If the Shoe Fits

Please let me introduce to you Ms. Camille. She is so chic with her pretty tawny brown feathers and smattering of rusty orange bling bling. She has been flittering and flying up and down Avenue des Champs-Elysees and it's wonderful Parisian side streets just looking for the perfect Spring nesting spot.


Finding the perfect spot for her maison in a tres chic high heeled shoe covered in vintage French school book paper pages, with just the perfect amount of time worn patina.













Trimmed in black with a perky bow it's the perfect place to lay her one, very beautiful, precious, multi-faceted glass egg for which she refers to as her vintage perfume bottle stopper.




Her nest, of course, is the real thing; created from twigs gathered from the grand boulevard of the City of Lights. Bits of fluff and paper from the nearby launderette and lush green moss from the local fleuriste are just the perfect commodities for a soft comfy lining.



Just one of the tweet items being created for you in The Vintage Nest studio. I have used a real bird's fallen nest collected from my yard over the winter. Shoe measures approx. 11" long and 2-1/2" wide. A sweet whimsical display piece and charming way to preserve nature's gifts.



I was so excited about the arrival of Spring arriving soon and the change over to day light savings time that I redid my front porch yesterday with my yard bunnies and roses welcome sign. Now it's snowing....our first snowfall of the season....due to get 6-10 inches....lol...it figures.

Oh what a perfect place for a sweet little bird to nest. The shoe is divine, I could move in there myself....well if I was a little birdy!

Dearie Dear Lynn,
Your quote of the week just hit me in the heart. If I am the only Bible people read I better tighten my bindings and regilt the page edges. And I hope all my content is rated "G" for general audiences. What a quote, whew!!!!
BTW I joined a new little mall called "French Cupboard" Check it out sometime, Polly is really nice. And there's a discount for Shabbylaners.
Smoochies,
Theresa @ Cottage Violets

Lynn,
This is absolutely gorgeous. You would have loved where I went yesterday. The shop is called Nesting On Main, and everything in there is about birds. I just love this idea, you are so clever.

Christine said...

Very creative and different. I love the collage work on the shoe. Your little lady bird is so chic and elegant. We don't have any pretty birds yet up north, other than our cardinals right now. The robins will be home soon and, hopefully, spring will be here soon as well.

Happy Day!

Nana Net said...

How absolutely adorable! :) It just screams....spring! You are so creative and I love looking at all the delightful treats that you make.
Maybe I should have swapped out our seasonal decor and we might have had more than just flurries on Sunday. Can you believe all that snow went to middle and south Alabama aand left us in North Alabama quite jealous!
Enjoy your countdown to spring and have a lovely week,
Jennifer
