Happy Mail

Carolyn created the most adorable "Bird on a Tree Stump" piece and posted it on her blog a few weeks ago.  After commenting on it, she asked if I would like to do an art trade for it.  I just loved the idea of being able to create a surprise for Carolyn and was just tickled that I would be able to get her beautiful piece in return!  Here is what Carolyn sent me:



Isn't this just the most adorable hand sewn tree stump and precious little bird! She even included these extra goodies which I just love! You can never have enough fibers and ribbon!!



Here is what I made for her:



It was a fluted tin I spray painted and embellished. What a great trade this was Carolyn!! Thanks so much!!!

Both are lovely. I love the tassels you chose. I would have never known that was a fluted tin, until you said so. How ingenious!
