So Very "Tweet"

On a recent visit to one of my most favorite shops, Roxanne's Dried Flowers, I discovered this most delightful little planter.  I knew in an instant that I just had to have it.  After all who doesn't need a tiny cement ice-cream cone planter.  No calories here.
At first I was not sure what I was going to do with this little cutie but after walking around the shop I found these  two tiny little birds nests. 
The idea came to me---create a double scoop using those little nests.  First I shredded some vintage sheet music in my handy dandy miniature paper shredder and filled the inside of the cone.
Next using a wooden skewer I fashioned the little nests into a topiary.

Added some tiny eggs in the bottom nest...
Some more shredded sheet music to the top nest and for the "cherry", a sweet little bird. 
And there you have it...A "tweet" little ice-cream cone. 
Staying with the theme of tonight's post, I wanted to share with you several new charms that will soon be flying into my etsy shop.  These little Bluebird of Happiness charms were created using images from some of my favorite vintage greeting cards. 
The back of the charms are completed with a piece of vintage sheet music and a happy sentiment.
I guess one can't help being inspired by the return of the Spring and all of the songbirds outside of my window.
