Make it :: A Spring Nest

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

One of my most precious treasures is my collection of actual birds’ nests .  Of course, I only collect if I find one on the ground, discarded and clearly not in use.  This happens so rarely, since they are often reused again and again, which is why I treasure the ones that I have. The way the bird weaves and shapes with the promise of safety and coziness is breathtaking.

One day, a few springs ago, I decided to make a spring nest — just like a mama bird.  I shaped the eggs out of clay, painted them blue, and wove a snug little nest for them to rest in.

Each spring since, I set the nest in my dining room as a way to welcome the promise of new life. More photographs and directions can be found here, at my other blog.

Happy spring cleaning and nesting!
