Can I Get Some Birds With Those Eggs?

Like a lot of you, I have nests and eggs all over my house.  It’s been starting to get to me, though, that with all these nests and eggs, I don’t have any birds around!  So I picked up two while at Michael’s recently.  One was $3.99 and the other $1.99. 


This happy fella is clipped to the birdcage that I won from Sissie at Sissie’s Shabby Cottage last year.  I think this is also my largest nest with eggs {found at Tuesday Morning last year and modified}.


He was one of the few that looked like an actual bird.


I like it!  The second one had a Blue Jay look about it {although the tail feathers aren’t quite realistic}.  I put him in my refashioned dining room table arrangement with the nest and egg addition I had added recently.


He’s good for now.  Although, I may  move him if I find a spot I like better.  Meanwhile, decorating meltdown averted!

Perfect combos! Now does this prove the age-old question of which came first? The egg in this case!

The birds add such a nice touch. I have dollar store ones from last year. They held up suprisingly well considering they were from the $1 store, oh and of course S and N kept their hands off them!

Hello Kathy,

Your birds and nests look great! I have birds but no nests. I need to remedy that!

How cute is that! You have now started something...everyone will want birds to go with their nest and eggs.

Have a wonderful weekend,
