Spring Pink nest scene

Size 6 x 4 " approx .
I have a thing for frames at the moment ;o)
This " frame " was a wood light switch surround
i found at my local DIY store in the bargain bin !
So i backed card with ledger paper , painted it
with white then rubbed green ink on .

Added a real twig , small bird -

then i came up with the flower heads ..

By using these vintage birthday candle holders !
Which i cut the spike off and glued in place .

Filled a tiny nest with a handmade fimo egg
feathers , a vintage millenery flower

I may use more of these " flowers " in other
work - something really simple -
but quite effective !

Have a fun weekend !!
We change our clocks on sunday - and
i`m looking forward to lighter evenings coming !


Hooped Bird In A Tree
necklace .
Hoop size 6.5 cm

The hoop is from a cotton covered bangle
i had kept to reuse , and i wanted to create something
inside it . I had a chance this weekend -
as our internet / phone was cut off - again !!
I tied pieces of brown wool and started loops
and knots to create the tree in a green chenille wool .

The finished tree .. Then i sewed a bird bead on -

i`d like to put another one on - but can i find

the beads ! ? Nope !!

It hangs , from my first time crocheting -
a single chain in multi coloured wool .
Which i tied so you can change the length .

3 wooden beads are hung on the bottom
and the other strands left as is ..
looking a little like the roots of the tree .

I can`t wait to wear this piece -
although my other half said it
was quite large to do so !!


" Summer Garden " Framed scene
size 5.5 " squared - recess size 2.75 "
The back has vintage music paper -
and 2 D ring hangers screwed in , with cord across
the top for hanging .

The small frame before the makeover -
It had a piece of burlap inside and a really
tacky looking plastic shell . So i removed them
as best i could and sanded it all . Applied various
acrylic paints to it .

Took a scrap of pale blue vintage dotted swiss fabric , backed it ,

then sewed some vintage millenery flowers with the

stalk still attatched and sewed them in place

with embroidery thread .

Added a wire / net butterfly

And the odd grass accents ..

I`ve decided - to offer this piece as a trade swap -
If anyone is interested ;o)
I am looking for some craft supplies -
Like these small birds which come in different
sizes - 6 on each piece of the card - or something simliar .

And some plastic eggs - in various sizes
and if possible - cream / white ones -
so i can colour them myself ;o)
Also i cannot seem to find - some white
paper photo corners approx 60 of them .
I`ve seen plastic ones but had no luck with the
paper ones - perhaps it`s a dying thing
with going digital on photographs !!

So if you`d like to do a swap -
get in touch please !! ;o)

Miniature assemblage .

Last week we visited a garden center-
and i saw some tiny real terracotta pots -
i bought 3 of them ! And i knew what i
would create in one of them ..

Inside is oasis , then on top some faux moss
vintage millenery flowers and teeny tiny bird .

for ages - i cannot remember where i got it !
