CUSTOM-Build Your Own Bird's NEST Painting in OIL...and CSN Review

This is a recent commission of a Robin's nest...if you would like a custom nest painting, or are looking for something in particular feel free to contact me
 Also, I was recently given the opportunity to review an item from CSN Stores, I chose this Demeyere Resto 1.8-Quart Egg Poacher / Gourmet Pan (with 6 inserts). This is a quality pan, sturdy, non-stick surface, & easy to clean! I would recommend it to anyone who loves eggs! Be sure to check out CSN's over 200+ online stores!

Can you believe the audacity??! This is beyond copyright infringement and just plain sickening if you ask me! I have contacted etsy & will be checking to make sure this item is removed by this evening at the latest! And how sweet of them to have the deadline on my birthday!
