Show and Tell Sunday


Its show and tell Sunday again! Hosted by Cindy this week. You can find a list of participants here. This weeks theme is Vintage collection. The collection I'm showing today is not vintage but I think it fits in perfect with the vintage style. My favorite collection is real nest!






The one with the real eggs is my favorite. My sweet husband recently brought it home. He found it in some equipment that had tipped over. Apparently the poor little birds had built the nest and layed their eggs only to have their access cut off from it. I like to think it was early enough in the season for them to build another one. Bitter sweet. Oh how I love this nest. Its just so perfect. The white puffs are raw cotton. It even has snake skin in it and horse hair. Truly a Texas nest! And off course the sweet sweet tiny eggs. My husband was the cutest thing when he brought it home. He came in very carefully balancing a box in his hand, the very gently set in on the table. He said" I have something for you!" He slowly and carefully opened the box. I thought it must be some kind of live animal the way he was acting! Then I saw it and jump up and down and gave him the biggest hug ever! He really is a wonderful catch. Lucky me:)



The nest in the white cage was givin to me by my father in law. It really soft and made of grass. I thought it was so sweet of him to bring it to me.




Enjoy your blog visits and have a wonderful Sunday! I can't wait to see all the wonderful collections!

Little Brown Sparrow said...

I collect nests too! It started years ago when I was a kid, along with bones, skulls, neat bits of wood...I have a bird skull that's been in my possession for nearly 20 years.

Anyway- that first nest is exquisite! None of mine are as pretty as that, but being in Australia I have some really tiny ones, because we have some really tiny birds! I should share a photo of the collection box my brother made that I keep them in...
