Do you remember this little cabinet included in my post of June 17th?
Well, it DID have a different bird on top, so it looks a tad different than that photo I used. Here, on top, I have placed the cutest black 'sewing bird,' a pincushion made by my dear friend, Kay. And, I've moved it...here for the photograph near a window, then in another spot in the living room for an undetermined amount of time (below), like I do everything else.
Here...the new spot. I like that the blackbird pincushion shows up so well here....oh, and let me say - there IS mail in the mailbox! So, the little cabinet will rest here until I get the urge to move it somewhere else....at some other time.
And, now, for the whole point of this blog post...the inside of that little cabinet. Little books all about the birds. FUN!!!
The opened one on the table is very old, it's falling apart, but so beautiful still. It's written in German, I think, so I can't read it....but I love it anyway! More on the little book with the bird and the nest in a minute...but lets talk about the other books first.
I think you can read them fairly well....The Blue Bird of Happiness book on the left, has been 'enhanced' with a bird bookmark...they are so cute! Or, as I like to say they are "dear."
The brown on the top there....another very old book. It is also falling apart....I still like to take it out and look at it every now and again.
See. Many old photos.......1925.
The photos are still beautiful!
Having nothing to do with the little books is this little baby slip....drawn for me in 2010 by Michelle Palmer. Pen and ink on a vintage baby slip. How great is that?
The reason I showed you the slip is because she also drew the sweetest bird and nest on a little journal....you can see it here on the left. I just LOVE it!!! And, the little book sometimes lives in this little cabinet.
Here is a close-up of it. Isn't it the sweetest thing?
Like I said, I bought these in 2010. I don't know if she is still drawing and selling, or even posting on her blog at this point, but if you are interested, you can contact her....click to enlarge.
And, this little journal is the GIVEAWAY. It is sweet also. Along side of it is a little heart box.
Also included. It will have a little surprise in it for the winner and I will show the inside when I announce the winner. So.......if you want it, kindly make a comment on this blog post, or send an email to me, making sure I have a way to contact you should you be that winner!
The winner will be chosen on Thursday, July 26th
As I will be traveling part of this month, so I will not be posting until the GIVEAWAY announcement night....going to California to visit my son for his 50th birthday.
(Where did that time go?)
I hope you enjoyed seeing the little books and will want to own this little bird journal and the heart. So....comment or email.
Until next time
