Big Eyed Birds Get Hitched and Other Happenings

Admit it, the title got ya!

I have been wanting to do this for ever.

This is called a wedding cake topper. Not that you actually have to use it as such. I had seen some really adorable ones out there and it had me thinking about my birds. I did have 9 extra ones just waiting their turn you know.

The base is wooden and I initially had the darnedest time figuring out how to attach the birds to the base. Hehe, I may tell one day.

Update on the 25 chubby houses.

Going VERY well. Have 8 completely done except words and clearcoat, 11 in production and 6 waiting on inspiration. I took almost an entire day off the houses for the birds above but I think it was well worth it.

Something funny I saw at the Post Office today. A sign advertising getting paid to eat chocolate.

Wait, that's not the funny part! Very nice, professionally done magnetic sign asking you to call a toll free number for more Inforfmation...that's right, Inforfmation, hehe.

Love the Mr. and Mrs.
The mistake in the sign reminded me of one outside an apartment building - Batchelor for rent.

I think the big-eyed bird wedding toppers are a brilliant idea!

Oh I like this! how fun would that be? and different...I like different...much more interesting. These would be great to give as a wedding present, even, with the marriage date written on the base.

OH NO! That is fantastic!
If you don't have these on Etsy you need to. I bet you can get a lot of custom orders.
