Decorating Our Nest

I've seen faux robin's eggs in nests all around the blogosphere and was inspired to make a few of my own.  So this weekend, instead of sugary marshmallowy candies, we now have a more permanent sign of Spring to display.

To create these eggs,  I used Crayola air dry modeling clay, Apple Barrel acrylic paint-cloudless, and Martha Stewart permanent pens and markers-sepia. I found a cute little nest at my local craft store and used a Fiskars punch to fill it with some leaves. Now all I need is way to display it. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Our home also gained a new piece of furniture this weekend. Target had pieces from their Avington collection on sale and the console table really peaked my interest. It received great ratings on the website, so I had to go check it out in the store. It turned out to be exactly what Hubbs and I  have been looking for. It was great quality for the price, so it got to come home with us! Hubbs put it together in a flash and I had a blast accessorizing it this afternoon.  The only thing I might do is change the pull. I now realize that I also need something to hang above it. Any ideas?
