Terri's Random Act of Kindness

Would you believe what flew over and landed at my house? It is just the most precious little bird you have ever seen!

This lovely "Song Sparrow" was created by my dear talented friend, Terri Gauthier of Blooming Ideas. This amazing beaded and metal gilded bird is the first "Random Acts of Kindness" presents I have received! I just love it, and want to hang it somewhere that I can see it every day, not hidden away in a drawer not appreciated.

It appears as though it's body may have been encircled with a wrist watch band, a blue lapis buckle, legs of Aurora Borealis colored beads, and iridescent abalone feet. What a wonderful piece to own.

Thank you so much, Terri! It is just awesome and it will always be treasured!

Well, you know how I like green and
this is a very "green" project. ;) Recycling things that would of ended up in a landfil; an unwanted - brass sculpture, 80's earring, watch band, scrap metel piece, left over number from a clock kit, corroaded copper wire (which I love.) And there is a nest image for your "Art Nest" I'm so pleased that you will treasure it.


what a nice gift to receive.
astounding that it is recycled pieces created into this sweet birdie!!
