Bowerbird on Vacation

Bowerbirds meticulously arrange found objects in their nest.  This work is a scrap of North Carolina beach vacation;  shells scavenged, leftovers of a leisurely morning tea, a bit of backyard leaf.  Cotton stitching and carefully arranged leaves and shells mirror the grass arrangements of bowerbirds.  Own this work to savor the beach long after the sunburn is gone and the sand vacuumed out of your car.
