I'm working on a tassel now and have been arranging some birdnests. I'll try to share some pics as soon as my batteries are charged. I was in a store yesterday and then owner told me--bird nests are the new in thing. I thought geez, I have had bird nests in my home for twenty years. Blessed Sunday to all.

I've finished painting the birdhouse lamp. For the finial, I added a tiny nest with eggs. The shade is a large doiley that I am adding bird broaches to. I found five and need eleven more. Oh my! I need to hit the thrift stores for bird broaches.

I am working on this birdhouse lamp at the moment--it is just plain shabby cream and I am painting some pictures on it. Hope to show the finished project tomorrow.

I made this candle centerpiece for my dining room table. I took a gold urn (with a small opening), added an ivy bowl to the top and a grapevine canlde wreath (to which I added beaded grapes. Turned out rather pretty, if I do say so myself. I am so delighted to have my printer-scanner up and running again.
Today has been a cloudy drizzly day; so perfect for staying in and creating.

I am blessed! Today, I was given the results of the Pet Scan and there is no new or left over thyroid cancer. Praise the Lord! I've been creating again and wish I could share pictures, but my printer is not cooperating. I've been doing some of the dishes on candlesticks and love them. I also made a new centerpiece candle holder for my dining table. It is constructed of a smaller mouthed gold urn, to which I added an ivy bowl surrounded by a candle wreath of grape leaves and some beaded grapes that I had. With a fat pilar candle, it turned out just the way I wanted. Now I am going to return to my painting for a bit--I think I shall do some birds and bird's nest on canvas. I've gotten a bit of my energy back and am doing a bit of house cleaning and redecorating too. All the Valentine decorations are out. Have a wonderful week.
