Remember this beautiful nest?

Well, my son Brad gave me this wonderful apothecary jar and I knew right away that my nest had a home!! I used some speckled quail eggs my sweet friend Vikki sent me ;) to place inside the nest, layered some florals I already had on hand on the bottom and placed this beautiful work of art right on top. I took these photos late at night but it really did turn out so pretty!!
Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday dear friends ~
xxoo, Dawn

Everything is so lovely in your last few posts (well All your posts of course!) Dawn - I've just not had a chance to comment until now as the garden has kept me so busy....and dirty!
Your son and date looked smashing for the prom - bet they had fun. Your recent art piece with the silver tray is gorgeous.
I voted for your cover - hope so much they choose it - I think they will. I too am looking for glass container for the wrens' nest - it's quite large so may have to search for a clothe.

Have a fab week - hugs, Mary.

How perfect is that? I've spotted some apothecary jars at Kirklands Home and I need to go back and get them!

I just love those apothecary jars.. they're so hard to find in the UK and if you do find them they're expensive!

Looks perfect with the eggs!

I love the jar, it has such a beautiful shape, and the nest is perfect in it. I just love coming to your blog first thing every day, you never fail to share some beauty.
And speaking of beauty, your son and his date looked lovely together. I'm glad they had a good time.
Have a wonderful and creative day, and I'll see you tomorrow!

The jar and the nest looks like they were made for each other. A perfect match that most people wouldn't have thought to put together-You are so creative. Thanks for sharing~!

Hello,
Just visiting by way of Lori's blog, although I may have been here before. Either way...I'll be back.
Lovely work and I really like your nest display, I have started appreciating nest's and eggs much more and the beauty of them.
warmly, Carol
ps...I vote for the cover w/your artwork (not that any listens to me..)
