a little birdy...

how was everyone's weekend?
i had a wonderful weekend, well besides work. ick. nah,
it isn't all that bad. =)

besides working, i went thrftin'!!
i'm so glad caitie enjoys it as much i do!! we got some awesome
stuff but no pictures ready, so i'll have to make you all jealous another day ;)

one of the things i did get was this little birdy... for a buck fifty!!
i was very excited, i haven't been able to find a birdy any anywhere.

this is what he looked like when we took him home.
{isn't he beautiful?}

we gave him a good bath.
then we
we used some of this:
{i'm fixing to have to restock!}

man how i love it!
and the little guy turned out like this:
{sorry for the bad pictures, i usually craft when the childrens are sleeping =) you mommies understand.}
{can you see the holes in his mouth? i think in a previoius life he was a salt/pepper shaker, but we'll fix it!}

i'm happy for the most part, but something is still missing.
i think his details need to show a little more.. he's too bland.
i'll have to do more surgery on him and post pictures!!
but not today. =)


hope everyone has an awesome monday!
well as awesome as they can get. =)

i'm linking to these parties:


  1. I have a birdy like that. A friend made it in ceramics years ago. It was made to hold cleansing powder for the sink. Looks great with the paint job.

  2. so cute. new follower :-)


  3. Amazing what a little paint will do! Thanks for linking up to Mad Skills Monday!

  4. Cute transformation. These were all the rage in the seventies when ladies did ceramics at ceramics studios. My late mother-in-law made me this in a beige color & it was made to hold bathroom cleanser (like Comet). She kept hers on the bathroom counter next to the sink. Today we don't use Comet in the can like back then. You could also put parmesan cheese in it.

  5. Woof! Yeah, that is a big improvement!
