Home Sweet (Birdhouse) Home!!

Good Morning All,
Hope you are fine on this sunny, if cold, morning and those of you on the East Coast of America, I hope Sandy is not causing too many problems and that you are all safe.

Today I thought I would share something a bit different with you.  When I moved into my new flat, Louise bought me, as part of my house warming gift, these wooden blocks.......

and as soon as I saw them, I knew I had the perfect item to go with them. I had bought a Tando Creative Mini Birdhouse some time last year which had been lying on my work desk just waiting to be decorated but I had no idea what I wanted to do with it until I saw the script decoration on the blocks.  I have the perfect Script stamp that almost matched and so this is what I came up with.

I painted the house in Natural Wicker then stamped it with the Script. The flowers and butterfly were  touched lightly with the brush to give them an aged look. 

This is them in situ on top of my unit in the lounge - think they look pretty good!!! I am amazed at how well the paint and script match the blocks.

Paint - Dulux Paint Pot I have had forever!!
Stamp - Hero Arts "Old French Writing"
Flowers - Craftwork Cards - again have had them forever
Flower Centres - MB Die "Cherry Blossom"
Butterfly - cut from Martha Stewart border punch

Well that's all from me for today. Thank you so much for popping by and I will be back on Thursday with my DT creations.
