Ohhh I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! Heather from Speckled Egg and Heidi from Birds of a Feather are hosting The Inspired Nest, a Silver Bella style creative retreat and gathering that coincides with the famous Brimfield Antique Show in May. There will be a day of sourcing the best vendors at the Brimfield Antique Show, a delicious (and well deserved) Welcome Dinner, a "charming" swap, a full day of amazing classes, luncheon, and vendor faire.... And in addition to that excitement...they've invited ME to teach a workshop for the event! I of course am honored! Heather and Heidi are each teaching a class too...all whimsical nest themed.
The sourcing trip will be great too...I'm looking forward to getting to know more Brimfield vendors and seeing what goodies they have. I swear half of the contents of my house is from Brimfield! :)
This is the cozy nest I'll be teaching everyone to make. The nest itself is needle felted wool and the base is a keepsake box covered in vintage paper. Pretty AND functional! :)
If you're even remotely in the New England area, please join us! I can't wait to meet everyone! :)
