My Love Affair With.....


As far back as I can remember I have loved birds...their nests, their eggs, their feathers...all of it!

Last year I started making birds out of paper clay. I just can't explain how much pleasure I get from crafting these little guys.

Here's my latest little feathered friends.

I decided they were important enough to wear crowns of glory.

They seem so right "at home" nestled" on top of a baking tin I got on ebay and painted with chocolate brown paint (another one of my favorite things, I might add).

The glitter eggs are from the Dollar Store, as well as the light aqua ribbon.

I'm just loving this shade of blue right now....can you tell?

Hope you are enjoying an inspired weekend!

I am.



  1. Aren't those little guys so sweet. You are pretty talented.

  2. Those are so sweet, I can't believe you made them. I love the blue color and don't you just love the dollar store?

  4. Hi Chari j, Lori and Alicia!

    Thank you so much for your comments on my little guys. I did take a tutorial on some paper clay items from Dawn at The Feathered Nest last year. Since then, I've been thinking about things I could make with this great medium. I found a simple bird mold on ebay to make these cuties and then added some more feather detail. It is a wonderful thing to work with endearing little creatures. The possibilities are endless. I tried a crackle paint technique on them, but it didn't show up too well in the photos.

    I'm so happy to be back here with you on Sunday Favorites. Hope your day is going wonderfully.
