Spring might not have sprung outside yet, it is still bitterly cold, but it certainly has arrived inside my home. In the form of a parcel from dear Vicki, nest maker extraordinaire. Yes, you guessed it, my nests from Vicki are here, and I am such a happy bunny! Many of you will have seen, coveted, or even held Vicki's amazing nests, they really are the most beautiful creations. I finally ordered two nests, one for our home in the UK, and one for our home in France, last year. And here they are. This is how they arrived, beautifully wrapped in tissue paper stamped with the sweetest bird nests -
Isnt' that just the cutest little birdie tag?
Deep breath, carefully peeling back the tissue paper, and there it is, the shabby chic nest in all its white glory -
I carefully took it out and rested it on a chalice -
and then spent ages oohing and aahing over all the beautiful laces and embellishments. Vicki said she had used some of her mother's laces in the creation of these nests as well, I wonder which ones?
Two sweet little eggs were nestled in the middle of the nest -
Isn't it just so breathtakingly beautiful?
Yep, but just as beautiful is this one, the woodland nest, oh my -
Such a profusion of beautiful soft greens and browns, just like taking a walk in the woods. See the tiny little duck blue eggs?
There are so many beautiful embellishments
And here they both are. Now I just need to make a decision which one to take to France and which one to keep here in the UK. That is going to be sooooo difficult!
Thank you so much for visiting. If you would like to find out more about Vicki's nests, please visit her blog here, and her Etsy shop here.
I am linking this post to Becky's delightful Blissful Whites Wednesday party so that lots of people can admire these wonderful nests.
