In the nesting mood ~

I just love them.
Bird's nests are beautiful to me....intricate works of art ~
created by such small creatures.

A few glimpses at what I've been up to in the studio:

Plus I've been getting a few things together
for the Southern Belle
gathering Saturday!!!
I can't wait to meet everyone....

I wish you all were going to be there ~
I would love to meet each and every one of you!

Love all your beautiful nests especially the one in the jar. Our rain is suppose to turn to snow today. I am hoping the weatherman is wrong wrong wrong.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Your nests and eggs are beautiful, Dawn! I just put some nests together; maybe it is seeing all the birds around and collecting for their nests. Your piece turned out beautiful! Love how you used the mat here.

Dorthe said...

So lovely! I love bird nests, as well. I am fascinated by the beauty and complexity of these wonders.


Joy Lett said...

As always wonderous. I hope the rain comes too. It's like driving in a yellow fog. I will get by Griffin today- yesterday was too full- you know what I mean. Have fun this weekend.

Becky said...

Hi Dawn:
Your new work is beautiful. Hope you have a grand time at Southern Belle Gathering. I'm planning to finish the wedding gown today, and then clean house in prep for a houseful of guests next week! Have a creative day!

Numinosity said...

These are exquisitely done. I can only imagine how beautiful they must be in person.


Hearts Turned said...

What beautiful birdie creations, Dawn--love them all! You have such a lovely style...I always enjoy seeing what you're working on!

Hope your day is wonderful--I love rainy days--great for the creative juices!

Vee said...

Last night my step-daughter told me that I decorated "unusually." So I asked why and she told me that she'd never seen so many nests around and a wasp nest, to boot. Ha! I didn't know that Abbie was giving away such treasures...I'm off to snag them. Thanks!

Dawn, every time you create another bird themed assemblage, they just get prettier and prettier.


nancarts said...

Dawn, the nests are all so beautiful! I like the one in the jar..and also the assemblage is amazing. Your work is so great.
Rain here tomorrow, so maybe it will help with allergies.

Smiles and Blessings,

Hello, Sorry I haven't commented in a while, even though I have visited often. I love your new artwork. I adore birds and their nests. Each year we find their abadoned homes in our back yard garden. I am sooooo sad I will not be able to attend the Southern Belles get together. I would have loved to take part in your class.
Maybe another time?
Blessings, Gerri

Gerushia's New World said... beautiful and subtle, yet full of wonder!! I adore bird eggs as well. You've taken something that is naturally beautiful and added yet another dimension.

Also, if you have a spare moment, you may find my newest blog entry interesting. I've done a little "before and after" tutorial on my vintage photo watercolor/collage. I've shown the original black and white photos and then shown what they look like in the watercolor/collage. I believe you have two of the showcased pieces...the prints you won on my giveaway.

Thanks so much:

Sandy said...

You must be getting our showers from yesterday they were supposed to move your way. The artwork is exquisite as usual! I so wish I could be one of the belles at the gathering! Be sure and take lots of pics to share with us.

Karen said...

I adore your nests. They are always so cute and real looking.

Jenny said...

Dawn, you're nests are amazing, soo adorable! You are one talented lady!

Sylvia (at) Lily's Pad and Petals said...

Oh boy - don't get me started on these nests - gorgeous and now I'll want to do something similar - you are so talented.

Createology said...

Your Sweet Home nest plaque is just so sweet and simple and the perfect homage to birdies. Happy creating...

JaneT said...

All of your creations are to die for, but that nest in a jar is exceptional. Wish I lived near where the gathering is going to be held. Louisiana just isn't close to much of anything. LOL Well, it is close to good Cajun food!

Lisa said...

OH Yes, the art is perfect. So Dawn. I swear I could be at an art show with 30 zillion other works & could pick your out in a minute. Remember when you said you didn't have any one thing that was your 'thing'. Well you do, it's your style! Feathered Nest baby! Lisa

The Rustic Victorian said...

Bee-You-Tee-Full!!!!! so YOU!

Lisa said...

your nest piece is so gorgeous and romantic...i especially love how you preserved the integrity of the beautiful vintage album page.

Scarlett Clay said...

Enjoyed your post! As always, thanks for the inspiration and lovely photos to look at!

Jann said...

Oh, your birds' nests are exquisite, Dawn--I love them!

Jann said...

Do you still have an Etsy shop, Dawn? I can't find it. Also, you should create a tutorial for those wonderful little nests--they are just fabulous!
