Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!


It's the first Show and Tell Friday since Spring has sprung!  It feels more like Winter here in Northern California though! Cold, wet and very windy!!!  I'm so ready for warmer weather!


In honor of Spring, I'm sharing some nests that I've decorated with over the years! 

I had planned on sharing my huge bouquet of lilacs I cut from my garden but I haven't had a chance to take a photo of them yet...Maybe I'll share that next week!

I love nests and I love tucking them here and there...





If you are joining in on Show and Tell Friday, please remember that your Show and Tell needs to be something from your home or garden. Please read the Show and Tell Guidelines for step-by-step instructions on how to participate.

Your nests are lovely, Cindy. I have one that I keep on our dining room hutch. We are also having very cold temps here in New England. It's back down in the 30's and feeling like spring will never arrive! Have a great weekend... Donna

Thanks for hosting the linky party. I love your nests. I had one, but it got ruined in the rain, because I put it on my front porch. Lesson learned - next time it stays inside in the dry. They look so sweet with the eggs in them.

Elsie said...

Love your nest Cindy, very pretty.
I have one with green eggs and a
bluebird under glass. Great party
your having. It sure makes it easier to blog hop. Hope you and Lauren have a wonderful weekend
and I sure hope it warms up for you.

That floral tea cup and saucer is so beautiful! I'm with you in being ready for warmer weather. Here in southeast Wisconsin we had 60s last week then it snowed the other day (gone now though) and it's in the 30s again! Gah!

Hi Cindy~
I love to use pretty embellished nests in my vignettes, too! Something about them just screams "spring"...in a quiet sort of way!
This is my first time participating in Show & Tell Friday! I'm looking forward to seeing all the beautiful posts!
Have a beautiful weekend~

So strange - i swear i linked up to your party last week? hummm?

Lastiques said...

That second picture cracks me up every time I look at it. In my mind the little girl's blue clothes and the blue eggs look like little girl legs! I think that everytime I see it and have to remind myself that those are eggs! I do love the display.

Carolyn said...
