I Love ....

...a bargain...and there's bargains to be had in the £1 shop...sale price 50p for three feathery birds...
This one's been plucked!
It's time for The Ribbon Girl colour challenge.. this months colour is ivory...so this little chap has some new clothes..Hop on over here and you could win yourself some goodies from the ribbon girl shop or a voucher from LOTV..


I used some silky crush ribbon cut into strips to cover the body, then covered it in a layer of lace.


He has snippets of ribbon rose trim for his wings, a lace trim bib and a splendid beaded tail.


His crown and cage are trimmed with a strip of diamante trim.


Flowers decorate the bow...you can find all these little bits of lovliness here...

How cute is he and such a bargain. I'll need to take a look. I've got a little bird cage like this that needs revamping. Thanks for the inspiration Effie.
