Feathers, Flowers and Fluttery...


Thanks for stopping by today!  It's not such a great day for me today, my dad has had several TIA strokes over the past couple of years and yesterday he had a couple more.  They tested his carotid artery, one is clear the other has 98% blockage so surgery will be soon but they want him to wait so he can recover from the strokes first.

So one way that I keep myself busy (he lives 1,000's of miles from me) is to cook or craft! Yesterday was a cooking day, I made homemade brownies, finnish coffee bread, chocolate chip cookies, stew for dinner, and homemade pot stickers, LOL!  Today is a craft day and blog updating day!  This is the project that I made for the Magnolia Ink contest this month.  They wanted to see an Easter project.  I have thought about this project for about 2 months now and finally got it finished.

  
I bought the cutest little mini birdcage from Michaels and fancied it up with feathers, flowers and birds.  I used a new Magnolia, Tilda in Lace Jeans, Little Birds and Mini Two Eggs.  I used some sparkly little mini bird eggs inside of a soft little feather nest.  The crystal flower sprig is from Michaels too.   I took lots of pictures this time, so sit back and enjoy!



I am also entering this into the Magnolia-Licious Highlites Spring Challenge!


Thanks for dropping by, you really made my day!

Oh my word, what a fabulous idea! I would have never thought to decorate a mini birdcage, but this is AWESOME! Definitely will need to look at Michaels and think more outside the box. Such a cute, clever idea! Hugs, Rosemary

Lisa this is an amazing creation!!
I LOVE it :o)
Looks like you had fun with this one.
I am sorry to hear about your dad. I am so happy they have found the problem and can give him the operation when he is strong enough for it. My dad had the same TIA's and they couldn't find the problem and he ended up having a massive stroke. I will be keeping your dad and yourself in my prayers.
Hugs, Candy
