This little fellow was entertaining me at my window this week while I was watching the birds at the feeder. It's still snowy here and cold. I think everyone is having an unusual cold snap this year. The kids missed three days of school last week due to below zero wind chills. They loved it, of course.
Back to this little fellow that seemed to know that I was at the window photographing him for a blog posting.
Aren't cardinals beautiful against the white snow, pretty little red birds make me so happy.
Birds are one of my favorite inspirations for my work. I never tire of including them in my jewelry. This time with a vintage silver salt spoon that I found at one of my favorite antique shops.
I stamped the word, FLY onto the handle and attached a golden sparrow. She seems to be hovering over her nest below in the bowl of the spoon.
Here's her tiny golden nest with three tiny turquoise eggs nestled inside.
