Spring captured in a homemade apothecary jar
For under $10, I made a cute apothecary jar with a nest and eggs, with an accompanying blue bird!

The tag reads "A Gift of Spring."

I had a blue parakeet, so anything with cute little blue birds is special to me (and my favorite color is shiny light blue - just like the eggs!)

The bird is optional. The one used came from Dollar Tree and was tan with sand glued to it. It was pretty horrid before I painted it!
