HomeStyle: The nesting instinct

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

This article was published March 28, 2014 at 10:58 a.m.

In recent years, there has been a growing trend toward adorning homes with a variety of decor featuring birds and their nests, writes Linda S. Haymes in HomeStyle.

Images of nests and birds abound, fluttering forth from places ranging from Cracker Barrel restaurants and Hobby Lobby craft stores to the pages of Vogue. A recent Google Internet search of the phrase “Our nest is blessed” turned up nearly 1.6 million results, while another search for “blessed nest” scored more than 6.9 million hits.

It’s unlikely the trend was inspired by the “Put a bird on it” sketch from the comedy Portlandia. Are we fluffing our nests to comfort ourselves during tough times?
