Grab up some Relics & Artifacts today, and make some stunning art! (photos by Sandra Evertson, used with permission)
Yesterday on my daily walk, I found the sweetest little abandoned nest on the ground. I took a photo, but didn't decide to take it with me. Later I wished I had, thinking of all the creative things I could do with it. I made a plan to possibly grab it the next day if it was still there.
Then today, the fabulous new Relics & Artifacts arrived and I just KNEW I had to go grab the nest since it would be beyond perfect for the new Finch. Luckily, it was right where I left it. Nature's gift.
Happy Weekend Everyone! Got Dresden? We sure do! We just had a major Dresden restock plus we added several new styles! That makes over 240 gorgeous trims for you to choose from!
