Spring Cloches...

                                                                          
In the spring
all the magic in the world begins again...
a rebirth...

(click photos to enlarge)

a time of hope...


I don't know of a much better example of hope
than a nest,


made of nothing but
bits of moss and twigs,

holding the future precariously
in the boughs of a tree...




A stack of tiny teacups
with an araucana chicken egg teetering on the top...


certainly speaks of hope
and balance...



feeling impatient for spring...
I shared this pie bird cloche a couple weeks ago,
if you missed it you can click here...

Tonight I am joining..
at A Stroll Thru Life

and
at Funky Junk Interiors

Thanks for stopping by...

All of these cloches are beautiful, Bella! I really love the one with the 3 teacups...that could not have been easy to do! And the pie birds are adorable. All of these definitely say spring! :-)

They are beautiful. I especially love the one with the teacups with the egg on top. ~~Sherry~~

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

Wow. The way you stacked those teacups is truly inspiring! You are so creative. Lovely post!

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

Hiya Bella! That first teacup has such a delicate and pretty pattern! And the color of that egg is so beautiful. It's just about the same green hue in the tiny cups. Seeing your reflected chandy is a nice touch too! I hope it's really turning to spring for you now. The willows have popped their buds here. The first leafing trees around here. So exciting!

Hi Bella,
What a perfect metaphor for the hope and rebirth of spring; as nest!
I love the way you display things in your cloches. I still keep looking for one for myself, but I haven't found one that I like.I love the tall height of yours with the pretty finial.
