Wonderful Spring!!!

This is what I saw as we were driving out of the driveway for lunch...
"stop the car', I said to Cliff!!

I knew from my childhood that it was a robin's egg
that had fallen out of a nest
during a windy day.

I had to place it in an old bird's nest that I keep in the garden house
along with my McCoy Pottery collection...

but I knew it needed to be close to my heart for a few days for me to look 
at and love.

so for now, it stays in my kitchen window
with the sea shells and mini sea turtle!!

my readers!!



  1. I think they are the prettiest eggs around. How special to have it whole after a fall from the nest.

  2. Aww,what a pretty egg, sorry the Mom lost it but I know you will love it for her

  3. Your header is awesome! I love it. You did a great job.

    I like the robin egg in the nest too. :o)

  4. Love the McCoy pottery!! My prize possession: a yellow turtle planter from my mom and sister last year for my birthday got broken. I was so sad. Love the blue egg.

  5. It looks so entrancing there in the window......

    You do have that special touch for putting things together that make one smile.......

  6. I would have done the same thing. It's so sad to see eggs on the ground. =(

  7. What a treasure! Your robin's egg is simply beautiful. I'd keep it close too.

  8. Will it survive and hatch - oh I do hope so!! FIngers crossed!

  9. Hi Kathyrn, Thanks for visiting my blog. Is that lemon thyme I see in your planter? I love the smell of it. Is that flower pincushion? I have one planted and just bought another today. Looks like you are quite a quilter! Come see me again! Nancy at Cozy Thyme Cottage

  10. Awwwwww... do you think that it will hatch? It loooks cute in the window.

  11. Hello Kathryn,

    I have never seen one of those eggs before. Such a pretty colour. Looks great in your old nest.
    Happy days.

  12. Love your new blog design!!!!
