I took these at the same time. The top one I took outside...it was 7:00 am, the bottom one I took inside. Not sure which one to use!! Let me tell you about this one. The base is a handcrafted piece of pottery. I love the green color! I was going through my vintage millinery flowers and came across a whole hat!! I hadn't used any of it, Not sure how that happened. Well, I immediately tore it apart. The tag said I paid $2.50, what a deal! Ok, here is where the fun came in...I took the netting which was stiff and soaked it until it became pliable and cut out a circle, put it in a bowl and hit it with the hair dryer until it was set...it made the perfect little nest!!! How neat is that!!! It goes perfect with the base. I aged the bird...(oh...I still see the white pin, I'll go get that off!!) I used my beloved Glimmer Mist to age the rayon ribbon. How do you like that tag! I spritzed it with my GM is shimmers, after it was dry I pen and inked the nest and wording. The button is embedded in an aged green sealing wax.
What would my post be like without a photo of my kitties. They are both sharing the Penthouse, of course one is lounging on the "Rooftop" The one inside the Penthouse is usually banned to the basement condo. So today is a "good" day. lol
