I was wearing my new favorite tee shirt yesterday, so against my better judgement, I took a "lovely" portrait of moi sporting my-you guessed it- crown shirt! I loved the one I made for the Princess so much, I HAD to make one for myself. And I wanted all you ladies out there to see how cute it looks on a grown up. Too bad I had indoor lighting to work with *gasp*... and my hair wasn't done *double gasp*...and I have one eye that looks a little squinty...but you get the idea anyway. So those of you who asked about crown shirts for grown ups, here you go! (Ugh. Now I'm going to get back behind the camera lens where I belong). I am going to source out tee shirts before I settle on prices for either little girls or ladies...so I'll have to get back to you all...and I'm also working on the home accessories which were actually the original plan for this and other drawings to share with you later.
A Little Birdy Vignette
I am the daughter of a mother who collect "things". And when I say she collects "things" I mean she collects just about everything. One of her favorite things to do with her treasures is to make little displays. She would come up with an idea and get very excited as she gathered up all of her things and then VOILA! she would have a fabulous display. So today I realized that I HAVE BECOME MY MOTHER. As I was trying to decide what to do with my little bird's nest, I got very excited. I hurried down to my computer and printed off these lovely egg prints and little bird painting that I found on this lovely lady's blog. I framed them up and placed my little nest lovingly in a little apothecary jar (well, it's really a cookie jar, but let's just call it an apothecary jar so I can sound oh so stylish!) I threw in a few feathers and lest you can't tell what the nest is inside the
apothecary cookie jar, I added a little tag. And TADA! I have a lovely little vignette (now I really do sound oh so stylish!) My little nest looks great until I can locate the perfect cloche or cheese dome/cake plate for it, and I love the whole birdy theme! Who knew becoming your mother could be so satisfying ;-)
