Picking up Treasures along my walks

My friend Becky asked a question on my post from yesterday.
I thought I should answer her ;)
Her question was "Did you pick anything up on your walk??" 
She was referring to my walk around Michael's.
Not too many times I have left there without something in my hand, and yesterday was no exception ;)
I picked up 2 of each of these pretty flowers.
I didn't realize that the backs have a clip and a pin on them.
But I plan on using them for paper crafts ;)
I also picked up this sweet stamp set from Heidi Swapp.
I love these little stamp sets, perfect for my planner, greeting cards or Project 365.
When I went for my walk last night when we got out to the cottage.
I found this tiny bird nest on the side of the road, so I brought it home.
I think it may be from a Hummingbird. I checked out my bird book.
I put it with my other bird nests…..yes I collect them.
I have 6 from around the cottage.
I have one at home in a glass case. It even has a few unhatched eggs in it….but that is a whole other post :)

I hope you all had a creative day today :)
I got to create a bit today….even though I didn't have my basics with me, but again that is for another post, teehee.
We also did quite a bit of work at the cottage to close up.

  1. Love that stamp...especially the cherish each day. Something we all need to do...

    Thew birds nest of fabulous. It is so teensy. I have some very old birdhouses on my front porch and a linen pillow with a nest on it and they typography print that says NEST. It istd on my bench.
    I want to paint the bench black now so the pillow stand out...teeehee

    I am going to have to look more carefully when I walk as a nest with my birdhouse collection would look great

  2. Pretty! I enter Michael's at my own risk too. Funny on the "Did you pick anything?" :-)

  3. Love the flowers you picked on your walk :-) Amazing the pretty things that you can find on a leisurely stroll.

  4. Beautiful flowers nice stamp sent too, sad to have to sstart the process of closing the cottage though.

  5. What a perfect little stamp set!! I knew you wouldn't leave there empty handed ;) love the flowers too!!

  6. You just couldn't leave that stamp set behind - I understand, it's ok, you just need it didn't you LOL! Love the teeny tiny birds nest - so cute!

  7. Looks like a great multi-purpose stamp set, Tracy! :)

  8. That is the teeniest bird's nest I've ever seen!
