Birds...of a different feather :o)

Several days ago I mentioned I was going to try something a little different with my birds.  A trip to hobby lobby, some painting, staining, and waxing turned into these:
And this:

I am tickled with how they look.  I made these to look "aged" but have more ideas about some bright spring colored ones.  Stay tuned.   :o)

I had a wonderful lunch with Chris today and she gifted me with the sweetest little fob.  It was so grey and gloomy today I couldn't get a decent picture but I just have to share that with you tomorrow.

I think it is about time for another giveaway.  Hmmm, lemme dig into my box of treasures and see what I might have to offer.
