Where Every Picture Tells A Story...Sometimes A Very Blurry One!
Thursday, February 28, 2013
Our 4-year-old granddaughter Lily is all into pink and sparkles. On a trip to Hobby Lobby last week, I found a few things to put together a fairy-type nest that reminded me of her.
My mother-in-law rode shotgun and we left the guys at home. We were on a mission.
Here's a few things I found at Hobby Lobby to build a nest.
The sparkly colorful eggs tied with a shimmery pink ribbon reminded me so much of Lily. I decided to use the bag the eggs came in under the nesting material. This meant I didn't need as much of the nesting material, and I would be able to find the bag when I was putting Easter decor away! Yeah...I'm a little forgetful. I even tied the ribbon to the top of the cloche to pretty it up.
The bag of eggs was originally around $5.60, but the Easter decor was 40% off. The bag of nesting material was $2.47, but was 50% off in the floral department. I only used about half the bag.
All the rest of the items I had on hand...I used two birds, an artificial nest, a tarnished silver tray, and a small glass cloche.
I got a kick out of the pictures when I noticed the "Our Nest" pillow on the couch was right behind the Easter egg/nest vignette.
Here's pictures of the pillow up close. This is a new favorite I bought at a home and garden shop in McKenney TX last month.
Only one week from today our fifth grandbaby, a second girl, will be born! Hope the Easter Bunny brings you such a special delivery.
