Canvas Journals...


The feeders were bustling with tweets n' chatter...
Storms were coming and our feathered friends were filling their tummies!


I purchased two little canvas books from
Jane Eileen's Etsy store  over one month ago~
I knew if I stared at them long enough... an idea would come!
I hand-stitched (my fancy talent) the bias ribbon along the cut edge.


The books are filled with vintage 'things' and feathers!
I drew sweet portraits of my feathered friends perched about~
They walk along our brick window ledges.
Peeking in~


It's getting to be acorn time...
One can never have too many shells, pebbles or acorns!


Each photograph shows the treasures that come with the book...


I wanted to start stitching buttons to every page...
Glue some stamps in...
Tack in a few antique tintypes...
Then I remembered~
I'm not keeping them for myself!


These two treasures will be in my Etsy store in a few minutes...
I hope someone will enjoy adding collections to the pages~


I almost gathered the courage to cross stitch little ribbon patterns
from one of my 1850's pattern books~
Perhaps next time!


I'm off to play with wool~
Two very special gifts for a super sweet friend!
Hope you have a fantastic evening!
