Inspired by...Nature

by Patty Lakinsmith

"Nest Egg Watching" by Peylu.  I own this print and look at it every day.  I love Peylu's work, and this one is especially meaningful to me now.

 “It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.”
  
- C.S. Lewis

 As usual I'm trying to weave some sort of meaning out of all of the threads in my life at once, and now that our chickens have started laying eggs, I'm consumed with thoughts about hatching, eggs, containers, incubation, and femininity, and I know from past experience when this happens it's bound to make its way into my work.

Until I hatch my own nest related ideas, enjoy these beautiful, inspired finds on Etsy, and have a beautiful day.

Excellent, cozy choices. We'll be moving into our new home shortly and the nest building will begin for us. It will be exciting to see your experience turned into artwork!
