New Idea!

A friend of mine mentioned making a birdie to go on the shoulder of a maniquin. What a great idea is that!!! So this is the first one, I'll show you another tomorrow. Anyway, I made the little pincushion to fit into the center of the wonder vintage flower that had other little flowers around it...how cool is that! I put a piece of wool on the bottom to help stabilize it. Well, of course, after I made it I thought of other places...like on a little childs chair, sit it in a birds nest. It can still sit on top of a tea cup, or just perch her on a shelf. I would love to hear other ideas! I put this little guy back on Ebay...sorry, for those of you who cant stand ebay...I will try to work with both the etsy and the ebay.
I also added this one to Ebay...I LOVE the handle on this...A little black rub on letter in the blank spot, wouldn't that be a neat thing to do. I used Martha Stewarts brown glitter for the pin tops,to go with the polka dots
I'm working on more goodies...oh yes, please check back tomorrow I will have a little primitive fourth of july birdie.......

Laurie, I adore your birdies. I am so lucky to have one. I received it as a Christmas present. Wasn't that just the sweetest gift ever?

I love the Bridal birdie. But then again ~ all of your birdies are perfection!

Beautiful beautiful! I'd love to see some of your birdies as brooches- that way we could wear one on a lapel, or pin one to a purse, or a hat, or scarf...
