IT'S A . . . IT'S A . . . IT'S A . . .

It's about the cutest little thing I've ever seen.
Look at that face!
I don't know about you, but I can hardly stand it.
spring bird
I'm just loving this new spring bird of mine--which was made from the most darling summer dress I picked up at the GW Boutique. (That would be the Goodwill for those who do not know.) 
 
Anyway, I made this bird especially for the big event being held over at Funky Junk.  She now has over 1000 followers,  and has thrown a big ol' party to celebrate.   I  just want you to know that I was a groupie follower long before she hit the quadruple digits.  And that's because I've always been a big fan of funky and junky and anything that makes people say, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."  It only took me about three years and the viewing of about a gazillion blogs before I found *the* kindred spirit.  Not *a* kindred spirit; there are lots of those out there.  I mean *the* kindred spirit when it comes to the stuff that makes my heart skip a beat.  I mean l.o.v.e.  I mean f.u.n.k.y. and j.u.n.k. together.


Funky Junk Interiors' 1000 Followers Event

But let's face it, junk alone doesn't get you noticed like that.  If so, I'd have a thousand followers as well.  I am definitely not lacking in the junk department.  Donna has carved out her niche in blog world with her SNS event each weekend and her ability to make visitors and participates feel welcome, while giving them  a platform to showcase their creativity.  I just love that girl!

So, if you are here from Donna's party, and you want to win a bird, your choices are as follows:
Spring Bird

Map Bird
You will choose the map location.
That makes it a custom paper bird.
IMG_5591
Logo Bird
Your blog button will be applied to the bird.

logo bird 3
If you are not here from Donna's party, head on over there tomorrow (1-21-10) and follow her directions for your chance to win.   You can enter up until January 30!  Once I get the information from Donna on the winner of the bird, I'll get busy creating.

Gush.. that was some intro! Whatever did I do to deserve such blog love?!? Ah. I get it. You want my metal canning jar wreath. Gotta be it. It's rusty too. :)

Thanks so much Denise, for offering up one of your specialty birds. I ADORE mine! You have such a generous heart!

Denise,
Love your little birds. Should like the beautiful colorful prints best, (after all this rain here), but do so love the 'tweedy' one.(no pun intended) =0))

Wonderful idea to put a logo on them!

Going to look around some more.

Beautiful! And so creative! I love the pleats in the spring bird. This is a new twist and we could do that on purpose if we want to take the time to pay attention to the little details!

Hello,
I came across your little birds and absolutely love them!! I would love to make some for my mom and am wondering if you could e-mail me the pattern. I made one on my own and it just wasn't the same. jlvanhorne@hotmail.com
Thanks so much, Jodi
