Our next "nesting" season will begin in August. Until then I am going to ~~~
(sit by the pool, visit the grand baby, read some great books, cook for my husband!, mow lots of grass (love that!), knit something besides a bird nest,~~~)

elvira pajarola said...

.....I am convinced my sweet birds in the woods around the house wouldn't build any nests anymore and just "sit" in one of your

M A G N I F I C I E N T

colourfull , soft and luxourious nests......; they would spread the voice and I would have to order soooo many precious little nests made by you...!!!!!....(can you imagine how long would be this list...??)

Cara Vicky, enjoy your time in the garden ; I will do so too.......and see you soon!
have a sunny and happy week!!!!
ciao ciao elvira

myriamkreativ said...

Hi my dear Vicki,
yes of course I have planned something for summer.... not only one thing 100s... eating ice cream every day, sipping frosted latte every day, reading beside the swimming pool etc. etc.
And in August we will go to Andalucia having a fabolous holiday I hope. The weather was very hot the last 3 days but now there are heavy clouds hanging in the sky and I thing we will have lots of rain in the next time uaaaah. Wish you a wonderful week Hugs Myriam

Bumpkin Bears said...

oooh you deserve a huge well done for finishing all those nests. You are so kind to give a nest away, I would love to give this pretty nest a home. I have had a black bird making a wonderful nest in my garden, but I think it was too near the patio and although I was always so quiet I think she decided to nest elsewhere :( I'm too off on travels (to Andalucia in Spain) in a few days, I hope your trip goes well to the gallery, I'm sure they will love them. Catherine xx

Fearless Nester said...

Oh Vicki that is so exciting to hear about your nests being headed for a gallery! Everyone that sees them falls right in love with them (I've shown several people your images of them.) I have a feeling you'll be knitting your poor fingers to the bone once they hit that gallery! And what sweet little birds you found to pair them with. Enjoy your trip and yes, please please enter me into the hat to have a chance to win one of these exquisite works of art! ~Lili

Margaret said...

mybabyjohn said...

I am a new follower and have posted a blog about your site and your contest. I feel a little greedy entering your contest as I have the priviledge of watching a pair of cardinals building their own nest just outside my living room window. Your little, orphan nest is so beautiful though, that I can't resist. Please enter me in your contest.

Gifts of Serendipity said...

A little birdy told me that there was a special place to play so I wandered over to 'Two Bags Full' today.
Imagine my great wonder when I discovered too,
That Vicki wanted a new home for some little eggs [Woohoo!].
I think I have the perfect place, it's filled with light and love. Your little friends would be safe and warm and given lots of Aussie love.

Felicity

PS I have just stumbled upon your lovely site and would love a chance to win a nest [if you go to my blog you'll see why the nest would be special and also that I've included a button to your giveaway!].

I am totally inspired by your work, I have always loved yarns and remember dying them all sorts of colours when I was at textile college, I had mislayed this love a wee bit and your posts always bring this back to me. How I would love to just sit next to you in your yarn room and gaze how you create, oh what fun that would be :) Now to create a special time machine so I can pop over for a cup of tea and craft time :) In the meantime a chance to win a precious nest will keep me going.

Your idea for using the yarn bits was such genius! What beautiful, beautiful nests you create. I'm not even a knitter and you make me want a pile of yarn, and maybe a sheep or two. And please tell your sweet gardener that I'm very jealous of his peonies, they won't grow this far down south for me.

Kelly

Kelly Mac said...

Your use of little bits is pure genius! What beautiful, beautiful nests you've created. I'd love to have one. I'll mention the giveaway on my blog. I don't even knit and you've made me want a yarn pile, and maybe even a sheep or two. And please tell your sweet gardener that I'm jealous of his peonies, I can't get them to grow this far south.

Hi, I just love your bird nests. I have collected bird nests for years. I paid my kids 50 cents for each one they found for me. I would put them in the branches of my Christmas tree. Each nest has its' own pair of mushroom birds. Eagles, owls, cardinals & more. This nest would make a lovely addition.
Thanks - dearde227@yahoo.com

Susan said...

Wow, Vicki, you sure have gotten a good turn out for your nest giveaway. You must be please and excited about that. I'm tossing in my name again for a chance to win.

I had to leave another post - I am so taken with your beautiful nest - it is amazing as I read about them that there are so many different fibers in just one nest - no wonder they are so beautiful - By the way - I like your garden as well - my husband helps me with mine too- isn't it fun :)
Take Care
Thank you for such generosity
Good Luck to all :)

Hi Vicki ~ I'm leaving another comment for another chance to win your beautiful nest. Did i mention that my b'day was Friday the 2nd, and you're drawing a name on the 3rd? Wouldn't that be just the most special birthday gift? Whisper that in Maddy's ear since she's in charge. :)

Deb said...

Vicki, I have enjoyed your blog while I have been recuperating from surgery...in the hospital for 6 days and now home for 2 weeks...4 weeks more before I'll be back to normal. It's hard because I'm a gardening person...I miss my flowers outside. But viewing the beautiful pictures on your blog certainly helps me feel a part of the outdoors. Enter my name again for your beautiful nest.

Patty C. said...

Thia is sooooooo much fun - I have gone way beyond the nest - I just like entering - lol

Your blog is awesome
Your nest is beautiful
I have way to much time on my hands this weekend :)

It's raining here so I am entering again - I can't go outside to work in my garden :)

Patty C. said...

Susan said...

Oh dear, I haven't entered in a couple of days... It's getting close. The anticipation is just awful! Fingers are seriously cramped from crossing them.

Hope you're doing very well, Vicki.

Oh my god I just discovered your blog and those beautiful nests. As I sit here with my coffee watching the birds feed at my bird feeds in the morning I am in wonder at their beauty and grace. And now with spring, their colors.

Your nests reflect that beauty.

Lucky are the people who can bring one of these nests into their home.
