Fabulous "Bird" Finds Friday

Yup, I'm finally posting my favorite bird finds. Sorry about the wait. :oP

So my guess is most of you have noticed a lot of bird-themed items have become popular lately including, fabric, jewelry, clothing, etc. Well, I have definitely been drawn to birds lately myself. I find I'm faving bird-themed items on ETSY alot. Sooo, here are some of my fave bird things on ETSY & eBay.
I received my bird sunhat from Tara on eBay and I really love it! It keeps me so much cooler out in this TX heat than I realized it would. I guess I need to wear hats more often. :oP I've already gotten a number of compliments on it.

I purchased this sweet sweet bird doorhanger for the twins room from Hazel of BlossomHill on ETSY. Isn't it precious? :o)

I have completely fallen in love with this vintage-style art nouveau necklace by Jody of 1ofmykind on ETSY and am waiting until it gets listed again and I have more "me money". All of her jewelry is amazing but I'm just drawn to this one for some reason. It's gorgeous!!

I just found this adorable bird stuffie by cornflakegirl on ETSY today actually. Sooo darn cute don't you think?

Take a look at these great bird coasters from P.D.A. Collection on ETSY.

Ok so stay tuned for Part 2 of fabulous bird finds, hopefully tomorrow. :o)


Tuesday Treasures

So I signed up for my first swap on Swap-Bot a few weeks ago. Anyone else done swaps on this site?? The 1st swap I joined was a bead swap...of course! hehe. Basically it was a destash swap where we exchange beads we already have on hand.
I had 2 partners I sent beads to and I received 2. I waited for the 2nd to arrive(yesterday) before posting the pics here. Soooo...here they are.

The 1st was from "Nana in Paris"(France that is). Yup, my first came all the way from France. How exciting! :o) Here's a pic:

My 2nd was from "BethAnne" who also has a blog. Here's a pic:

Most of these beads I can't use for any jewelry that I sell but the plastic and vintage pearl beads I can use in some costume jewelry for the girls so that will be fun!
Unfortunately I didn't take pics of the "good mail" I sent to my partners but I'm hoping they'll post pics when they receive them. I sent the beads inside colored tissue paper in round aluminum tins decorated with ric-rac, stickers and leaf-shaped tags. It was so much fun! I really hope my partners enjoy their packages as much as I enjoyed putting them together. :o)

I signed up for my 2nd swap today called "Just Stuff". teehee. Should be fun! :o)

I listed an autumn-themed bracelet yesterday for the ALTB Fall Harvest launch. I ws a little late listing but better late than never, right?

I'll be listing more jewelry either tonight or tomorrow on eBay.
I also listed a vintage pewter lion pendant necklace on ETSY.

I know I promised a post about bird finds last week but I think I'll save that for Friday. ;o)
