A Little Spring for Sale











Spring birdy with skeleton key for wing 13.00 includes pack. and shipping SOLD





30.00 includes pack & shipping SOLD










26.00 includes pack & shipping SOLD
You know me and paper... we can't live with out each other for long. I decided to make a few items and put them up for sale here. I LOVE to make banners...and a girl can only have so many in her own home. All three projects hearken towards Spring but the birdy plaque and nest banner could be left out all year long. Sooo if you want to add a bit of Spring time to your decor...this might be the ticket. The NEST banner is all in reds/blacks w/ polka dot ribbon and measures over 40" with ribbon. The SPRING banner has blues, pinks, & creams with vintage German sheet music as a background. There are flowers and vintage buttons on it as well. It measures over 50". They both have scallops on the edges and as I do with all my paper projects I use quality chipboard on the back so the papers do not wrinkle or crinkle. The birdy plaque is on a scallop flower and has a skeleton key for a wing and a pink polka dot background and hangs from vintage crochet ribbon. I always plan to make more items and put them in my etsy shop..but never get around to it. I can't seem to resize my photos right and need some type of photo shop software to do it. So if you are interested just convoy me by email. I also do custom orders so email me with any questions.
I also wanted to share a cake stand I made. I bought two of these odd finial type thingies at a church garage sale for .75 and finally used one of them(had them for several years). I cut the finial down to make a flat surface. I found the wooden circle at Goodwill last week and decided to cover it with vintage inspired papers. I used a scallop for the edges and inked and painted and now it makes a whimsical plate stand. Well that is it for me today. Happpppppy Tuesday! XOXO, Cherry

Cherry, What wonderful things you create. the cake stand is outstanding. I wish I had a place for the Spring banner, but I am afraid I don't. I love your combinations on it. I love my birdie you made me similiar to the one you just made. Anyone that gets your treasures will love them as much as I love mine. Have a great day.

Eloise said...

Cherry, have you sold the little pink bird yet? I would love to buy it, if not. (I also love the blue one - either would be fine!) She reminds me of one of my favorite children's books, The Secret Garden where the little bird finds the key to the garden.
