It's creeping into my kitchen cupboards...oh Pyrex, how I love thee...
I see all things through rose tinted spectacles...it compelled me to cross-stitch...
It's blooming marvelous!

This photo was taken whilst we were camping at our favourite spot, Midmar dam, just outside Pietermaritzburg in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa. Both hubby and I have fond memories of spending many weekends and holidays here with friends and family when we were kids.
I'd like to share a few more holiday snaps with you over the next few weeks, but I have been itching to do a little crafting today. So, I thought I'd share it with you now! I have a Pinterest list as long as my arm of little projects that I want to tackle, and this one has been on hold for a while! These darling little Lovebirds in a jar are super cute!
You can find the inspiration for this project, and the 'how to' at House of humble.
I already had two tiny birdies, but they weren't quite as cute as the ones above, and they were exactly the same! So, I decided to 'colour them in'! I used chalk and a sponge to create the effect I wanted. I also used raffia for a nest effect instead of moss, and a transfer acetate tag for interest. Here's how mine turned out...
So, two little birdies, one pink, one blue, have found a new home! And I have found a second wind to craft and blog about it all!
