Birdie Darling...

Another day... more painting :-)

(click photos to enlarge)

Today's project a sweet little birdcage...


Perfect for this glittered bird,
that has been flitting around the house...


The perfect paper for Birdie Darlings floor,
this beautiful sheet music graphic


Of course Birdie Darling may be hungry,
so a little bundle of Poppy seed pods sits in the corner...


He does look interested already!


Of course any caged bird would want a lofty tower
overlooking the garden...


A  perch covered in soft moss
 and dried roses,  makes it all the better :-)


A pretty bow on top is like the icing on the cake!

I hope your weekend has a pretty bow on top!

I am joining
Niartist for Vignette Friday

Thanks for visiting me today!

Mariette said...

Dearest Bella,

Lovely bird cage...
Sorry but my head is not into writing as today Pieter will have open heart surgery. Such a tragedy for having a heart attack. Our best friend went to the airport to pick up our friends from The Netherlands as we/I couldn't go... All day at the hospitals, he got transferred to the big city for a better cardiologist. Let's hope things will work out. Tonight I will now more, around noon is his surgery of approx. 4 hrs.
Life can change in a blink!
Our garden will loose a dedicated caretaker, we must now ask for help...

Sunny greetings from Georgia,

Hi Bella,
That birdie sure did strike gold by joining your household! What a home you've made for him. The birdcage is fabulous and I love the paper, and poppy pods are a true favorite of mine. All of this beauty overlooking a garden makes my heart sing! I found you through Artie, and I'm so glad I did.
Happy weekend!
