Birds in the Bedroom

I got so tired of seeing expensive lazer-cut bird silhouettes in magazines, and thinking "I could do that" ... that I finally did.

I printed out some bird shapes from Microsoft Clipart and used them as templates to cut out birds out of dark bronze shimmer paper. Then I blu-tacked them to the wall. It only took about 30 minutes and that night Steve came home from a gig to find a flock of swallows over the bed.

Hi Fiona. I stumbled accross your blog by accident while searching on Jane Austen Parties. I loved it so much it inspired me to create a blog. I am now taking my time going through all your old blogs. Loving the swallows and thinking this would look great in our bedroom. Thank you for such an inspiring and enjoyable blog
