Bluebird of Happiness

Whenever Mom comes to visit she always brings me something. She always finds things that she knows I would love. They are always perfect.She is almost as excited as I am to get my new studio up and running. So she brought me these goodies.This is the prettiest glass blue bird that will hang in one of the windows. She had it all nestled in this straw to make it look like a nest.I have never seen a pretty glass bird like this. I can't wait to hang him up for good luck.
If you missed this on the package, Mom said this was to hold me over until I found my real vintage pick-up truck. This would be the perfect color, too!This beauty was the best gift of all. Mom found this in an antique shop in NJ. This body form stands almost as tall as I am and is a pretty green metal. I just love it. I can't wait to decorate it.

It even has a shelf on the bottom here. I just bought an old mirrored tray to fit in there to display some of my goodies.

Many thanks Mom for always thinking of me! You're the Best!

Love all of your photos!! What a great birthday party too. I love the pin the fairy on the flower. As a mother of boys I appreciate all the frilly things. Your porch is lovely.

Your Mom is quite creative. I noticed that little car on top of the present right away and that dress form... oh my! Did I tell you I used one of the little crochet flowers on one of my vintage pillowcase dresses recently. It looked so sweet on it. The dress sold right away. :) Have a great weekend.
