Most recently, I went about a little craft project that I thought was worth sharing: I made my own little bird's nest.
I got some quail eggs at the Wychwood Barns farmer's market recently, and while most of them went to a delicious snack (mini Scotch Eggs! nomnomnom) I reserved a few for crafting.
(Don't worry, didn't waste the eggs. I poked holes in the ends of a few with a small nail and blew them out, cooking the eggs into a scramble and leaving three near-perfect empty shells for my craft.)
Quail eggs are so cute and tiny.
Why make a bird's nest? I dunno. 'Cause they're cute? And not all of us are lucky enough to come across such things in nature. I like the look of found objects, but don't always find the ones I want, so this is a good solution. I plan to make my own nest tonight and to put the three little quail's eggs inside. Then, I'll find a home for it amid the rest of my useless (but cute) clutter.
And it'll look good. I'm sure of it.
