Little white birds for our wedding

I've been collecting ceramic birds from charity shops for about six months now. The plan is to use them to decorate the tables at our wedding in June. I wanted them to be 

a) detailed enough to look quite realistic 
b) of the right proportions to fit into a small glass dome 
c) less than £3 

Today I sprayed them all white. 

So, my first ever Folksy Friday post is inspired by these six little birds. I hope it leaves you feeling chirpy!

  1. A lovely group of pieces! You can never beat a pretty bird! The collection you have for your wedding are gorgeous!

  2. Thank you Sophie. It was a great excuse to find some lovely new makers on Folksy and I love your little bird illustration. We do a lot of walking and that inevitably involves seeing lots of birds so they seemed appropriate to use for the wedding. Further progress reports to come!

  3. great idea for your wedding and great first folksy friday. love the seagull.
