‘Nesting’ from 2 Bags Full….

Over a year ago, I saw a post (forgive me that I can’t remember where) about a lady who creates and sells gorgeous nests for your home.  I immediately contacted her hoping to place an order.  Victoria graciously wrote me back and said she would place me on a waiting list.  And just before Christmas I received an email that the creation of my nest was about to begin.  I asked her to add as much white ribbon as possible so that my nest could match the great room décor ~ it couldn’t have turned out more perfect!  The package arrived in the mail just the other day and I am ecstatic to finally share these photo’s with you!

It now sits in the great room vignette behind the cottage couch! Isn’t it just lovely?

Please visit Victoria Etsy Shop and see her beautiful listings ~ 017and perhaps you’d like to get on the waiting list for a nest of your own! I’ve shared her business card below as well!  I do encourage you to peek over at her blog to read more about the creations of her hand created nests.

To see what I am linking to this week – please check my “Cottage Links” label…xoxo, tracie

Hi Tracie... oooh, I own three of Vicki's nests!... two darling green ones and one special shorebird nest whose proceeds went to help rescue injured shorebirds... I love all of Vicki's nests... so happy you got one!... I will email you the link to the post I did about mine on my blog last year... xoxo Julie Marie

Hi Sweet Tracie-
You've displayed your nest beautifully and your pictures are great! Thank you for sharing my latest nest creation with all of your friends. You are a lucky girl-- I won't even be sharing this nest on my own blog until late spring! You really do own the very first shabby chic nest!

You're friends have been visiting me and already my list is growing for my next nesting-- and I have not even shared it with my blogging friends yet- yikes!!

Enjoy the nest Tracie- it was my pleasure to make it special for you--
Xoxo,
Vicki

Vicki's nest truly are a labor of love. She puts in so many hours into each one. I have wanted to order one also but know how backed up she is. She's so sweet she keeps cranking them out.

love yours!!! all white

I have one of Victoria's nests, too! Aren't they so soft and beautiful? I remember being so ecstatic when my name came up on the list {about two years ago now}. I have mine displayed on a pot in a birdcage I have. Yours turned out so pretty with your colors!
