Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!

faux blue eggs in a real bird's nest
Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  Remember a few weeks ago I shared the photo below and told you that some wrens had built a nest in the cavity of the angel's head? Then on a really hot Saturday the babies flew away and we haven't seen them since. Well...I finally took the angel's head down and took out this oh-so-romantic nest!  It took my breath away when I pulled it out!  

The wren's nest was behind this angel's head
They not only built their home in this romantic spot but their nest was truly beautiful!  It had a white feather at the head of the nest!  I know it wasn't one of their feathers because they were brown birds!  Talk about feathering the nest!!!



It is now on display in My Romantic Home


I moved my living room around last weekend and I put the nest in silver bowl filled with shells and covered it with a cloche and it's now on top of this old dresser.



Thank you little wren's for sharing your beautiful nest with me! You are welcome to build another one there next year!

This is so romantic Cindy. I haven't lifted the nest out from where our House Wren had her eggs and the babies have flown. I hope it is their song I hear in the mornings. I hope you have a blessed weekend and I appreciate you being a gracious hostess,
Kathy

Love your wrens nest, we also had a family in a little decorative house, they were here last year and back this year. It is our enjoyment, listening to them and watching them. They are so busy, but never mess on anything. So quiet when they left. Love your room with the nest in it and the cloche.thank you for sharing

The birds nest is absolutely delightful, I love the soft downy feathers they have used in it. I hope that some of the eggs did actually hatch or did the fly away and leave it abandoned :(

Mind the mites Cindy...old nests can give you a terrible time.
Watch out for carpet beetle larvae who love old nests.
They don't just eat carpets..but anything natural.... silk, wool...

Apart from that they are lovely...yes.

Hi Cindy: Thank you for hosting the link party today--it's my first time participating. So many lovely projects and gardens to look at! I am a bird lover, so your nest with the little blue eggs are just wonderful. Have a great weekend!

Cindy I love your bird nest. Your birds were a little fancier
then mine. I have a wren in my urn right by the front door and they are getting big. Their nest is made from pine straw, oak sticks and I am not sure what else. Last year I had one on my back porch that used the horse hair from the horse next door. It is amazing at what they can do in such a short period of time. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks for hosting :)

The Raw Pizza Extravaganza (non-dehydrated raw pizza) takes about 30 to 40 minutes to prepare but is well worth it! I have to tell you this pizza trumps any cooked pizza out there! This is what cooked pizza is TRYING to taste like!
