Empty nest

July 22, 2011

Our chicks have flown and we do indeed have an empty nest, it happened gradually; there was a migration to London then Australia then London again and now the chicks have their own nests although it has to be said that these chicks have continued to store a fair amount of their fashion feathers and twigs back in the original nest. Maybe it was in the spirit of the fledglings flying the nest that made me think of making some birds as part of our Easter decorations this year. I tracked down a pattern at Martha Stewart, downloaded paper from Designer Digitals, printed out the bird pattern on double-sided patterned paper, cut them out and that was that! After Easter I loved the little birds so much I moved them to the hall and hung them on some twigs in front of our mirror, I'm also considering making some more in stronger colours for autumn or maybe using the card covers of old magazines for a graphic look or recycling old christmas cards for winter. Go on, give it a go!
