Beautiful images for your mosaic. Bird nests and bird houses have always intrigued me. It's amazing to watch a bird building a nest. They are so meticulous with what they select.

Hi sweetie... I so agree with you.

Nests are the sure fire sign that spring is here. I love your mantle and of course your splendid painting!

The bird in the tree is awesome.

I have several bird houses and would love to have a yard full of them. But then... LOL there would be their AFTER thoughts to clean up! :)

Have the best week!

Dear Karen -
Thanks for commenting on my blog the other day!
Nice to meet you....
Now, a comment on your lovely blog.
I am a nest girl, too, and have several set around. I love birds, and houses, too. Your post today is great.

I am a HUGE fan of the designs you did for the '50's fabric on Spoonflower! The saddle shoes alone are magnificent. Carry on!

Hope to "talk" again sometime...

Good morning dearest! We have a robin that has built her nest right under the over hang to our front door! I have named her, "Mrs. Robinson" and it is a joy to watch her at her duties. I also enjoy collecting birds' nests of all sorts and I even made one of wire!!!!

Your blog name is appropriate named dearest; you always inspire me in so many ways. I shall go quietly check up on Mrs. R.

Love to you, Anita

Beautiful! I love nests and birds and bird houses. I need a few more bird houses to hang outside (shopping list)! Have a wonderful week!

Mary said...

I think robin's egg blue must be the most beautiful color on earth -- and this comes from someone who never met a color she didn't like! I love your nest collection and decor, Karen. And I, too, feel a sense of hope every time I see this symbol of rebirth. Thanks for sharing your beautiful images at MM. :)

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

Hi Karen...Thank-you for visiting CollectInTexas for Pink Saturday. I'm still waiting on my copy of Artful Blogging as I hear others are as well. Aren't birds the most fantastic nesters? Last year we had a nest of Texas Mockingbirds build a nest in a rose bush. It was a delight to watch nest building to flight of the three RoseBush Babies as I called them. So enjoyed your mosaic and pictures....Sue

I love bird nests, too, Karen. Your cloche with the nest is my favorite....I think I will have to do that with one of mine! Happy Tuesday! Dana

Hi Karen, thank you so much for visiting my grandson's birthday post. I appreciate your sweet comment so much and so did he.

I love your mosaic of birds nests today. My love is birds and nests too. My mantel is all about nests and birds too. It just makes me smile. Your mantel is so charming. It just says 'spring' doesn't it?
The last photo is so perfect for the word hope. The little bird is so sweet.

Happy spring Karen.
Hugs, Jeanne
