Giving it a Home

My found nest now has a home in a pink pedestal candy dish. And two wooden eggs made the vignette come alive.

My sister, commenting on the post about finding the nest, said her favorite part of the find is the string. We agreed that mama bird probably had it in her beak, and the daddy bird said "What are you going to do with that old thing?" to which she replied "You know me, I can take anything and turn it into something homey and cute." And the string woven loosely through the twigs is something that I'm sure she stepped back from and said "it works."

Then Beth added the cutest outlook on the birds who built this really quaint nest . . . they are the same birds who in cartoon movies are tying the strings of an apron into a bow around some fairy tale princess.
