Oh La La, A French Bird Display






After I finished packaging my French stamped candles I started looking for something to display them in at my booth at Orange Tree


Then while strolling through the thrift store I spotted the perfect display piece, perfect for a baby shower or....French candles!


Oh Ya, this will work!  I added pearl eyes, earrings, feathers, tulle, and of course a tiara.  It was 11pm at night and the more bling I added the more I giggled, I couldn't quit!


Of course once I got her all blinged up, she kept falling over, (More giggles) so I found an old table top, added some polka dots and of course rhinestone toenails


After she got a stamp of approval from Billie


This French bird was ready to get to work.  I loaded her with Candles and took her to my booth at Orange Tree Antiques


I have to say I was a little embarrassed to bring her into the antique store, she was just sooo goofy!  To my surprise the owner loved her and told me to put a price on her as she was sure someone would want to buy her..........I'm not so sure, we'll see.  One thing you can't put a price on though is fun and dressing her up was so much fun!

Happy Creating 
Carol

Oh, that is so cute. I also really like those French candles. I want to try to stamp on some, but I don't know if I can make them look as good as you did.
Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Oh Carol what a fun little bird, I love her! You might want to hang onto her as a permanent candle display. You could add holly for the holidays...:)

I totally did not expect a bird! I don't know what I thought was behind the sneak peek, but you just gave me a huge smile when I found out what it was.

I agree with the owner. Someone is going to want your glammed up gal!

Having met you at the unveiling of this blingy birdie-I can only smile now each time I pass by your booth (and stop in) and remember the day we met:) *I am the one that met you when you were putting out the birdie!* We've finally settled in enough for me to stop by your blog and it's fab.
