Baby Bird Treasure...

This was the third box that
I had made over the weekend...
"Baby Bird"
The front has a empty tag to
add a special name & birth date~

I didn't want much on the top...
The fabric is so pretty!

I made the inside story over lap
and come up the sides a little...

Inside view~

I painted the raw wood candlestick
soft green, aqua & pale yellow.
Sanded it here n' there~
White wash-painted it~
(watered down white & wipe off)
Once it was dry...I added a very diluted
antiquing medium wash so it would match the top.

I have a huge jar of corks...
They fit perfect in most candlesticks...
Makes attaching the boxes pretty simple~

Stockings Were Hung & Baby Bird

Little Sparrow stands straight!
(Those photos yesterday were horrible...)

More to come soon!

Busy, busy! Each one is better than the previous one! I especially like the bent spoon handle on the top of the box! VERY clever!

And I thought you said you couldn't sew! :-) Little mousy looks perfectly stitched! :-)
