Birdie, Ribbons, Sea Glass, Award..

This is my latest little birdie, It is just a tiny thing. I found this sweet little cup for it to perch on.
Look how wonderful it looks next to the sea glass...sea foam ... The cup has a hint of color on the bottom
Then I discovered this sweet cluster of pink flowers in my goodie box and it was a perfect match to the ribbon
While making this pincushion I wanted to add a little something extra when I came across this hand made lace hankie. I snipped off the corner and added it for a touch of elegance.
I am feeling much better today!!! Finally! Then I received two wonderful gifts!! TWO
The first one was this sweet blogging friends award. Thank you Vicki!!

Which leads me into my second gift. Its amazing what a brown box can hold, first there was the most beautiful mermaid tear scissor fob made with the most fabulous sea foam green glass beads and a mermaid tear hanging on the bottom. On the back of the card is a story about mermaid tears. Its wonderful

Oh dear my pictures are out of order... anyway, the bottom picture shows a wonderful heart shape pouch, when I picked it up I could tell there was something in it...I hated to...but I had to...
I cut a slit in the back and look what tumbled out...More mermaid tears....Have I mentioned how I LOVE these!! Oh but there's more!!! Pat dyes the most beautiful RIBBON!!! Look at all the luscious color...Oh my little birds are going to be in heaven when I dress them in the ribbons!!
Heres the sweet pouch that held my mermaid tears
I'm leaving in the morning for a few days of R & R with my hubbs of 36 years...We're going to beautiful Eastern Oregon. I will take pictures. My plan is to put on a giveaway in the morning you wont forget

Thank you for the award. That was really sweet of you. I am glad you liked the fob, sea glass and ribbons. I finally found a red dye that actually comes out red not pink. I am honored that your birds will wear them. Just a little thank you for taking the time to create for me. I truly am enjoying my little treasure. Have a wonderful trip and so happy you are feeling better!Hugs,Pat

Wow! I haven't had access to a credit card since that last "money" fiasco!! LOL! Thanks for the award and I promise I'll link back - it may just take me a day or so - getting ready for Mother-in-law to return home (she lives in a MIL apartment at our house) and our fast trip to Denver to see the kiddos and the grandkiddos. Thanks for being such a Good friend - You are earning LOTS of gold stars!!!!!!!!!

Oh, thanks, Laurie, for the BFF award! You are just too sweet! I look at your birdies everyday, as they are strewn about my house ~ they bring me much happiness. Think I've even got one in the background of a pic I posted last night for the FFM this week ~ they just flit around everywhere!!

Big TX Hugs,
