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.
