Of Birds and Books

I've been working on this for a while now, and while it wasn't hard, I kept getting distracted by one thing or another. It's a short children's story about sparrows - in a bird shaped book.
From the side. (The little bird cage is a candle holder I found at Michael's.)
Close up - don't you love vintage millinery flowers? And tulle - I'm a big fan of tulle!
Flower frogs are pretty cool, too. (Did I not give this guy an eye? Oh my!)
Vintage rhinestone buttons.
And a photo of Bryn when he was a little guy.
Little birdies on a wire.
Love that pink button. (That's Murph in his high school football days!) ETA: See the small silver frame on the left, sort of behind the cage - that's Murph!
Gotta have a little bling.
All babies fly the nest sooner or later!

Very cool book! Love it. Love the cage, too. One question...did I miss something...where is the pic of Murph from his hs football days?

Terri said...

Lisa, there is a photo of Murph in his football uniform, just not in the book! It's behind the book. I'll edit to post to help you find it. It is misleading.

Hi Terri,
I love this book, so creative. My favorite is the picture of Bryn and the bird with the butterfly wings, so sweet. I hope you and your family are doing well, I posted today and am trying to catch up with everyone.
Hugs,
Kathy

What a unique and charming book! It has such a vintage look to it as well, very nicely done. Fun to read, and fun to look at with all that detail. Enjoyed browsing here today.
