We'll Call'em Palmer Nests...

n"Finding the Perfect Home"
Copyright Michelle L. Palmer

My little feathered friend selected the nest
with the Chartreuse colored pencil...
A favorite color each Spring!

After requests for more chicks in nests...
and my natural nest supply depleted~
I needed to come up with a nest design that I could
make that is reasonably priced...realistic...
easy on my wrists...the can hold up for years!
BINGO!
I've needle felted a few different materials together...
My hands are not numb...
It looks sweet sitting next to my personal BIRD-MADE
nest collection...and it didn't cost much to make!


Put a little twig of my pussy willow tree along the edge...


A few feathers from the grasses under our feeders...


Ordinary supplies...a bag of Spanish Moss for $2.
and a bag of Natural Floral Moss for $2.

I'll be adding all sorts of goodies to my nests...
I have LOADS of pencil nubs that I can't toss...
Vintage papers will be woven in...
Ooooooh the fun is just beginning!
We'll call them Palmer Nests!

This sweet "Suzie" bird & nest will be in my
Etsy shop this morning...and some empty nests
will be coming soon!

Thanks so much for stopping by...
Hope your day is wonderful~

Oh! Oh! Oh! This is so SPECIAL and UNIQUE, Michelle! What a tiny little treasure. I like the blotches of chartreuse too. One of my favorite colors of crayons when I was little. Still is!
Think of all the things you can tuck into these creations, just like birds do! Sparkly threads even! Wow!
Am I giving you more ideas?! LOL!

Michelle,
WOW! Your nest is so wonderful! And how clever!
Isn't if fun to make nests? There's just something about it, no matter what you use to make them.

I'm working on some new ones myself, but not felted. ( a little on the Victorian foo foo side, well sort of). =0)

Blessings as you continue to create,
Barbara Jean
