Happy Birthday Barbe

It started with this beautiful nest made of twigs and pussy willow branches I found at Soergel's, a local farm that has a great garden gift area. The nest was nice and deep...a perfect place to "plant".I printed out these pictures (in black and white) of my grandnieces, my sister's granddaughters. Natalie, Emily, Libby, and Fiona were all given wings, their bodies fortified with wire and placed in the nest. Moss covered the floral foam, wire and feet. A tag was made...Happy Birthday Barbe...I hope you like the nest of fairy girls I've sent!

Joyce,
These are incredible!!! I can't believe you found the PERFECT nest that was so deep. And the way you arranged them is perfectly charming.
Did you already have these photos or did you have them pose just for this precious gift?
Kudos to you my friend.
And many thanks for the sweet compliments on my Header. : )
