Hello my Lovelies, I just wanted to share my DS Shirley's BD gift.
I created the ATB to look just like her Humming Bird cottage..
I wanted to take the photos outside her cottage but the lovely rain prevented that.
I must have caught a bug when I was up there and have been sick for 3 days in bed, better now, thank goodness, :), which is why I haven't posted this or visited anyone..
I made it like I usually do but then had to create a roof, I used 2 for the roof and 1 cut in half to create the angle on it. I made some paper for the wood siding and the roof tiles. I had to make a deck, so I glued some Popsicle sticks on an old wood trivet I had, in my stash..
I used a envelope that had a mesh pattern on it for all the windows, then cut thin strips from old book pages to use for framing them, love how they turned out.
I put the rest of the coasters inside. I didn't cover the inside, I thought she would like that concept, it matches the coasters inside.
I made the hinge stronger by adding some book binding tape behind the paper..
Ghees another long post, thanks for stopping by my nest and letting me share this, I had so much fun making it, I love to make miniatures. I have so many wonderful memories of my many times there it was a pure labor of love.
Some pics of the hummers..
I made a book years ago, for all her guests (and she many) to sign and write a tidbit of their holiday at the cottage.I had pick some wildflowers there one year and pressed them, so thought it was appropriate to add them to this book full of stories...
Okay I'm really ending this post now really, thanks so much for spending some time, letting me share my memories, it's been a PLEASURE I'll be around to visit can't wait to see what I missed...
((( BIG HUGS )))
