On a Bird Theme

I seem to have many bird and egg decorations around my house and I thought I'd share them here. The first is a small house with glass sides ( only 3 unfortunately. One is gone.) 

 I've taken the house off the base to show you the nest with three very real looking styrofoam eggs in it.

Here are a few of the eggs in my collection. The largest one is an Emu egg. the next is an egg provided by our pet pigeon, and the last one is a quail egg from the grocery store.

 . I bought 2 dozen quail eggs and asked my DH to "blow" them for me.I display them in a white ceramic basket.

                                       More abandoned nests , one with quail eggs.

Just another shelf with some rocks,a hawk feather, and a weird seed head. That gray thing with the garden tools is actually a picture frame. If you look hard you can see the hinges on the left side.

                           Some of my Marjolein Bastin pretties and a paper wasp nest.

       The display on my sewing machine has changed again. The wire thing in the middle appeals to me but I have no idea what its meant for. So of course I had to stick a ceramic bird on it with some brown fibres to make a 'nest'.

.I hope you've enjoyed  this peek at my house. I have more pics but that will be for next time

              Take care, Granny Marigold


  1. How very lovely your displays are. Certainly brings the promise of spring and birdsong closer and we certainly need that, especially in January. Do you have more nests "hidden" in the drawers of your old Singer sewing machine?

    1. I'm afraid that at this point the little man has some of his treasures hidden away in the drawers! I do have some very old pamphlets having to do with sewing in one drawer and several old and pretty buttons in another. He loves to line them up; or play Button, button, who's got the button. I wonder if anyone else plays that old game any more?
