This time of year, all smart critters are storing up for winter. A bit of gathering… of this and that, making a warm and cozy nest, food put aside and plenty of ‘blankets’.
I was cleaning out the garage again, today (this may go on awhile!) and found this old thingie with an adorable old nest and two very tiny eggs. I had this hung on my garage for a couple of years and the same birds came back for two years to make a home. The last year they left these eggs…so sad, but I had to keep it.
And had to share this other picture….today I took down a tree in the yard and found this white nest. Look at that soft cotton and the blue strings from one of those nasty blue tarps, I suppose it is not the prettiest nest…compared to the perfectly round one, next to it but…..it’s ok in my book. It has a free flow design, kinda’ artistic, I think.
So I got this strong nesting urge. I started working on a demo….
I tore apart this old seat cushion to salvage the….
wonderful cotton and ……
No, I am not building a nest! Although, at some later date (possibly after my death), they will wonder what I was thinking, when they come to clean out this house!
Just nesting a few craft materials away, for the winter. This old burlap has really got me ‘going’( I am so easy)…..can’t wait to start playing around with it! And the cotton, why it would make the most adorable little nests….I had better watch out, I had way too many mice in the house last year, no encouragement needed this year!
What are you ‘nesting’ away?
