I have added this sweet little bluebird to the give-away to celebrate my one year anniversary of blogging. I found the vintage pattern in a basket I bought at a garage sale. I bought the basket because it was a little wicker house that opened at the lid, cute. It was stuffed with old patterns, most of which I wasn't interested in. But then I found the pattern for this little bird. It is supposed to be a pincushion, and I suppose you could use it for that, I just think it's adorable for spring decorating. I am sending it along with the nest that I prettied up with some vintage millinery flowers and a button charm I made. The glass dish is the bottom to a lidded round butter dish that was my grandmothers and, sorry, it's not included. Got to keep that, but it does look pretty with the nest & bird:>) I think I will be making a few more of these and putting them in my etsy shop. They just sing spring don't you think? If you want a chance to win this, comment here, the drawing is Sunday night, March 2.

  19. Don't you love the surprises that are sometimes tucked away in a garage sale or Goodwill find?!! Great find and you did a good job making it too. I'm not so good at making animals... or reading patterns for that matter =) Blessings... Polly
