Treasures and Trinkets Tuesday-Birds of a Feather

Hello my friends,
Every now and then I love to share a few of my
 treasures and trinkets.
Today a few of my friends and I put some of our trinkets together to create some treasures.
So this is a little different treasures and trinkets Tuesday.

Last month I suggested to our craft group that we all create a craft with a bird/nest/egg theme and bring supplies for
each of us to make.
Everyone seemed to be on board, (or maybe they just didn't dare say, no)  :)
Well, life happens and out of 10 of us only 4 ended up participating.

Shirley has been busy creating for her daughters upcoming wedding.  She didn't feel she had time to put together a bird themed craft so she created those darling mushrooms.
We truly are gals that love creating and have so much fun together!
(Birds of a feather that flock together)

Kimi and I

Paula and Joanne.  Paula just returned home after serving an 18 month LDS mission with her hubby.  This photo of her and Joanne reconnecting is priceless.

And it didn't stop there. . .too cute!!
We are all so happy to have her back!

Now back to the sweet tweets.
Paula brought mini tart tins, spools, eggs, and vintage birds for us.
This one is mine.  I gave it a gilded crown and added a pretty pink flower.
This one is Margies.  I'm sad that I didn't get a front view.  She really looked like a Vegas performer.

For my craft I had them create the three bird/nest/egg scenes in the punch cups like I have hanging from my kitchen chandelier.

Margie's craft was a peat pot that we white washed.  She gave us papers to modge podge to it as well as pretty ribbons, a nest,
and fillers.  We also stamped the word, nest.
Kimi gave us a fun box, mushrooms, a sweet bird, ribbons, and flowers as well.  Like us, some birds are party animals and need a party hat.  (wink)
I love all of my sweet birds.
Here's where mine landed for now.  I have this chippy printers cabinet.  I love it, but it's hard to find things to go in it.  I have been going to make some fun things, but it just hasn't happened. 

Here's our attempt at a selfie.  We lined up according to our height.  Of course, I was in the front.  UGH!  Hate close ups!
Kimi, Margo, Shirley, Paula, Margie, Joanne, and me
Margo and Joanne stopped in for a visit, but didn't craft.

I will be sharing with these fun parties:

The next (I really wanted to type nest!) time I come across some punch cups cheaply, I'm gonna scoop them up for some tiny vignettes. What a great idea to hang them especially from a chandelier! I have made them with a cup glued to a saucer, but hanging them sounds great! I recently made some nests with excelsior with a center of Spanish moss, then eggs--simple, fast, and cute. I love birds and your projects just shout spring which I really need (here in Maine we are due for more snow tomorrow!).

These are great fun, Jann. I'm glad you didn't ask us to pick a favorite because I love them all so much, I couldn't possibly!
