Donna at Funky Junk Interiors is hosting a vignette linky party, and I decided to go. As if I haven't done enough partying this weekend already!

I am actually going to kill two *birds* with one post by participating. First, I'm going to share some vignettes that include my famous handmade birds, and then I'm going to tell you that I will be guest posting at Life in Grace as part of her 12 Days of Christmas Crafts Tutorials. And what I am going to show you how to make are my famous birds.

Funky Junk's Saturday Nite Special

These groupings should be on the top of my bookcases in the upstairs family room. *Should* being the operative word. They are presently piled on the hall floor while the ceiling is being replaced. Besides the birds, I am also sweet on the decoupaged oval frame.

You may notice that I like books and birds.

I didn't realize that I had such a bird theme going on.
There are even a few birds hanging out on my coffee table.

WOW! So much to LOVE! Tha birds are adorable! Do you have a favorite bird-seller? We love books and birds here too. Adore the idea of the art in the door panes! Our grandchildren live on our property and we just happen to have a swinging french door with panes just ready to be filled. I could make a burlap drape drop cloth and fill the panes like you did! THANKS so much for you post full of eye-candy and great ideas! Deborah

Love your birds and the ceramic ones on your coffee table! I like the whole area where the door is {including the door, of course}.

Jennifer said...

Love your vignettes!! It has been a fun 'party' to see everyone's creations! Neat idea for your door! :)

Deliciously talented! Birdie, birdies everywhere, my kind of fun. Tessa's art blows me away every time I see it. She gets all that talent from her creative living mama. Creative is the operative word here Denise....snicker, snicker. Hugs!

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

I love the birdies!!! Now I'm off to your guest post to see how to make them.

Jodi said...

found you through Edie's 12 days...oh my heavens, these birds are FABULOUS! must dive into my stash in a bit and find some fabric that would be fun to play with...can't wait to experiment with them. thanks so much for sharing!

Jennifer Matott (Sigmagirl) said...

Hi, Denise! I was wondering if you could email me that PDF for the birds? It tried to access it through your link but it won't work for me! My email is:

Thanks! I love them and would love to make some for a friend who loves birds and for a project I'm working on.

Debbie said...

Totally cute birds! I can't wait to give them a try.
