This took me back

While Amanda was here visiting she decided to take Duke for a little walk which of course made Duke a very happy dog.

They made Duke's ritual stop at that tree and Amanda found something.
I looked at this picture and just had to smile. She may be all grown up now but she still brings her mom treasures.

Yep, I'm still smiling over this one. Stuff like this makes being a mom all worth it.


  1. Looks like a robins nest. Its funny how they still remind us when they were young and always listened to you.It is nice to have those little reminders.

  2. Woof! Woof! COOL ... but it means that the birds nest fell down ... just hope after they had their little birdies. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  3. Look how perfect it is!! Now that is a find! Good Amanda. Good Duke. :)

  4. That nest is big and in great shape! Hope the birdies made it out before it fell out of the tree.

    Duke looks so happy in the photo of him coming towards you!

  5. Duke sure is a contented fella.. lookit the face when he is coming to you :)

    that's a pretty neat nest.. hope them birdies already left the nest before it fell.

  6. Yep sometimes they just keep bringing home stuff long after they are grown. How fun, and it making you smile was a double plus.

    Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

  7. Awww...a nest from the little girl who grew up and left the nest.

    whatcha gonna put in this one :)

  8. It wasn't till I read Roschelle's comment that it dawned on me that you will probably make a charming art work out of that nest! (In the second pic I thought he had found a turtle! That would have been cool!)

  9. I am all smiles since I LOVE bird nests. You are lucky to have a daughter and furbaby who find such fine gifts from Nature!:-D)

  10. That really is a perfect bird's nest. Kids are kind of like cats, they are always bringing you treasures and making you smile. That is a great picture of Amanda and Duke coming towards you. Hope you have a super fine day.

  11. They may grow in size but they are still our little girls.

    Duke does look like a happy dog!

  12. Hmm, the daughter who flew the coop holding an empty nest... Yep, there's a connection there somewhere--I just know it! No, don't help me. I'll get it............................................................................................................................. Okay, could you ask Duke to give me a hint?

  13. I think it's so important that we all keep a little bit of our 'youth' inside us ~ no matter our age! :) Adorable nest!

    Happy Day!
    xo Catherine

  14. Yes they do grow up. But they will always be your baby.

  15. What a lovely little nest! I'm sure you have plenty of ideas what to do with it :)
    This reminds me of when I used to bring back stuff for my mom too.

  16. Awwww, Mom! Your girl knows you and what you will love!

  17. Ah, it's the little things that mean the most.

  18. What a simply perfect nest...I am always amazed at how birds manage to make them so perfect....will you save it and make a bonnet next Easter??? I think Duke would look fine in a bonnet!!!

  19. out on the prairie I don't remember a time when they ALWAYS listened to

    Sugar I'm hoping so too

    Lin it was in very good shape.

    Beaded tail me too. and Duke, he always looks happy :)

    Anny he knows how to have a good time no matter what

    Sandee gotta love anything that can make you smile

    Roschelle LOL how about that

    Grace a turtle would have been cool. Believe it or not I hadn't thought to use the nest in a craft project. Now I need to do some

    Jean it was a wonderful find.

    Junezach sure was

    marg you're right although the cats I used to have would bring me things that I didn't necessarily care to have :)

    Daisy yes he does

    sheri always

    fishhawk the only think that Duke is concerned with is who's taking him for a walk

    catherine I agree, must stay in touch with our inner child, it's what keeps us going

    russ you are so right

    duni actually until reading the comments here I hadn't thought of using it for anything.

    sharkbytes it's funny how when she was living at home there weren't so many fun days, now they're all good

    bossy betty yep she sure does

    poetic shutterbug you are so right, this is worth more than anything that could be bought in a store

    allotments4you I can just see duke with a birds nest bonnet on his It is amazing how they make these nests, I wish I could see the whole construction process in action.

  20. awww.... it's those little things that can mean so much to a mom :)

  21. LDH, you are so right. Those things are worth their weight in gold and then some.
