Welcome to my nest...

I came across this huge jar today while shopping for something else. I couldn't resist. $12.99!



The entryway (is that one word or two?) needed some oomph. I thought this jar might be just the thing I needed to add some interest. I wanted something that people would notice right when they walked in, something that would draw them in to investigate.


So I just grabbed some things from around the house. That's a real birds nest in there, the magnifying glass is very old (hubby's great grandfather's I think). The post card is old and french, one of those things where the back is as pretty as the front...which side to display?!?). The little metal charms were given to me by students over the years.



Maybe this spring I'll fill it with dirt and put a little plant in there like a small terrerium. Or fill it with Easter eggs. Whatever the case, it's a keeper!

Love what you have in your jar. I have a similar large jar and I keep shells in it. for a time I used it to serve marinated mushrooms or such things at parties. I love my jar and if I ever find a fallen nest, that's what I will put in it.
