Shabby Chic Nest From 2 Bags Full

I am so in love with my shabby chic nest from 2 Bags Full

Textile artist Victoria Boster uses beautiful yarns and
 vintage laces and ribbons to create these lovely nests
Mine arrived last week and you can't imagine 
how excited I was to receive it

I have it on the antique watch makers cabinet in the great room
along side a new mercury glass lamp 

I love the lamp too -
it has a crown, French script, and wire netting

Of course, there are some tattered books
And my drying rack from Resurrect Antiques
holding vintage old blue and white cups

Resurrect Antiques just moved to a new location
make sure to check it out - use the link above

It seems to lighten the  heavy feel of this vignette,
don't you think?

Look at the  individual ribbons, laces, and yarns
Aren't they simply gorgeous?

 Nestled safely inside, in a fluff of feathers, are two tiny wooden eggs

Oh yes,  the package arrived with this sweet bird attached

Thank you Vicki...I LOVE IT!!!

Here are more of Vicki's marvelous creations
I had the choice of ordering the Woodland Nest or...

...the Shabby Chic Nest
Vicki uses vintage ribbons and laces from her precious mother's collection
I am such a sentimentalist that I had to have this one

It is also possible to send her special ribbons
and laces that you have that you want included
Unfortunately, I didn't do it, even though
she emailed me when it was time
 What was I thinking!!!
I think I will tuck in a couple of special things myself

Limited Edition - Oct. 2010  Shorebird Nest

Limited Edition - August 2011, Twinkle, Twinkle Nest

Partridge Nest - Limited Edition Nov. 2011

The Children's Nest
benefiting  the Hoop's Family Children's Hospital
December 2012

Vicki will be making more of the
Shabby Chic Nests & Woodland Nest
this fall, but you HAVE to be on the list
So, if you would love to own one of these beautiful nests,
you need to email her.
