Mother's Day

I made these bird nest charms for Mother's Day.  My Granny passed away a few years ago and I think about her all of the time.  I wish I could ask her things about her painting and art.  I wish I would have thought of these questions a long time ago....
My sisters-in-law and I got into beading awhile back and she took apart of bunch of her necklaces and gave us beads.  The little eggs in the nests were from beads she gave to me years ago.  I have been saving them for something special.  I thought it would be really nice if all of the women/girls in our family had a matching charm with Granny's beads.  I made a whole bunch (my family is BIG!!) and sent them out.  I think everyone liked them.  I wanted this Mother's Day to be thoughtful and full of sharing.  I wanted us to celebrate Granny's life.  I will always miss her.
