Sunday Postcard Challenge - Nests

"Nests" is the challenge at Sunday Postcard Art this week. When we're young, most of us daydream of the day we'll be old enough to be on our own and I imagined this young girl might be having those very thoughts. My sixteen year old is already dreaming of her first apartment and she shares her excitement for the future with me so I suppose that's why 'nests' took me in this direction. I'm not quite as excited as she is! The base of the house as well as the sentiment is from "The Bird's Nest" plate from Oxford Impressions.
