A Little Bird Told Me. . .


Marching into April Giveaway!!

Oh, yes, it's giveaway time. Leave a comment on this post for a chance to receive this little blue bird trinket box in celebration of Spring (and maybe a surprise or two thrown in. . . just because. :) Spread the word. Drawing will be April 1.

[Addendum: If your blog doesn't list an email addy, please make sure to leave one in the comments so I can reach you if your name is selected!]

[The tiny, round papier mache box has been covered in vintage-style paper and makes a perfect place for hiding a small gift. Perched atop the box is a shy blue bird made of paper clay. He is sitting in a nest of aged crepe, accented with seed pearls and vintage salmon-colored crepe. ]

Dear Cathy,
You are too sweet to share your wonderful talent with all of us through your special bird box giveaway! He is incredibly cute and it does my spirit good just to see his happy expression...we're still in the throes of winter here and he would certainly brighten anyone's day. I still haven't spotted a bird in our yard yet so it's nice just to peek at him and dream of what is yet to come.
Thank you for your generosity and kindness, Joanne
