Bird Nest Ideas
















I've just spent 3 hours putting the bird nest instructions on here, and it still isn't how i want it, but we are going with it.


I can't figure out how you can have 3 spaces between paragraphs on the edit part, and end up with none on the post. =0/
Well, blessings, and i hope you will try these nests.
They are really fun, and much easier than putting them on here was. =))))

These look GREAT and I just love the added touch with the broach. This is right up my alley.

I'd like to do a link for you on my next post~ I don't have alot of visitors but I do have many sweet friends & they would LOVE this.

Let me know if that's okay.

Hugs~ J

These are GORGEOUS & your tutorials are WONDERFUL! I will have to try one...
Thank you for stopping by to say hello! I have been able to collect several bird nests through the years. We live close to Lake Ontario...from time to time we have pretty high winds. The nests tumble out of the trees...when I'm walking our pup I find them, put them away to get the bugs/critters out & then share them~ but yours will make projects SWEET without the wait!
Thanks so much~

Barb, I was happy to post your blog site and tutorial on mine. I know that a lot of my readers would love to know how to do this because nests are so popular right now! Always a sweet addition to a shelf or inside a teacup! :-)

These cone are exquisite !! Just the right combination of natural twigs and moss etc. and the perfect touch of a bit of bling !

You've done a great job. I'd love to post them on my blog. Should be easy ...no need to send me a picture.

Hopefully I can do that tonight or tomorrow - I haven't been able to post lately because my laptop charger kicked the bucket and i'm borrowing my friends .....what did we ever do without computers lol.

Second wreath should be up tonight ......was crazy busy this weekend.

Cheers,
bre

Hello Barb!
What wonderful blogs,,I have been reading for an hour. Your nests are so sweet. One of the things I miss about Oregon is the birch branches. The birch is not the same here, if you can find it at all. I had a big old birch tree in Or. and used it so much. The birch on the Or. coast is different too. ah,,,nothing like the gifts of the Willamette Valley, like,like,like the strawberry. I am missing home,, I guess I better get a plane reservation. I hope to meet you sometime. Blessings in your day!
