I Could Wear a Feather~

Hello everyone! This is the latest bird-themed collage I've made. I love the color of rusty brown. Double click and you can see better. It was so cloudy yesterday that I had a hard time taking good photos.

I found this wooden frame at a garage sale. It came with another one attached to it and the glass was missing. If you look closely-it looks hand-carved because you can see a lot of imperfections in the pattern.

I found this leather coin purse at an antique store. And sewed the word "play" onto it.

This image of this little girl is so cute. This picture came from Dawn @ Feathered Nest. Thank you, Dawn. Can't you just see a child looking this way at a nest they found?

Wouldn't it be awesome to have feathers (just for a minute) and be able to fly?

I wouldn't want feathers for much longer than that for fear of being tempted to eat a bug or a worm! Ewww!

Those are real eggs in the nest. I don't know what kind, do you?

A dried up sunflower from last summer. This flower came from the seeds that fall to the ground where I feed the birds just outside my breakfast nook window. I love watching the birds eating (as they watch me eat!). So does Sissie, Buddy and Baby!

I showed this to my husband and he asked me, "What's with the wire and the nails across the frame and coin purse? They aren't holding those on there are they?" I rolled my eyes. I said, "Never mind!" He said, "Well, honey...whatever!" I told him I'm showing YOU, you'll understand! :) Haha...I hope you do anyway!

I hope all is well with you, dear friends. Please pray for the people who are suffering from the awful tornadoes. Especially the ones who lost precious family members and all their homes.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Another wonderful treasure sweet girl
I just HAVE to get myself creating again, on more than painting walls and floors for the new room! =)

Are you doing the Coburg sale?? Saw that tag when I enlarged your beautiful piece.
