Bird's Nest Spoon

Good Morning!
I want to share this adorable Bird's Nest on a spoon easel.  Isn't it cute?

I had Barbara Jean over at Treasures from the Heart make it for my Mom's 83rd birthday.

Of course Mom loved it!
We were lucky enough to visit Barb's shop in Eugene, OR recently and these are some little treasures I found there.  I just love little things!  The book I've had for years but all else I got at Barb's.

Her tea bag roses and baby shoes are wonderful.  She has great tutorials for both of these on her blog.  I also couldn't pass up the finial, small frame and the old thread box.

And then we have a tiny jar of buttons!  A must have for me!
Mom and I had such fun that day. Good memories. These little gems are just a small portion of our treasures.  In fact we filled up the entire back portion of the Jeep and it was only the beginning of our trip.
I can't wait to go back!  Walking into Barb's shop is like taking a step back in time. 
Pure pleasure!

Hi Karen,
Just had to tell you that I'm going to see Barb tomorrow! I can't wait! I met her through my blog and she seems like she is just the sweetest. We are going to make the lace flowers. I am going to try to make those tea roses too. I just love them. And that spoon nest? Isn't that the cutest? I bet your mom just loved that. Thanks for sharing your beautiful things.
Have a great week!
