Bye Bye Birdie

I am late. Or I should say I was late and no not that kind of late!;) Late shipping out my mom and step dads Christmas. It just went out on Tuesday but hopefully they will think it was well worth the wait. ****Note if you are my mom DO NOT read this post unless you have already received your package!;)**** See Mom wanted nothing but for me to make her something special. She specifically requested a tassel. With that in mind I made her a vintage Santa frame. This past weekend I made her a tassel. At first I was not so sure of how it was going to look but I guess that is the way it is with all tassels. In the end I wanted to keep him but knew he needed to fly to his new nest.

I found the little bird at HobLob. Now I wish I would have purchased a
few more.

I thought it needed some more something so I added the little vintage frames all the way around. I think this made him unique.

On his butt which is a signature I do on all of my tassels is a bow. A turquoise bow at that. Hope mom likes him. If not I have the perfect spot for him!;)


  1. Love that tassel. Lucky "real" mom. :)

  2. Hi Pamela...found you via the Texas Blogging gals site. Beautiful blog! I really like your header for some strange reason :)

  3. I plan to follow you, but something isn't working right...I will check back later!

  4. What a pretty tassel! I've been wanting to make some tassels! Some day I will be brave enough to try at least! lol Thanks for sharing with us.

  5. Pamela,

  6. Oh, Pamela, your mom is sooooo going to love that tassel!!! It is well worth the wait! Creative genius!

  7. I found your blog through Texas Blogging Gals. Your blog is so cute. I love your decorating ideas. If you head to my blog you'll see some of my "creations". I say that because I don't think I am that crafty. HA!

    P.S. I have the Poo-Pourri in our guest bathroom and it always starts up a GRAND conversation.

  8. Hey Pamela, Love the tassel! Stopped by from another Texas Blogging Gal's blog! Have a good weekend!

  9. Hi Pamela, hopped on over from the Texas Gals blog (I'm new there). I love your tassel, I purchased the tutorial from The Nester a few weeks ago and made one, now I need more supplies. I wish I had perused Hobby Lobby for more ornaments when they had their Christmas stuff out. I was just in there this week and posted about my 66% sale finds ;-)

  10. Beautiful tassel, Pamela! I love tassels! The bird is a great find.
