Finished Bird Nests in 2009







Because I have been sick for awhile,
and because I have already posted some of my newly finished things on other posts,
I decided to show you some of my favorite treasures I have done this year.

Bird Nests

I make my own,
and I love to put them on or in unusual things.

Like spoons.....

or two....




or like 1 1/2" pins.....

or frames with old music....


Another framed piece, in sweet Spring colors....


A flower nest out of handmade lace paper,
sitting on a vintage glove....

How about an old rusty and patina piece,
or a little tin scoop.


*or old light fixtures....

jewelry boxes...




and tiny silver plates painted black.


So these are a few I have done.
Some still available at the store.

and there is a

Hi Barb! I don't know how I missed some of these bird nests you made this year as I read your blog faithfully but the one on the spoon is beautifully genius! I can't wait for it to warm up outside so I can scrounge around for some pine leaves and make one for myself!!! :)

Hey Barbara Jean!

I do love your bird nests! My kitchen is done in birds. I have birds everywhere in there! I have a real birds nest right outside my window in a rose bush. Wonder if I can bring it in the house? It sure is cute!

Get R Done Friday!
Happy New Year!

These are just some of the most adorable things I've seen!!! I love eggs, and have painted on quite a few, and I've also woven baskets from different things, but making these sweet little bird's nest is just a wonderful idea! I will have to check out your tutorials! Linda

Pearl Maple said...

Your bird nest creations are simply beautiful. Can I ask where you find the egg forms? Our local craft stores are kind of limited and always on a look out for new finds.

I love all of your bird nest creations, they are wonderful. I was just thinking about spring and nests, and now I am really inspired.

Happy New Year!

These are so cute! Bird's nests are such a sweet surprise- my parents found one in their Christmas tree this year after it was up. They put a little cardinal in it and it was quickly the conversation piece of the season.
