Before the leaves unfurled on their branches, one could count the nests left empty when summer called it a day. I never realized just how many little birds had made their homes in my yard. There is something so hopeful about a nest...new beginnings and promises in little speckled eggs. Easter came and went too quickly this spring...almost before we could count our colored eggs...leaving April out of the festivities. Easter should always be in April...in my humble opinion. There is more blue in an April sky...more hope for flowering things.
So April became a month of nests. We fuss about like mother birds...fluffling, arranging, and organizing our nests. And we place nests in cozy corners....filled with eggs...or baby dolls...or fairies. Then we exchange nests with others! Vivian of viv out on a whim organized a large number of women suffering from Spring Fever...and we had it bad...into partners for a Nest Swap. Each would make her partner the most "stinkin' cute" nest and send it winging on its way...but only when it was "too cute to give away." That was the rule. I am learning to make two of everything because I have a hard time parting with some of my creations. I am sure I'm not the only one. I have seen some beautiful examples of "thinking outside the box." This community not only sparks creativity...it sets it ablaze. Isn't it wonderful!
I have seen these on Pinterest and wished for one.
Holly made it herself...I could hardly believe it!
Thank you, Holly. I love it so much!
