A picture is worth a thousand words. Thanks for hosting!!!

Re purposing:

I love finding unique pieces to put my hand made nests in.





From a broken bowl holder....


From an old tin scoop.....

To a 'duplex' nest home. =0)




More coming soon!!

And don't forget to sign up for my drawing on the 15th.
A nest is sure to be at least one of the prizes!!!

Blessings,

Barbara Jean

I love that you place your nests in these repurposed things Barb!! They're both so beautiful ~ it's so neat to use the dried stems of your flowers for nest material too!! I do believe you're thinking like a little mama bird ~ xxoo, Dawn

Hello Barbara Jean...

Ohh my, I just adore your little nests! What a great way to repurpose an item...I love that beautiful little nest in the decorative metal holder! But I have to tell you, my favorite is your little metal scoop with the bird nests...that is simply darling!!! What a grand idea! Oooh, wished I had a metal scoop to do that with...I'll have to keep a look-out for one! I really do love how that looks!!!

This is my first time to visit your blog...it's lovely! Just wanted to let you know that I added you to my list of "blog follows"...I'm looking forward to your upcoming posts!

So nice to meet you...
Warmest wishes,
Chari

Hello Barbara Jean, I have a cousin who lives in New Mexico named Barbara Jean. I love your nests and the unique ways you find a home for them. I'll be back for the give-a-way. Maybe I will be lucky.

Hugs...Jeanne
