Since I made those ATCs for Marion's Bird People swap, I have had bird people on the brain. So when I checked this week's Tag Tuesday theme, FANTASTIC AND STRANGE, it just had to be, yes, you guessed it, more bird people, lol!
This is what I came up with -
And this was the little explanation which went with the tag, about the newly discovered fantastic and strange Bird People of Silk Nest Island -
The island was named by the man who discovered it, Sir Walter Featherbottom. The homes of these exotic creatures are giant nests made with delightfully colourful strips of silk, the origins of which are still very much a mystery. Exploration of the island and search for answers to the many questions these bird people have raised are ongoing.
I am getting very fond of bird people ;-), and I could have written pages and pages about the professor, Sir Walter Featherbottom, and his explorations of Silk Nest Island.
And now to the EGG bit of the blog title. I wanted to post a photo for this week's theme of EGGS over at the Our Beautiful World blog. They are tiny little spun cotton eggs, which I keep in my beautiful and much treasured Shabby nest, one of Vicki's designer nests which she sells to benefit some wonderful charities. If you are really really quick, she has just put six utterly amazing nests in her Etsy shop, and you might be lucky and get your hands on one.
