Look what came in the mail today!!!

When I went to the mailbox this morning I found the package I had been waiting for. It is from Vicki at couldn't wait to open the box for I knew what was inside but I didn't know how beautiful it would be.

She had it wrapped and with a beautiful handmade hang tag.

The paper had birds nest all over it, just a hint of what was to come.

She had paper stuffed inside so the nest would not be crushed and the little eggs would not be broken

Once it was out of the packing all I had to do was fluff it up just a little.

The details are so beautiful. It had 2 little blue eggs and a lot of nesting material. Vicki said it would be "to die for" and it is.

The beauty almost took my breath away...... I just couldn't wait to find that special place to put it so that everyone who came in would see it. First I tried the curio cabinet but decided that it would not be seen there unless I keep the light on all the time so next I tried the dining room table. What do you think?

I put it on a ceramic cake plate and it almost covered the entire top.

Thank you Vicki. I will think of you everytime I pass by. It is just a beautiful breath of spring right in the middle of my dining room table. Vicki you are the greatest.

Hope everyone has a blessed day.
