Steampunk Bird Workshop!

The amazingly talented Lynn Stevens from Trash To Treasures Art hosted a steampunk bird workshop at her studio yesterday for some of her friends. I can't tell you how fortunate I feel to have been on the list. We had so much fun punking out the wooden bird blanks that she spend hours carving for us! Her hubby spoiled us rotten too! He had mocha lattes waiting for us when we arrived and then when lunch time rolled around he had made us the most awesome soup I have had in a long time! Some wonderful birds were created by all! but I am just going to blog mine because I am sure each one will want to blog about there birds too :)) If you click on the picture it will take you to a larger all sides view.

I like this little bird. Just yesterday I was searching for some old rusty watch parts I knew I had. Found 'em. I'm hoping to incorporate them with some rusted fabric I made. I guess I hadn't been to your blog for awhile, there are several posts I hadn't seen before. Thanks again for your generous sharing. I posted some vintage postcards on my blog, I don't know if I can offer them for people to download. I don't know if there is still a copywrite on them or not. Do you have any advice?
