I have given a little nod to bird life in my fancy old dining room frame. The sunlight lingers a little longer each day, and soon enough it will be time for nesting.
I like to surround myself with objects from nature in my own nest, and this beautiful little branch reminds me of the walk I took with my son and granddaughter in the snow one sunny day over the holidays.
I spotted a small acorn still clinging to a twig and my son climbed up and fetched it down for me.
A fresh lace drapes over wicker my garden stand.
I also found the sweetest roll of ribbon in recent weeks. The little bird tracks are similar to those found strewn across the open fields nearby from the Canadian Geese and Sand Hill Cranes that winter over.
A few farmhouse props get woven into the story too.
Anticipating the days ahead, while savoring the scents and sounds of the winter stage for yet awhile to come. . . .
What's new for you?
I hope you are enjoying the cozy pursuits of winter!
