The Nest Is Best!

This is a quick little craft that took me no time.

It started with a vintage white ironstone Johnson Brothers gravy boat and attached oval saucer. NOTE: This saucer was attached by the manufacturer and can not be removed.

I really loved the lines and color of this piece and instead of selling it in my booth, I decided to make it into...

 a sweet nesting
 complete with eggs.

All I had to do was put a dab of hot glue to hold the nest in. I also hot glued the eggs in. Then added the vinyl word, NEST.
I used a standard plate hanger that allowed me to hang it on the wall. It really 'pops' against my red walls. Now don't you think the nest is best?
