Birds in the Works

I went to Michaels the other day and happened upon these cute little wooden birds.  I don't have a picture of what they looked like to start, but they are just plain brown wood.  I've been adding paint, fabric, and accessories to give them personality (I have a VERY active imagination).  Let me know what you think; I'm going to bring them to the show on Saturday and see if they sell.

First of all, we have Carl the Cardinal.  He's quite the snappy dresser with his little bow tie.  He also enjoys playing golf and singing in the church choir.

Next we have Cecilia the Painted Bunting.  Don't get confused, female painted buntings are all green whereas the more colorful ones I shared before are the males.  Cecilia enjoys hosting a monthly book club where she always serves her famous brownies.

Finally in the works is a song sparrow.  I don't have a name for this little guy yet.  I tend to like to be alliterative, so Steve?  Sam?  Stuart?  Anyone have any suggestions for personality traits?


  1. Cute little birds and Cecilia would have been my buy. Love her strand of pearls.
    A friend of mine are making little ceramic birds and she makes one she call a pearlhen. Also with a strand of pearls.

  2. You have done a great job, I especially like the last one:)

  3. These are adorable! I really like how you used the fabric on Cecelia and the sparrow. :)
