The peaceful dove sits patiently on her nest waiting to bring forth new life. Life is like that. Very often newness and new beginnings take a lot of waiting, patience and hope. I think of our 3 new granddaughters who were born in the last 3 months. Waitng during pregnancy. The patience it takes to care for a newborn and the hope that we feel when we encounter these little gifts from God. Our family has been a nest for Christine and Deborah, supporting them as they waited to bring forth these precious little girls.
50% wil be donated to EFA's charity of the month.

This set is called "Tall, Dark and Handsome". The largest one is the Great Grey Owl (tallest in North America) then The Spectacled Owl (the dark one), and the smallest is the Snowy Owl (a very handsome owl). As nesting dolls do, the two larger ones come apart and fit inside each other, and the smallest one is a solid piece of wood, which fits inside them. It is sent to you in a cloth bag, similar to the last picture (but it may be a different colour)with an owl tag, and a little note to remind you what kind of owls they are.
The artist is a true animal lover, and has always had pets, dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters. The shop donates a portion of it's sales every month to an animal charity.

manage their nest egg - an investment to treasure - Priceless Moments - ACEO Original Collage by Dragonhouseofyuen's Shop
Priceless and Evdokia were very careful about their resources. They saved in all areas. They managed their own nest egg. They invested in Sapphires, Diamonds and Emeralds – some as large as them! It was an investment to treasure. They kept them safe like the avocet in a small discreet nest and paid continual attention to it.
Donates a percentage of some sales to help different rabbit rescues and animal charities.

We watched the robins build this nest and then, over the summer, hatch two batches of babies. I waited until autumn to rescue it from the katsura tree right outside my window. It's not as fancy as some of the nests I've seen, but I loved being able to observe the whole process from the upstairs window of my studio!
