I think the Robin was kind of hungry from being in that box for so long because she flew right over to my angel birdfeeder to get a bite to eat! Can you believe it?
Hee hee, I think she felt much better after filling up on some birdie food.
One of the little packages had this adorable altered notepad in it.
There is a little vintage rhinestone right on the center of that silk ribbon bow.
It's embellished so beautifully!
Just look at the little acorn fashioned out of a real acorn cap and a green pearlescent bead!
This just so happens to be the cutest notepad EVER!
It also just so happens that I adore acorns, hee hee!
See how it opens up?Cute!
Okay, next is this lovely mini canvas of
Ya know what else looks cute on my mini-easel?
See the little bit of tatting she used to embellish it?
Another little package held these inside:
The cutest little bird tags EVER!!!
Next, is this pretty pendant that says TAT on it!
Here's a closeup.
I love it because I think that Tatting is the Lace of Angels!
I thought this was the sweetest thing ever. It brought tears to my eyes knowing that she would take the time to make a pendant dedicated to tatting and angels just for me!
Next are these artistically wrapped packages!
What could be inside?
Deborah molded these herself out of a porcelain type clay!
The littlest package had the three little robin's eggs in them.
So cute! I love robin's eggs!
The last package to be opened was the larger blue one.
You will not believe what was inside of it!
This BEAUTIFUL embellished bluebird box!
Here's a view of the front side of the box.
Look at the little birdy charm!
The top of the dangles is a real acorn cap!
When you open it up the inside is just as beatiful as the outside!
At the bottom of the box are three little eggs that have a 3-D like effect. The eggs are handpainted on top a nest of grass! So very pretty and very detailed!
If you like this bluebird boxes, Deborah is planning on making
a series of them and selling them on her other blog:
The~Bluebird's~Song, so stay tuned!
Thank you, Deborah! I love the box so much!
I thought it would look adorable in a little vignette
under a glass cloche on one of my bird's nest cake pedestals!
I thought it looked so sweet grouped with the bird tags and TAT charm.
What do you think?
The doily underneath is a vintage linen center doily with a tatted lace edging that I once rescued from an antique store.
And last, but certainly not least, a little nest lay gently nestled at the very bottom of the box.
Just look at this darling nesty with the robin's eggs and Mother Robin!
I thought it looked sweet atop one of my cake pedestals.
Mother Robin is watching so dutifully over her eggs.
I love how the word "Family" is intertwined into the nest.
Just like these robin's eggs families are precious.
They are fragile and need warmth and protection.
A Family needs to be handled with great care!
Of course, I noticed the bit of tatting tucked
lovingly into the nest! So sweet!
Isn't that precious? Such attention to detail.
Deborah built this nest herself!
Thank you so much Deb!
