Birdhouses ...

This past week I've been playing with my crochet hooks and threads.  I love the softness of pinks and greens.  My first birdhouse turned out so cute that I had to make another.

Then, of course, I had to use them ... and what better place than on a "happy bird day" card?

I guess another perfect place would be on a little note card ... with pink pom-poms.

I do believe you'll be seeing more of crocheted birdhouses in the future.  I have one in blue and brown just waiting for a delightful combination of printed papers and sweet embellishments.  I am so happy that I can combine a favorite pastime with my other love of papers and shabby details.  For me it's a match made in Heaven.  Thanks for stopping by ...
