One of my most treasured objects is an old bird's nest I found, hiding behind a dead blackberry bush in my backyard. I left it there for a few weeks, checking in on it, gingerly awaiting a mama bird to reclaim her home. When said bird never came, I plucked the nest from the brambles and placed it on a cake stand. So regal, so special. I love it every time I see it.
