Spring Time Nest Bell Jar

For centuries, European and American gardeners used bell-shaped glass covers to protect delicate plants from harsh weather. This Bell Jar I purchased from
Williams-Sonoma complete with a bird’s nest filled with hand-painted faux eggs, downy feathers, twigs, flowers and greenery. It real adds a little touch of spring to our home. Since Mr.K doesn't get out to much I put It right where he could see It to brighten up his day. Both Mr.K and I have terrible allergies so I can't bring any flowers In so I thought this would be a great substitute.

I have some new designs I will be listing In my Etsy shop the next couple of days. I've been working diligently with my assistant " Maggie" If you remember her, Maggie the manniquinn we haven't click just yet, but we will.

Have a grand Wednesday,
