Birds And Nests

I am not too sure what it is about birds and nests, but they steal my heart.
Living in the desert, we have birds all year long, esp the sweet, little hummers.
I had this cardboard bird house and the cute tissue paper with a bird theme from 7 Gypsies and decided I couldn't wait any longer.......I had to create something special with them.
This is what I came up with. You could use this as an ornament, or have it sit out all year long on a cottage shelf.

The roof of the house is decorated with handmade paper roses, ribbons, a piece of vintage lace and of course, a nest with pearls for eggs.

No birdhouse would be complete without some eggs and of course, a nest.
This and more can be found on my website, Someplace In Thyme.


  1. Oh I love this little house! It is so quaint! What bird wouldn't want to nest with you as their decorator?


  2. Aloha Char,
    What an absolutely darling birdhouse! And your bird's nest is such a sweet touch. Thank you so much for sharing such wonderful creations.

  3. Hello Char,

  4. How beautiful!! I have a thing for birdhouses too! I have made several and showed them on my blog, and I have one more to decorate. I'm wondering if I should make it a wimter theme or blue to match my Christmas tree. Hmmmmm!! LOL!!
    Wonderful work!!!
