Red Glimmer Hearts

I came across this wonderful heavy glimmer felt at the store yesterday and I knew exactly what to cut out of it....Hearts of course! All this bling makes my own heart go pitter pat.

They also had a very pretty royal blue too so I have cut snowflakes out of that color. Check out the Etsy shop for more interesting listings this week.

New Birdhouse Gourd

I am really happy with how this birdhouse came out. I decided to make the heart around the entrance and call it a "Love Nest". The bookshelf and all the goodies it displays is on the back side of the gourd. This gourd measures 12" tall and is 9" in diameter. The entire gourd has been softly spatter painted for a country look. This gourd reminds me of a happy spring morning. I think here in Michigan we will need to wait a bit for that season though.

This is a view of the back
