Joining the Nest

Inspired by old-fashioned circuses and abandoned carnivals, this one-of-a-kind treasure box is a wonderful way to welcome a new chick to the nest. Full of whimsy and charming details, this box will be perfect for holding a few of baby's first mementos. Each box is handmade in Kansas by artist Tammy Smith. Signed by the artist.

Made in

Tammy Smith started making her bird treasure boxes when she realized that she not only loved the look of an abandoned circus or carnival, but she also liked the look of reclaiming some of these abandoned places and giving them new life.

Traveling with her family to England one summer, Tammy went to the seaside town of Brighton where they have a dilapidated pier that was destroyed in a fire.

"It looks like a giant wire birdcage," Tammy says. "And, in fact, it is because many birds have made it their home so it has a second life as a bird sanctuary. Seeing that old pier and the carnival on the nearby "new" pier was even more of an inspiration to create this artwork."

"Old circuses and carnivals attract and inspire me--both in a fun, whimsical way and in a sort of creepy, off kilter way."

Tammy likes looking at what happens when a carnival ride is abandoned and taken over by nature--birds especially, because they have that sort of Hitchcock-feel. Tammy also researches architectural drawings of old carnival rides and circus photos and keeps them around for inspiration.

Tammy lives in Westwood, KS.

Comments about Baby Bird Treasure Box:

This box is beautifully made and has a very cute design. I am sending it to my friend as a baby shower gift, and it is so adorable it will make up for my not having actually gone to the shower. It IS incredibly tiny. I don't know what my friend will be able to keep in it, maybe a lock of hair or something. It is a handmade piece of art, so I will not say it is too expensive, because the value of art is inherent, but, yeah. It is weenie.
