Well i'm so glad todays' topic is birds! I love birds. Whenever I see something with a bird on it I want to buy it. It can get rather expensive. I especially love owls. I mean, how could you not love them? Their big eyes, their cute sort-of-round shape, their lovely hooting, the way they can swoop down and carry off squirrels...well perhaps not the last part. I really like squirrels too.
I especially love how people are using birds in their crafting. From softie owls to bird themed crosstitch patterns, jewellery and paintings, I just love looking at peoples' different interpretations of birds.
One of my recent bird acquisitions is a gorgeous owl tealight holder by Have You Met Miss Jones which was a present from my Mum.
You can't tell from the photo but when you light it up it glows beautifully from within.
Does anyone else out there have a love of collecting birds? Or is perhaps doing any crafting with birds as the feature? I'd love to know!
Oh and as for the sock monkey, I hope to finish him off tomorrow. Watch this space! Hopefully he will come out actually looking like a sock monkey. At the moment I have my doubts.
