Nests on the brain....

My antique sweet boy photograph doesn't have much to do with bird's nests
except that my boys are always so good about finding me
abandoned nests to display in our home.

Don't you think he's beautiful?

Look at the nest that my son Brent found for me!!
I'll be displaying it in the living room soon ~ still on the branch too!

I love finding gorgeous old nest paintings ~

Nests in old book pages ~

Nests on vintage or antique postcards ~

The sheet music page below doesn't really feature a nest
but don't you LOVE IT???

I love these illustrations ~

A cardinal's nest found in our front yard a few years back ~

I'm trying to decide how to display
a beautiful collection of bird nests
that I've collected over the years.

I love SEEING these wonderful creations ~
Maybe they would look good in cubbies or shadow boxes....
and how about displayed on either side of sweet Bucky??
What do you think?

I hope you have an amazing Wednesday precious friends,
hugs and love,

Oh Brent did a wonderful job finding that one! I always place my found nests in a plastic bag, spray them with bug spray, and seal them up. I imagine after the winter you folks had, no little mites are still in there. I can tell that you're thinking of display possibilities...looking forward to it.

Beautiful images, Dawn. Thanks for sharing. I would love to see a wall of shadow boxes and nest themed items on small shelves and architectural pieces. A gallery of nests!

Hi dear sweet Dawn,
what a beautiful nest your son Brent found for you. I received two nests like yours last fall as our city had to trim many of the trees in our street. I was really happy they didn't end up in the "crusher". Thank you for all the lovely nest pictures. You really do like them.
Have a wonderful day

P.S. Did you see how many followers you now have? 1313 - my lucky number, both of my girls were born on a 13!! I hope it will bring you luck too!!

That is a cute little fellow. He looks like he's thinking of what he was doing when they interrupted his play to get him all gussied up for that photo!
I love your nests. Thanks for sharing these.

OMG Dawn,
That nest Brent found is awesome! I think I'm borrowing the song sheet for my artful pages class, I'm doing a nature book & it's perfect. You know I love me the boy photos, that one is precious. I came on here looking for the seam binding link. I'm calling him today, of course I'll tell him you sent me.
Call later.

Nests are so precious...amazing HOW THEY know how to build one of these for the first time... (does they mother show them )....GOD must whisper in their little ears.
YES, your vintage young man IS beautiful.
My youngest brother was a beautiful boy too...blonde curly hair..bright blue eyes..he was my mother's darling.

ENJOY your finds, and I hope you find a spot for each one of them.

Dear Dawn...You must have been peeking into my nest as I have been looking for sheet music about birds or nest or something related to use in a vignette for my bathroom! You just keep on giving...after winning your giveaway and your sweet egg canvas I have been "gathering" to get it completed! I promise to share a pic whenever I get it completed! I have a large stoneware looking vase that I display sometimes with seasonal branches and I love to tuck in my birdie nests. I have a few other nest vignettes I do to...someday I will try to get some pics to share. How wide is your mantel over which Bucky is displayed? I have a few ideas!
