a good picture of, out of paperclay! I can't get over the bird....Laura did such a great job of painting this bird! Love the colors!
Such a fun swap with another blogpal!!
Thank you Laura!
