Nesting and a Thoughts of Home on Thursday Winner

I love nests and nesting and birds.
They are all so sweet and symbolic of new beginnings, life, nature, and home.
Here are just a few of the nests I've loved before with links to some of the stories that go with them. :)



This was a few days later...




I know you are fellow nesters too. Glad to be in such good company. 

And now for the winner of the TOHOT #2 drawing chosen by 
a random number generator...................



Sure hope you'll link up with TOHOT #3 tomorrow and show us what's going on at your nest.

These are wonderful -- so fun to see the nests today as we are expecting a big snow storm and our fake-spring this week (50s!) will be a thing of the past! But it's getting time to pull out my birds, nests and all the good things of spring -- just to force it a bit!

Must get linked!

Such a lovely place to "nest" this morning, Stacey.
You inquired about my lipstick. The one featured on my post is sheer and natural. It needed to be reapplied after eating. It stays on pretty well after sipping.
Thanks for popping in to visit!

What lovely visions of Spring! Congratulations to the winner. That magazine is one of my favorites and I'm looking at it right now in fact ;)

The weather has done a 180 here and it's Spring as far as the flowers are concerned. I'm wondering if we'll get an April snow this year. I hope so!
