Not another cheeseball...its a Nest!

Not another cheeseball...it's a Nest!

So, I pulled this little pretty together a while back (more spring time feel than winter!) -- $2.00 wooden cheese ball tray with cool glass dome (I always admire the glass domes in the antique and vintage stores; guess they were used for covering bulbs/flowers in bad weather, today they're VERY pricey) -- and assembled a nest with some bits n pieces found in nature and on my studio floor (seed pearls, letters, lint, thread...). 

the tag to go with was assembled out of a tea bag wrapper and other everyday stuff too.  Paint and some pretty scrapbook paper make the boring wood tray a more interesting stage. 

This is a sickness...you don't want to throw away ANYTHING!?!!

Be well,

Thanks for sharing!

Love your post. Thanks for sharing.
