NEST



Perhaps a cuckoo's nest?  Supposedly, Native Americans learned basketry from watching birds make their nests.  It was interesting to make while waiting for my crops to bear and reading GONE GIRL.  Summer fun.

  1. Oooh, how did you like Gone Girl?! I've been wanting to read it.

    1. Kirsten, I couldn't get into it at first; had to keep re-reading what I'd read. Then, I couldn't put it down. It is the first fiction I've read in years, I think, so maybe, I'll try another. I bought The Paris Wife, about Hemingway's wife, in Paris, so maybe I'll read that next.

  2. Now that is unique! I'm reading Faith Bass Darling's Last Garage Sale. So far, so good.

  5. Dear Donna - great nest (looks like used some recycled bits - good for you). Hope your garden is growing well - mine is since we have received so much needed rain. Have a great Fourth of JUly - hope you are learning to play that Ukle for your hubby's birthday. Take care.

  6. I love your basket! I read Gone Girl and enjoyed it. I'm now reading the The Art of Hearing Heartbeats.

  7. That is a pretty nest you created, and I like to get ideas for books to read, so that is a good recommendation for Gone Girl. I liked Her Royal Spyness by Rhys Bowen and The Code of the Woosters by P.G. Wodehouse (funny).

    1. Thank you Terra. And, I always love book recommendations as there is nothing worse than wasting time on a boring book.

  11. I love it! I love nests anyway but this is enchanting! I looks so wonderful!!!
    I want to make one but I have a feeling that if I went for it ... it wouldn't look anything like a nest!

    I'm finally making it around to blogs again. Crazy summer. Good but crazy!
    Hope you are enjoying the season! I am sitting in front of a fan right now. :)
