Little bird shrines


Over at the Milliande site Palma is hosting another altered matchbox swap with the theme of birds. I have decorated the boxes with a selection of my fav Scrollswork stamps. Inside is a little crochet nest and some faux pearl eggs. I altered the little tag that comes off my green tea with the little stamped words "a little bird told me so"

some of my favourite Scrollswork stamps that I used on the boxes..be sure to visit the site (click on the words) as they are having a huge closing down sale as unfortunately they are going out of business

Finishing the boxes tonight with a little glass of wine listening to the birds in my garden. I was very pleased today as my first issue of Somerset Studio subscription arrived which I chose as a gift for writing my recent published article in Haute Handbags. Its great to have my own copy to read at leisure as I was always borrowing this great arty magazine.

I love these Lorraine, and thanks for directing me to the Scrollswork site--great stamps--it's too bad that they're closing their doors.
