This sweet nest was sent to me from Cati Ann who was my swap partner in Viv's nest swap. She really was creative.I know it is hard to see the bird. No matter how I tried I couldn't get it show better. I love the egg......it is a broken Christmas ornament. Looks pretty real.
She also sent me a charm and a something I need to ask her about. Also this yummy honey. I thought it was a candle. But when I opened it there were no wicks. It is gooood. She is from the state of Washington.
Okay, I know, sideways. Some of you said you were wondering what I would do with my Ball jars. Well, I gave one to my friend Sue when we met at the Rural Society Sale over the week-end. (More on that in another post) Then yesterday we were invited to a birthday cook-out. I wanted to take something to the host that wasn't having the birthday. So five minutes before I left I grabbed a Ball jar, some of that pink scarf I knitted that was for practive, added a couple real quail eggs, sealed the lid with the bird wire inside and voila. I told my friend to take the stuff out and replace it with something else. For all of you that are buying the Ball jars or having the blue Mason jars, save one for a swap I am thinking of having later this summer. Or is you don't have one find one. (I heard they are selling single ones in Walmart in the craft section for peanuts.) I may just have to get more to have on hand for quick gifts for all ages.
This is where my new nest ended up. I just painted this table Duck Egg Blue (ASCP). I haven't waxed it yet.
