Bird Nest Giveaway! 3 days left!

Mini Bird Nest.

i think i already posted this photo. It is one of the mini nests that will be given for 2nd and 3rd place in the drawing Feb 10th.
I couldn't stand just drawing one name!
And wait till you see what I've added since this photo was taken. =0))
This cozy place is for you
Bird Nest Finds.
Remember when i posted some of the things i had found for possible bird nests?
Did you pay extra attention to the pink box on the right?
Here is another photo of it "in production". (this is that pink box. it was an old jewelry box. One with the colorful stained type glass sitting in it).
And here is my sweet granddaughter with the finished giveaway nest.
(she is, of course, the best prize any grandma could have!) =0)
Isn't she wonderful? And just as sweet as she is cute!
OK, back to the bird nest.
Here it is, and I can't wait to give it to some lucky person.
Did you notice i added a bird?

I have received so many sweet comments on the bird nests I make, and many thanks for the tutorial on how to make your own.
I would love to have pictures to post on my blog, and have one in my email box right now (from France!) that i am trying to figure out how to load.

This has been so fun. Is it the 10th yet?

STILL TIME TO ENTER, AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS!

You can comment on this post now to leave an entry.

Blessings, and more blessings.

Hi Barb - you can change a post so no one can leave anymore comments. That's what I'll do at the end of my giveaway.
You go to edit posts and choose post options. You'll be offered the option of allow or don't allow for reader comments.
That way no one else can enter.
Hope that was helpful!
Have fun!

Just finished wandering around your world. So many wonderful treasures and inspiration. Had to laugh at your talent to fly and breathe under water! What a hoot! I can relate to, 'Lord change ME not the other person' amazing how that works, isn't it?! OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD
Have a Blessed Lord's Day, Candy

P.S. REALLY...everyday is His day!

Barb, these nests are absolutely to die for. I hope (fingers crossed!) my name is pulled as I would love to have one of your exquisite pieces of art.

The transformed pink jewelry box is so beautiful - it brought tears to my eyes ... truly!

Your granddaughter is such a sweet little you! Be proud!

Haven't made a nest yet from your tutorial, but do plan on it! Thanks again for teaching us how!

Happy Sunday.

Hi Barb, LOVE that you are making wonderful memories with your sweet granddaughter, that's the kind of thing we always remember, isn't it? I remember going to spend the night at my Grandma's and getting sooooo excited when she got out her sewing machine to make some Barbie clothes for me. Funny thing is, I'm sure she BOUGHT a lot of gifts for me through the years, but the sharing of her time and talent has been what I remember almost 50 years later. Have a great week, friend!

What a sweet little Easter AND Springtime display! I wish I could help with the underline problem. I hope someone has written you about it by now as I have not a clue. I have only been blogging a short time and struggle with EVERYTHING! :) As I said, it is a mystery to me how some bloggers keep up with it. I suppose it becomes easier the longer you are on here. Thank you for your visit. :)
