I have had the idea for this arrangement in my head for a couple of years. Yesterday I finally brought it to fruition.
I adore nests and often think of all the labor and skill required for birds to build them. Whenever I see one that has fallen out of a tree I pick it up and add to my collection. What makes this nest even more special is that fibers from my angora goats, who have since passed over the rainbow bridge have been incorporated into the design.
This is Baby Dumpling. He was one of our naughtier goats but I adored him just the same.
I don’t have a miniature angora goat so the lamb will do for now. Perhaps in the future I will make one with some of the goat hair that I have saved. I could not seem to photograph a good close-up without including some sort of reflection from myself. In this picture it looks like the girl is holding the camera, which I kind of like.
If you would like to make a similiar arrangement I have some nests and a cabinet photo listed in my Etsy shop Metaphor Alchemy that would work well.
