It's for the birds..
I obviously digress. So, much like the Portlandia skit, I often prefer to "put a bird on it" when given even a remote opportunity. I never really had the chance after she was born to complete Sadie's room. I have some great handmade tiles I need to mount and hang from an artist in Chicago that depict scenes from Beatrix Potter and Alice in Wonderland. I have some fun paintings by her Great Grammy Evelyn (which is how she got her middle name) and one I did of a babushka doll. I'm not going to bore you today (unlike my last blog) and wanted instead to share some fun photos of a couple little baby room projects.
I bought these cute little unpainted birdhouses that I painted and decorated with various things and that I'm going to hang up in the corner of her room. I also got the letters of her name that I decorated with pearl beads, birds traditionally used in flower arrangements, as well as paper and crocheted flowers.
Kind of fanciful and charming...just the sort of thing I love!
