Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday my pink lovin' friends!

I want to thank Beverly at for hosting another fun Pink Saturday and I want to apologize because my link to her site did not work last week. So sorry!
I also want to thank all of you sweet ladies that stopped by my blog and left me a comment. I was OVERWHELMED with the amount of sweet comments you left last week and I feel SO MUCH BETTER now cause I know you still like my blog. Thank you for your encouragement. You are all so wonderful and I am going to try really hard to personally answer and visit each one of your blogs to say thank you.

I hope you like birdies cause I have a bunch of sweet one's to show you today. I have been crafting away and I can't wait to show you what I have made.

The first pictures are a set of ornaments I have crafted from chipboard, scrapbook paper, and embellishments. I did some for Valentine's Day and now I can't stop. I am hanging these on a branch James cut from one of his trees and spray painted white for me. It is my spring birdie tree and I love it. I can't wait to show it to you when it is done.

This ornament is James' favorite. He says he likes it because the two birds remind him of him and me perched close together in love. Isn't he just wonderful? What a sweetheart.

This one is my favorite. I think I like it best because of the sweet paper and blue bow and flower embellishment. It's so sweet.

Here are some more ornaments I made. I took these cute baskets and painted them ivory. Then I filled them with "nesting material". Then I made some bird eggs from clay, painted them, and speckled them. Then I glued the eggs into the basket nests and added some ribbon and flowers to make them pretty.
I think they turned out so darling. I can't believe how real the eggs look and I made them with my own two hands. Pretty neat, huh?

These four lovelies are hanging on my spring birdie tree now along with many other ornaments I made that I will be showing you soon.

Ok, so here is another fantastic project that I made a few weeks ago. It is a set of canvases that are hanging in my living room.
This is what the canvas started out looking like. I covered a blank canvas with this lovely scrapbook paper . . .

then I gave it some color and patina. I love the spa greeny-blue color. It is so relaxing.

Then I added my images that I "aged" the edges of . . .

then I added the final touches, some ribbon, letters, and buttons. I think she turned out so cute.

I made her a sister because I needed two for my plate rack in my living room. They make a great pair.

Here they are together hanging on the wall. Aren't they lovely?

And here is my last birdie crafting project I will show you this time. I saved the best for last, I think. I started with a jar that I bought at the dollar store that had peaches in it. I washed it out and dried it, then decorated the lid . . .

with beautiful scrapbook paper, fabric flowers, and a sweet dove.

Then I tied a pretty ribbon and flower around the top. I filled the jar with the sweetest jelly beans that look like real birds eggs. I can't believe how perfectly everything coordinated.
And this my friends was a sweet gift that my lovely mom made during a special crafting day last weekend. It is a banner that says "NEST" and it is perfect for my little nest right now. She worked so hard on it and it is so beautiful. I couldn't believe when she got finished with it, she gave it to me. I was so surprised and thrilled. Please visit her at and check out her beautiful blog.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. If you visit please leave me a comment. I hope you have a Happy Pink Saturday and a happy FIRST DAY OF SPRING on Sunday.
Blessings to you!
Love Tammy
