Hummingbird Nest With Eggs!!

What does a hummingbird nest and a 
cheese dome have in common?

 I guess I best start from the beginning.  This past Saturday
I made a trip to one of my favorite thrift stores and found
this cheese dome.  As a matter of fact I saw a few days
before when I was there and passed it up.  I kept
thinking there must be something I could do with
As you see it was for a reasonable price.

I really enjoy using cloches around my house to decorate
with.  This is just a small cloche so needed to find
something small enough to use with it.

This is my tea cup cloche I posted 
about previously.  I just love this 
as it is so me!! I love all things
Victorian and love my tea no 
matter if it is a soothing cup of hot tea or refreshing sweet tea for the summer.

 I remembered the small hummingbird nest, with eggs, I found
some years ago around our property.  It had long been abandoned 
and was just too precious to be left to the elements.  
So it came in the house and in the artificial tree in my
dinning room.

It looked like it would fit very well and it did.
 I located a small doily from my collection and placed it
on the base to add a little bit of pretty to my

The little nest, with eggs, fit just right on the base.

 Here are some views of the cute eggs.

I thought I remembered a bird some where around the 
house so went looking and found it in another 
display that would be just fine without it.

So the bird was added to the nest.

I know it's not a hummingbird but I think 
it works okay!

I have the nest, eggs, and a bird so looks to be finished.

Now to find a place to put it!!
I wanted it to be seen and not hidden away so looked
around the front room area.  I found a good
place by the front entry way.

This 1930's smoking stand needed a little something else
so decided this would be a good spot.

I'm pleased with how it turned out.  Now everyone
can enjoy this lovely little bit of God's creation as 
they visit my home.

Thanks for stopping by my little place and I hope you
have enjoyed your stay!!
