Here we have a real birds nest, that I was so happy to find in my back yard. It must have fallen out of a tree. It was nice and clean, and just so perfect. Like a work of art. I sprayed it with polyurethane to preserve it. The little eggs are wooden, and I painted them a robins egg blue. I speckled them with a little bit of brown paint on an old toothbrush. The little bird next to it, I found in a thrift shop. He is bone china, and I think I paid 1.00 for him.
Next is another cheap find from the thrift shop. It is very small, and I think it is meant to go in some type of holder that uses a votive candle. I decided to put some pretty buttons in it, and put a little plate with roses under it. I wish you could see the detail on this pretty little plate I found at an outdoor flea market for about $3.00.
This is a big cloche I purchased at Home Goods. This was about $7.00, and my teacups fit perfectly underneath it, and keeps them clean.
I look forward to many more fun parties to join. Hope you liked my ideas, and thanks so much for coming for a visit.
