Is it Spring yet ???

Please tell me it is just around the corner!
 I am soooooooo ready for Spring this year...are you?

Aren't these nests just beautiful? I picked up this container full at an antique store of
all places!! I would love to know the story behind this collection. I know the cashier
that day thought I was absolutely cracked when I took these up to pay for them,
but that is okay. I am used to people thinking I am a bit strange. lol!

If it can't be Spring outside yet at least it can be inside. I made this burlap banner a week or
so ago. Lighting here is horrible today and I had to use my flash, but at least you get the

I even clipped a little fake nest to the banner.  If all my wishing will make Spring arrive
faster, then it should be here tomorrow!!  If only....:)
