Birds of a Feather

Hi Everyone~

I would like to share some of my Etsy shop creations with
you. As you can probably tell, I love birds and birds' nests.


Here's a sweet little trinket box with hand-quilled

And here is a little mini "pocket" book that I made with
scrap book paper and images from Shabby Cottage Studio.
(This item is not in my Etsy shop.)

If you would like to make one, they're very fun--
and I have a TUTORIAL posted at Shabby Cottage Studio
if you would like to create one!

If you haven't been to the "cottage," you're missing
a special treat!

Linking to Blue Monday.
