Robin's eggs from Gianna Rose: "Our classic robin's eggs are boxed and nestled in a porcelain bowl and presented in letterpress printed, iridescent blue box. This vegetable based, french-milled soap is imbued with the soothing extracts of chamomile and meadowsweet." Set of 3 with porcelain dish, $32 from Fine Gift Soaps.
Thank you Robin, very realistic these eggs, I love that color.
Me too! I want them without the dish but can’t find them…they were here but out of stock:
This week’s lemmings have been so beautifully coordinated with the CP. And they get double points, because they are lemmings!
(and now I wish I’d thought to wear one of my own lemmings)
Those are so pretty. Might not even use them – just leave them out to look at.
That is the problem with pretty guest soaps…it’s a shame to use them
This lemming post brought up a memory of my dad taking me up on a ladder to see a real robin’s next that was tucked in behind our downspout. I still remember being amazed at how tiny those eggs were.
The robin’s eggs are very beautiful. I’d be afraid to use the soaps and mess them up, but I’d admire how lovely they are. Fortunately, I can do that in the photo.
I’ve planted many shrubs (some of which became small trees) and flowers to attract birds. It’s been very successful from the sound of it. I hear a lot of chirping when I go by certain bushes. I planted the sweet briar rose for me, but apparently it provides good shelter. It’s huge and thorny as heck, and we’ve seen nests in there in previous winters, after the leaves drop. I think we’ve got several catbird nests as well. When I go by there, it’s more a mewing sound than a chirping sound, but it’s the same idea.
We have been almost *too* successful! Now I have to find a way to keep them living happily in the bushes but not pooping all over my porch furniture.
The way our driveway and parking area at the top of it is, I end up parking under a dogwood tree. That’s been there for a long time, and is festooned with bittersweet and wild grape vines, and has a lot of brush around the base, as well. My car ends up quite messy sometimes. It’s better than when we had several chokecherry trees by the driveway, though.
We’ve had small birds build nests in the hanging baskets of spider plants that are at the front edge of the porch in the summer, but they’re not disruptive. We enjoy watching birds at the feeders in winter. I’m glad we’ve created a backyard habitat that supports a number of kinds of birds. We co-exist pretty well with them. I just need to put a tarp on my car or something!
