Do you remember this bird?
Not the cat, silly.
The bird in front of her.
I found two of these at Target
for a very sweet price!
Now, as they were, I found them a tad
Poe-ish. I did think I saw a cute potential
under all of that Raven-look.
So outside at the picnic table
I sprayed them with a
cream spray paint.
After some drying time out came my
favorite new tool...some stain.
The tiniest bit of stain on a paper
towel left just the right amount of
color on the feathers for these birds.
Finally, they are dry and ready to go
into a little vignette...
O.k. so they won't win any awards,
but they are so much
sweeter looking now.
I don't have nightmares
after looking at them!
And the price was just right!
I'll be offline for a while.
Things are a bit crazy around
here. Warren is slowly improving
from his weird flu/back injury/
fever thing....we have a neighborhood
picnic...a brief trip to the mountains...
Lots of catching up time when we get
back....work to do on the church
website which will eat up
some computer time.
By then I will be sooo anxious to
get back here again.
See you in a week...or less!
Now I am going to look back for
some of my favorite past stories
to schedule for auto-posts.
The Farmer's Wife did this while
she was away and I loved reading
her stories...so I am stealing her
idea...well, they say imitation is the
sincerest form of flattery...right?
I'll be one year older when I come
back...Whew! This year flew by!
Hope your week is filled with
