I won one of her nests too. Mine says Dream which is just so perfect for the changes coming in my life right now. I have many dreams Im hoping will come true. But I found it ironic that I loved her nests first on an older blog. When I entered I never expected to win. These tiny nests are so adorable. Once I get to where Im dreaming, I may have to order some.
