Little Birdies MakeOver for "Show and Tell Friday"

Hello friends~ I am joining Cindy at 'A Romantic Home'- for my very first "Show and Tell Friday!" Please click on her link to visit her and all of her participants-

It has been a while since I did these, but I stopped by Tales of An OC Cottage- the other day and M was sharing her darling little birdies that she had done over, which inspired me to share mine!

Last summer, I had gone into the Dollar store and bought several of the little birdies they had. I found a number of these but only one Blue Jay was left. The Blue Jay was a very bright blue with a white breast and I'm sorry I didn't take a before picture, but I'm sure you can picture what he had looked like. He actually didn't look too bad in his former attire but since I like white, he got transformed.

These little ones, on the other hand, are a very gaudy shade. So, they each got a coat of white paint. I have birds all over my home and I have also given some away. If you know anything about me, I love little birdies, and I'm looking forward to having the songbirds back!
My birdies are not all blinged up like M's, but this one is thinking seriously about making her nest with a string of pearls in a chintz dish!

Thank you Cindy for hosting and thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi
