The Harvest Nest . . .




"Winter is an etching, Spring a watercolor,
Summer an oil painting and
Autumn a mosaic of them all."

"The Harvest Fairy"


Today I want to share something very special with you, a blog I happened across called 2 bags full
from another blog friend. Vicki's bags, they are full of yarn. Beautiful, scrumptious, incredible yarns that she
collects and uses to knit and decorate little nests. And these little nests of goodness are knitted with love
and are magical and last weekend my newest one called "The Harvest Nest" arrived.

I opened the box and inside was the nest wrapped by hand stamped tissue paper and the beautiful
handcrafted tag (above) was made by her friend Sue.

It's always fun to receive a package in the mail, but even more fun when there is so much attention to detail put into it.

I present to you, The Harvest nest . . .
I'll wait while you pick your mouth up off the floor. Isn't it just exquisite!!

She said that in designing the nest, she wanted to create a collection of yarns that would represent
a sunny walk in the woods on a crisp, cool Autumn day. And she did just that.

 And each nest came with three bejeweled acorns, the perfect touch.



She even nestled a small tin heart, between the glittery acorn and the sunflower . . .


More details . . .




Yarns, ribbons, and even beads . . . I like to display mine on a candle holder so that
the yarns dangle. I'm looking forward to using this on my Thanksgiving table!



And I even found the perfect house nest guest!!

Vicki said, "Because this is such a special nest - a nest that represents the bounty and of blessings
abundant", she is donating the charitable profits to a group of knitting women at her church. They will then
use the money towards buying more yarn to use in knitting things to keep others warm this winter.

Thank you Vicki, for sharing your time and talents with all of us. I hope you'll hop on over and check
out her blog (at the link I gave above).

 Hope your week is going well!

Love, Kim

It's exquisite and it does remind me of walking in the woods in Autumn - the colours & textures. I just wanted to reach out and touch it! How wonderful. I'd love one of those. Gorgeous.
