Aged Baby Shoe


I aged and crackle the baby shoe then painted a little rose on both sides, that match the color of the birdie. I also aged the ribbon. I really like how it turned out. I just put it on Etsy.
I'm trying to get ahead...Lollishop is opening in Nov. Christmas is going to be here before we know it. I try to have one birdie on Ebay and one on Etsy... I want to take a couple of things off Etsy and rework them, but I need more TIME.
**** I had the best crafting day****
Today was my day me that means I don't have to cook, answer the phones, do any cleaning...heaven!!! So I set aside today as Laurie's Craft Day"
I had a bunch of birdies made, but no I laid out all my birds and things I had "in the works" and matched them up...I got 7 finished. That's a lot..I painted flowers, added lace and flowers and glittered pins, sprayed ribbon with Glimmer Mist, now I'm pooped and my back aches. lol, its a "good" back ache.

Hi Laurie, couldn't find an e-mail address for you to respond about the rusty bird cage.

I purchased them from Creative Elements etsy shop

She doesn't have any listed, but *convo* with her! And tell her I sent you too - she's a real sweetheart *smiles*

Love this one too, Laurie! Painting the shoe is a good idea when they are too soiled from wear.

I have 3 prs. that I've collected and I can't bring myself to alter them....YET!

Your birds are beautiful. I love the sweet colors and cheerful nature of them. Cute, cute, cute.
(And wow, I was reading the prior comments- does someone have anger issues towards another blogger? Gee, whiz! Get a grip!)

Laurie, each little bird has it's own exquisite personality. They are beautiful.
