Bird Nest in box.

Birds nest are so popular these days, perfect for the cottage look, even shabby, and country. I made this cutie from tree twigs and clematis vine. I think it turned out adorable. The nest is about 3" by 2 1/2". It is lined with sweet grass and feathers, the ribbon roses are handcrafted as are the wool felted eggs, the birdie is free clip art and I covered him with glitter for extra sparkle. This is the way the nest is presented, in a blue box, the box is 4" square x 2 1/2" high. The box is trimmed with a picture of a bird in a nest, done in glitter.

You can see the detail on the top of the box. The lace is vintage from my stash.

A view of the side of the box. This would make a wonderful gift, already in it's own box.
Add this to your home decor., for just $16.75 plus $4.50 shipping.

This is my latest offering, this Victorian vintage style needle case. You can read the story behind it on my other blog Roses In winter, there is a link on my side bar. This little needle case is just about a 3" square, it is made from recycled velvet, silk, and flannel, and vintage lace. The picture is a photo transfer on dupioni silk. The ribbon embroidery is also silk.
On the inside you can see there are 2 pages for the needles , I added the seam binding down the center to add interest.
This would be a wonderful addition to any sewing basket, or tuck into a gift for a friend who sews.

Pink bird pillow

This is my latest bird pillow. It is my own design, the bird is satin and I applique it on and add the feathers with embroidery. I use dupione silk for the body of the pillow, here I used pink, cream, and soft green. In this close up you can see I used vintage lace behind part of the birdie, and vintage lace on either side.
You can also see the embroidered feathers,in pink, green and yellow.
On the back I made a sham finish and embroidered with a feather stitch for added detail. the buttons are vintage. It would make a great gift or addition to your home decor.
The pillow is aprox. 12" square and has a poly fill form.
It is $19.75 plus $4.75 shipping Sold
