Nothing tells you Spring is here more than when you start hearing the birds singing...such a lovely sound! The other day I went to get into my car and I almost stepped on this little bird's nest that had landed next to my car. At first glance I thought it was just a bunch of twigs bundled up like a tumble-weed so I was going to simply toss it in the trash. Then upon closer inspection, I realized that it was a perfectly formed birds nest. Obviously it had been abandoned last winter and with all the windy weather we've been having it was blown out of a nearby tree. So I brought it inside and placed it on my bookshelf in a small iron chair. If you look really close, you can see some green, plastic grass...you know...like the fake Easter grass that you fill your kids baskets with? The really annoying kind that you find yourself vacuuming up for months after Easter!
Since it's the first of Spring and it's Mosaic Monday, I thought I'd make a simple photo mosaic of my pretty, little birds nest. It makes me smile every time I walk by it ;)
Mail Art from wonderful new blog friends also makes me smile...
On Saturday, I received the most adorable mail art from a new friend, Karen, who has left some really sweet comments on my blog and who I have since, been conversing with via email. Karen doesn't have a blog of her own as yet...or I'd send you all on over ;)
How sweet is this envelope and her "memo" and the "used library cards" she sent me for my collage art projects? I'm also going to save the envelope and use it in an altered album...a travel album of course! Thanks so much Karen...I really appreciate you thinking of me and all your time and energy in putting this together for me.
Hope everyone is have a wonderful start for Spring and for this Mosaic Monday.
