A beautiful hand knitted woodland nest, a gift from the hugely talented Vicki who's blog 2 Bags Full is a wonderful place to spend some time.
There you will find more beautiful nests such as this one.
You may remember that I was able to acquire the last 2011 Christmas nest last December, so lucky as the waiting lists for Vicki's nests are very looooong!
Vicki also shares her love of travel on her blog, she just returned from a cruise and her photographs are always amazing.
However, whilst Vicki and her husband were away a community very close to theirs at home was almost completely destroyed by the terrible hurricanes which ripped through the area causing unbelievable devastation.
You can read more about what happened, on Vicki's blog, by clicking here.
As I did at Christmas time I created a small vignette of the nest alongside my vintage copy of Diary Of An Edwardian Lady.
As you can see the illustrated pages for May are perfect with the nest, how talented Vicki is and Edith Holden, the author and artist of DOAEL, was.
