~ The Bell Jar - Cloche Party

There are some gifts that are so special they become treasures.
And they may not cost a single penny.

Sweet Husband has found two nests that I love so much.
One I still cannot find. But I'm thankful for this one.

And yes, everything you see in the nest,
except the blue eggs,
the bird brought in for her
own construction plans.
Old white paper, black plastic, string, moss
and what looks like cotton for the eggs!
No idea where she got that lovely
fluffy white goodness from.

It was huge!
Whatever little bird created it, wanted a mansion it appears.
Funny that is was so large,
and yet the little middle that was made
to hold the eggs,
was quite small.

This was all she really needed.
The Heart of the Nest.
Makes me think, how about you?

See Y'All Soon~

Lots of Lovely cloches

  3. Yup, the heart of the nest is all I need, Donna! This is really beautiful. Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my cloches. I'm glad there are one or two people that haven't seen them! : ) I had to laugh at the holiday portion of your comment. I agree and you know, I have more ideas than I do cloches for what I can do at the holidays!

  4. That is so pretty! What a great display. You can't go wrong with something nature made. Your actual cloche is great as well.

That's so wonderful to find a natural nest and is just perfect for your cloche... what a beautiful cloche it is... love all the bird details in the stand and I like how you added the key to your cloche... it goes perfectly with the key display in your shadow box... lovely vignette you have created.
