Once the leaves had fallen from the maple trees out front, I saw a beautiful bird's nest that was built around a tree limb rather than sitting in a more comfortable crook of the tree. I carefully pulled down the nest and put it on the back porch.
A week later, my oldest daughter was on the back porch with me and mentioned how cool the heart shaped bird's nest was. I was surprised and took a second look at the nest. Sure enough, it was in the shape of a heart. What a coincidence! I love finding items in nature that inspire me.
That was all it took. I recalled that I had been given a beautiful pink heart shaped crystal paperweight from my friend Tara. I had an idea. I went to my windowed coffee table(a previous post), and pulled out the crystal. It fit perfectly in the nest.
Sitting it in an old silver plated heart shaped tray added a bit of glitz to it.
The shabby foyer table welcomes all who entered in through the front door for the holiday.
