Favorite Things...


For a few months I've been searching antique
and thrift shops for needle felting bases.
I like salvaging bits n' pieces of old, to give my
needle felts a uniqueness~


I saw this sweet set of four bird saucers...
Thought of how I might make nests
for the center...and add a tiny felted bird!


They somehow ended up with plate holders
strapped to them...


And hang in a sweet line over one
of my favorite desk areas...

They make me smile when I look at them~
Wanted to share a few favorite things
on this snowy, storm day...

Michelle,
Thanks so much for your kind words! That just made my day ; ) I appreciate, so much, your advice, too. I have tried to take watercolor classes here in Belgium, but the aesthetic is a bit different in Europe and trying to do it in French---understanding every other word just doesn't do the job ; ). I see from your bio that we are sisters, too!

I would have hung them up as well. They are very sweet and those chubby bluebirds are adorable.

I found you through Lori's blog. I'll be back.:)

Michelle, If you make a bluebird for one of those, it's sold!!! I'll buy it!! Seriously!

PS: Kiddo...you're tagged! "Rules" on my blog!

You have snow too, friend? IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL!!! Just what I needed today though was to see those pretty plates!

Hugs! Diane

HOW ADORABLE! Is there a manufacture name or pattern name? I would love to have some of these sweeties! I so love bluebirds of any kind! I wanted to let you know I posted about your give away on my Blog & also hope it was alright that I used you Valentine photo on the post so folks would recognize it as the right spot. If you object just let me know. I am looking forward to seeing what you have in your give away. Everything I see on your site is awesome! I love watercolor paintings & it looks like you are super talented! Your needle felting is adorable too. May have to have that strawberry even though I have put myself on a budget for internet buying (for a good reason... I have been sooooooo very bad lately). Have a warm safe day.
