Life and Art Collide

These days from late February to now have been very
serendipitous, as I have, quite often, experienced life
and art colliding.

Nests have been such a reoccurring theme as I am hosting
a lovely pair of visitors that have temporarily taken residence
in a wreath decorating the front door of my home, while at the
same time preparing to teach two nest inspired workshops,
EGG-ology and Of Nested Visions, at Artfest.

The time has passed so swiftly, days turning into weeks, and
before long the weeks becoming a month. As I embark upon
my travels, I leave you with glimpses of both the life and art
nests, that have filled my life with such joy...

First there was one...

Then two...

Next three...

And four...

Perhaps five...
And to-date there are seven eggs in the little nest on the door.
Mama has been sitting on the nest day and night, so I have yet
to find an opportunity to capture a photo of all seven miracles.


See you when I return!

Tracie, these are so beautiful - makes me want to dash out to the greenhouse to photograph the nest I rescued at the end of last season when we were clearing overgrowth in the garden. It's still there, sitting on a little terracotta plant pot.

I wanted to thank you again for all the 'traffic' that has come to my two blogs since you featured me on your last week. I've now put my latest journal onto my journaling blog. Enjoy your travels; catch up with you soon. Ann (from UK)

I have a bird house outside my family room window that a mama bird built a nest in. I love nests as well. Thank you for sharing!
