Found Nest

 We found this bird's nest woven with bits of birch bark yesterday.

Here it is displayed under the glass cloche sister Lynn 
found for me a few months ago.

Tomorrow Lynn and I are going to take a little day trip...
...see what we can find.

Details of the 700th post Give Back
 will be revealed in the next day or two.
I think you will like it!

 Until then, I hope your weekend brings a little bit of fun
 and a lot of quiet, calming moments!

The nest seems like the perfect thing for your cloche! Love your bird themes all together in front of the window.

Jill said...

I think that bird was a "stylist" ... I love how she used just the right touch of a white birch to enhance her place ...hee-hee.
Great find!

I love to find a real nest. Love that one with the birch bark in it and what a great cloche. I do know where a robin's nest is when she leaves it. Have a great weekend!

Sandi said...

Hi Laura, I remember when you first showed this cloche and I fell head over heels in love with it. The nest looks wonderful under it and the entire vignette is fabulous.

Beautiful nest! I was gifted a humming birds nest for a friends yard just the othere day, so sweet and intriging at best!

There is nothing better then the nest of nature, leaving the man made ones for others.

Have a beautiful hunt, you have inspired a weekend trip for my daughter and I will look for some nest as well.

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
and never stops at all.

That's very pretty under the lovely cloche... It always amazes me how they do it.... From the eagles to the little finches........No blueprints......! Maryanne xo

Okay, I know this isn't a contest or a one-up-manship blog, but how about an envy invoking one, I'm so wanting your large 1952 chef bell cloche.
Yes, your whole scene is calming. Thanks for sharing.

a bird's nest is an architectural wonder and you are very lucky to have found one like this.....

Your "found" nest is beautiful - especially under the cloche. I find nests, blown down from their perches, around my little farm all the time. It's a bittersweet thing. I'm always happy to have another beautiful item to add to my nature collection but sad that a sweet little bird lost its home. ;)

A friend told me about your blog. Very nice! I love your cloche, it is a real unusual one. Have fun with your sis! I have four of them and we have so much fun when we all get together and go gallavanting. That's what our mom use to call it.

Love your pictures and the idea of putting the bird nest in a cloche.
This bird nest is a very nice find and as it looks like it is still in a very good shape.

Hope you will have a great day with your sister.
My sister used to be my treasure hunting buddy too but now we are living about 650 miles apart from each other and we see each other only twice a year.
