nest...

{Nest}:
1. A container or shelter made by a bird out of twigs, grass or other material to hold its eggs and young
2. A place affording snug refuge or lodging; a home

I love this word. It represents everything to me.
Since I love it so much, I decided that it would be the theme for my next banner class...
Lots of platinum glitter on chipboard frames. Lace, lots and lots of different pieces, some vintage, some new. I totally dug through my stash for this one- some of these I've had for more than 30 years!  
Two different papers, one a muted stripe, the other a soft ivory/cream lace print. Old book paper for the backside of each pennant and yards and yards of hand-dyed crinkled seam binding to tie it all together. God, how I love to dye seam binding!
And of course, we needed a nest.
A nest made of old book paper and sheet music, with a pretty little bird wearing a sparkly crown tops it all off.
I hope the girls like it!
