Bubbly Scrumptious Garden Challenge

Look what I found in the garden!! I'm so pleased it's no longer on my mantlepiece collecting dust and taunting me with its wicked ways......


"look at me I still here and you haven't altered me yet!!"


"If you don't get on with it the toddler will eat the bird ala Freddie Starr style!!"

"you can't do it can you huh?"

What was I waiting for Xmas...well actually yes I was going to make this into a Victorian Vintage Xmas house...but all good plans and all that!!


I was a little reluctant but I used my one and only Prima thingymabob!


The miniature feather boa trim finally got an outing it's been inside the birdhouse for months as I always knew it would go on it someday...somehow...somewhere.....


I gessoed the galvanised roof with about 3 coats then applyed PVA glue and liberally sprinkled white glitter onto it ala Melissa Philips style!! A tulle bow and one of these butterflies made from feathers which I'm sure are stamped with PVA and glittered (probably somewhere in China) but sold in my local florist!!

Unfortunately he can't really stay outside as the Papermania Papers would get ruined, so I guess we have a new house guest!!


ps: Don't tell anyone that this challenge is open to all and sundry because there is a prize of approximately £75.oo worth of goodies and I will fight you tooth and nail to win it!!
Just click on the Bubbly Scrumtious Blinkie to see this fab prize and how to enter!!
Love and stuff

Thanks for the heads up about Whitgift. I am going to give them a call.
I am in love with the gorgeous bird cage you did and the best buds layout. That picket fence is just adorable.
I should have some spends around the 21st but I will let you know.
Take care x
