Bling your Birdhouse!

Today's the day to stop by Karla's Cottage to see all her bling'd birdhouses! I already posted this in February 'cause I was so delighted with the whimsy...bear with me... I promise to have a new tote to show later - it's a lovely French Country & Butterfly tote.

Miss Bleu J in her chippy lawn chair and her blinged home are offered for sale for $22.00 + actual cost shipping to your destination. Paypal only please. To the first person to leave a comment. I've been a registered member of ebay forever, let me know if you'd like to view my feedback before purchasing!


I fashioned a tiny Easter bonnet for the tiny Miss Bleu J from a clasp of a broken vintage rosary. She is so happy to have spring arrive that she's perched outside in a chippy painted lawn chair with a beaded cushion. And her house needed some whimsy as well - lots of buttons and tiny shells - from a cheapy necklace at a thrift store - decoupaged birds fill the air and feast on tiny millinery morsels. My exterior is scrapbook paper scraps, some have a light wash of shimmery metallic paint. A vintage spool of silky thread is the pot for a topiary of craft beads, complete w/ a water can charm. And an itty bitty banner - how much more whimsical does it get? Stop by Karlas today to see all her beauties!!

Oh, Kelley, those are absolutely beautiful as well as my little eyeballs that keep drifting to the right at your double chocolate ganache and raspberry buttercream piece of heaven. :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog party. This bird house is so neat! In the one pic the bird looks like chocolate sitting on raspberries...:-) And your new pup is such a cutie. I love them when they are all wrinkly.
