I will be sharing today's crafty make on Leigh's info page...


This is today's bird - a superb fairy-wren...

And to answer Lyneen's question about a bird-themed Christmas tree - no - my tree has to have all the well loved ornaments from many years - and also many things we have made, We don't usually put the tree up until the 13th - my husband's Birthday - but this year we are starting early! The tree went up yesterday:

Note the wooden Santa Sophie made some 15 years ago sitting on the shelf....

We also have my brother's wooden tree up,
 with snowmen his daughter made in front of it:

And last month I asked my husband to make me a driftwood tree for outside...

So no - the plan with the birds is to make a sort of bunting -
 this is how it looks so far...

Happy Hopping!



  1. Love the cute addition to your birds bunting Susan!

  2. Love the bird bunting.... the little wooden Santa is so cute!!

  3. Superb lil birdie indeed! Your birds would be right at home on your fab driftwood tree!

  4. Happy Birthday to your hubby! Another December 13th myth busting event :) The driftwood tree is awesome and the bunting looks fabulous, too! Your Christmas tree is looking very happy and bright! This fairy wren might be my favorite!
