pink birdy tassel

She is one of those ever popular birdies from Dollar Tree. I painted her pink and antiqued her with instant coffee. Oh, and I used my porcelain drill bit to drill a hole through her back.

My neighbor (when he was in his yard batting with his son) thought it looked like a bunch of onion bags (but then he acknowledged that he wasn't wearing his glasses).

My magnolia is blooming!!
