Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems. This poem by Rainer Maria Rilke is written inside this unique “nest”ing box. If anything resounds the spirit of Spring it is the birds busily building nests and laying eggs. It is always such a joy to find a nest in a tree outside a window or hidden within a hedge. Here you can give a gift of a nest hidden within this canvas “card.”

This would be a great gift for Mother’s Day and you can even slip in a picture of you and your Mother from "days gone by" for a fun rememberances. It also would make a sweet Birthday card/gift, a Get Well wish, a Thinking of You thought, a Valentines Day gift, or just a Joyous Spring greeting. Or, maybe you would like to have this for yourself as a peaceful display on your table throughout the season.

The card is made of two 5 X 7 stretched canvases over wood hinged together. They are painted with acrylic paints and gold and silver ink dyes and gold crackle paint. Burlap trims the outside edge along the spine. The inside is painted the same and is stamped. Colorful bird feathers and a vintage “nest” print fill the left side. Along the left side the poem is attached. The nest is tucked into the right side. Two polymere eggs are inside along with tree moss and downy feathers. Cut out lace and a vintage bird nursery block transfer are attached to the back side.

The box can be closed or displayed open. Either way it is sure to bring a bit of Spring’s joy into your heart.
