Elegant Tussie Mussies

I have just completed these themed Tussie Mussies.
The first one features a bird's nest and can actually be
used all year round to decorate a home.

This "Seaside Dreams" was created to enhance a
seaside cottage home. It contains exquisite shells,
faux pearls, and a miniature corked bottle with
sand inside.

Your Tussie Mussies are exquisite and look like a dream.

Hi Cindy,

Yes, my Mom told me about putting a bird's nest in the Christmas tree, and we have a tiny little one that I found when raking leaves. It sort of just "puffed" its way over my foot.

Both creations are beautiful.

Have a beautiful holiday week ~

Hi Cindy, popped by to say I received your Christmas card today and thank you. I love your Tussy Mussys I've never heard of that term before.
No wonder they sold so fast they are fabulous.
I made my first truly mixed media tag today and am thrilled with it. Can't post it yet.

Hi Cindy, These are sooo pretty. You can't keep them in stock I see. They do make a lovely gift or decoration. I love the themes, I really love the sea shell theme even though I do not have that beach cottage. Have a great day!

Hi Cindy,
Thanks for linking up with my ornament party. The seaside dreams is gorgeous - what a nice gift to give for any holiday. We need to work on a supply of Sanibel shells for your tussie mussies.

Take good care,

Beautiful! I've never heard of the nest in CHristmas tree before. That's a lovely idea and tradition.

Beautiful things from a very nice post.

Sally Annie Magundy said...

I love this post! Your tussie mussies are so charming! My mom's dad was Swedish (and I adore birds), so this was especially sweet to me.

Happy Rednesday,

These are both so beautiful, and you're right, I think they can easily be used year round! I think I'll tuck a little nest in our tree this year. We could all use a little extra luck, couldn't we?!
