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 ;-)






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.


And before I forget, I want to thank both Sandy Toes and Carrie for this sweet award! Love my readers!!!!

Wenefrid- I love the birdy vignette. It is so sweet. I love that it has a home now in an apothecary/cookie jar. And I love my big sis in a crown tee. And I love the you made the crown tee yourself. I can't sleep and I miss you!! And...you are still so not mom, but as I was thinking about that exact same thing just the other day, being mom wouldn't be such a bad thing after all would it?? :)

I've patiently waited for years to see that darling fairy in the princess bedroom put to more use... I hear the scanner calling you!!! As a t-shirt/jeans lady, I very much appreciate the tee (playdate/project date for us)? Thanks for the over-breakfast reading every morning!

I really love the nest in the jar...

Liz said...

So so SO cute!

Amber said...

Wonderful bird vignette! I love how you tied it all together, inspired by your new found nest! Where did you find those egg prints to print off? They are fabulous!

Wendy said...

Hi Amber...there should be a link to the blog that I got the egg prints from at the beginning of the entry...if it is not working please let me know. :)

Dawn said...

I'm totally stealing this idea Wendy! Hope you don't mind.;)

Kari said...

I am laughing because I too have become my mother! Your mother and my mother are so much alike - every time I visit my mom (at least once a week, mind you) everything is different. I am the same way - we call it obsessive compulsive tweaking of the house. So glad you shared this and your vignette is adorable!
