NESTING......................

Recently I participated in a NEST SWAP over at viv on a whim's and my partner was Debby over at Cozy Blanket.
My nest is just so darn sweet I had to show it off.  She took a small wooden box and filled it with excelsior, and a sweet old doily, then made a little paper and yarn bunting for the outside. 
 
She loaded it with goodies like these morning glory seeds that will be planted this weekend.
                                                            very vintage pink pearl buttons
 
 
                                                       This cute postcard that says it best..............
                                                      These adorable tags she made herself................
She also added these birdie scrapbook  goodies that I haven't put on anything yet but will.


 
She sent this very old glass bird that she says is older than her....and these plastic eggs--there were more  but one of our cats Mato---keeps taking them and chewing on them.  The chewed one was in her food dish the same day I put the nest on my work table in my studio.  She loves to lay up there because  it has a glass top on most of it and is either warm when the chandelier light is on or is cool when the light is off.  I don't know why she is so attracted to the plastic eggs but she is a cat and does what she likes. 
 
This adorable little golden book was also in my surprise and I love it. Debby sent it for my grandchildren and they will all be reading this. Thank you so much Debby I love the swap but especially love our new friendship that has grown over the course of the swap.
 
This is the nest I sent Debby.......................
 
 
I repurposed an old wooden bowl and covered it with the edge of an old bedpread and a vintage tea dyed doilie.  I had these letters to add, a vintage glass ornament, a vintage rhinestone earring, a 1920 post card and a LOVE IS...post card.  The dowel is from an old sewing factory.  I also sent a jar of huckleberry honey...huckleberries being wild berries from our neck of the US.

That little golden book :the wonders of Nature was my favorite as a child. Looks like a fun swap and something a little bit different too!
