A new nest ornament.
Can you see it?
Look close.
(click on picture)

Here it is!!

Made from these.
Little tin measuring cups.
Now to find some more. =)

Just tuck in some lace, and cheesecloth,
One of my little nests, (tutorial here) some cottonwood fluff,
a little feather and some eggs.
And there you have it.

Oh Barbara Jean,
What a sweet ornament. I love everything to do with little birdies so I love, love, love little nests and eggs. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for those little vintage measuring cups. What a wonderfully creative idea. Thank you for sharing. Have a fantabulous weekend.

Hugs and Kisses,

This caught my eye (via Funky Junk)! So adorable. I have a set of those tin measuring cups that belonged to my dear mother-in-law. How precious would that be to make an ornament to hang on my kitchen tree, from that very set? Thanks so much for the inspiration... very cute! -Tammy

I just love the nest so cute. I am amazaed of things bloggers can think up to do. That is what is so fun about blogging all the things we learn and people we meet. The baby shoe tutorial is good also never thought about doing that but I found several pairs last summer and have them in the studio setting every where, love them
