For the birds

I went to this wonderful bead shop in Truckee, it had the best ribbon ever! See the ribbon on the right. It is a wire mesh ribbon from Turkey. It looks great around my birds necks!
Went to an Antique shop in Lake Tahoe she had 6 of these stiffened lace cones, I cant wait to put a birdie in one of these!
Then in Sisters there was this stunning ribbon that is used with yarns...oh, but I had another idea in mind ! I actually stiched this onto the bird to keep it poofie. Oh yes, a couple soup spoons!!
When I got home I had my newest toy waiting for me...Its called a wizard and then they sell these dies that cut your paper..I was hoping it would work on my watercolor paper Yahoo!! I Love it!!! Now Im going to go broke getting more of these dies! I think I'm getting into FALL! Do you like my pumpkins?? It takes me longer to figure out what to do with the painting, then doing the actual painting! LOl Hope you enjoyed my pictures!
