Last week I got a lovely package in the mail... it was from the 'A Bird In The Hand' swap. Wow, it was such a beautiful surprise.
Kristen Klump Pare is the artist. Honestly, the photos on her blog are so much prettier than this but I tried my best to capture the detail... the nest is mossy and twiggy and natural and has some oh-so-soft muslin tied into a fluffy bow. The silvery-gray balls look so good with everything in there- and the spotted feather just may be one of my favorite details of the whole thing.
The eggs are covered in a script paper and they look perfect in there with the soft pink rose.
The collage has more of that pretty muslin and a piece of fabric with faded flowers. There are a few pearls tucked in here and there. The birds (chickadees? I'm totally guessing because I don't know my wild birds!) are quite at home with another one of those spotted feathers.
This button is absolutely to die for! I can't keep my eyes off it... there is just so much detail on it.
Wow, I'm so happy I recieved Kristen's beautiful art pieces- I can't wait to put them somewhere special. I think I've got the perfect spot for that nest...
