Library Day

Today was Volunteer Day at the Library, and I was surprised by a couple of thank you gifts that were specially made for every one of the volunteers.  There were hand painted bird houses in a multitude of designs and color selections.  The one I chose was green and violet with hand painted flowers all along the roof.  It's adorable!  In addition to that, there was a special packet of hummingbird-attracting flower seeds and a handwritten thank you card.  How nice!!

Tonight I have to finish a project I'm making for Cathy for her birthday tomorrow.  I'm pretty pleased with how it's turning out.  It's an assemblage art bird made with various metal pieces in a shadow box.  First time I've ever tried anything like this.  Doesn't sound very good - I'll have to post a photo when I finish with it.  So I'd better get to it ...

Later ... So what do you think?  Do you like it?


  1. I hope we get to see a pic of your gift!!

  2. I LOVE your bird nice to be appreciated and given a gift!Have a great weekend~

  3. Hi Tin Rabbit! Thank you for your comment. It's nice to hear that you like the bird. I gave it to my friend today at a party we had for her (and me as well - my birthday is Sunday) and she liked it very much. Whew! I'm getting ready to make some more. I have lots of materials ready to use in my craft room. Enjoy this beautiful spring weekend!
