Bird of Passage...

Read the definition below & think about it.

I LOVE this.

As I opened the box, this is what greeted me and filled my heart with joy!

This precious little tag sat on top of a fluffy stuffing of vintage sewing patterns.

It was a treat to dig through it, but the best was yet to come!

Full of yummy detail, I could only imagine the time and effort this wonderful (& generous) artist has put into this beautiful work of art. It seems my photos simply do not do it justice.

So I hung it near the mirror so you could see the detail of the front and the back.

Then I laid it on the table...

Then I hung it on the tassel on the mirror where it will stay until my studio is clean and worthy of this beauty adorning it's wall!

Where did I get this? Who made this? How did I end up with it?

Miss Sandy of Quill Cottage

hosted a giveaway giving away pieces of her art work and I was one of the lucky winners. Not only am I a lucky winner, but I'm a new follower of her blog. If you've never visited her...please go soon (& be prepared for LOTS of eye candy!)

I'm so happy this little birdie landed with me!

Thank you Miss Sandy!
