Our Nest

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.

You'll find me at the following party:


  1. Such a pretty vignette! I love your little birds.

  2. Oh what a wonderful little nest. Happy Easter.

  3. What a sweet spring vignette - don't you love Hobby Lobby? Congrats on a new grandbaby! I can't wait till I have one :) Hope you can stop by the enchanted oven to say hi.

  4. I remember well when my first granddaughter was four. It was the most wonderful time and I wished she could stay there for a while longer. Enjoy every day. The time is so fleeting. This year she graduates from high school and I don't know where it all went so quickly. Pretty spring vignette. Easter is so special.

  5. This is adorable! Grandchildren sound like so much fun. I'm a ways off from that, but I love to read about how others enjoy their kids/grandkids :)

  6. What a warm nest. Love the pillow. You are so lucky to have almost 5 grandchildren.

  7. You have been nominated for the Liebster Award. You can go to my blog for all the details

  8. Very pretty vignette. I love the muted colors of the eggs.
