Bird Song

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. ~Chinese Proverb

Vintage postcard image forever protected in resin and set in a vintage brass bezel. Rose quartz, picasso, peridot and czech glass beads are wire wrapped in oxidized brass for an aged look. An antique brass chain is used as well as a vintage spring clasp for a closure. You can find this piece in my Etsy shop.

The Christmas decorating continues....whew, it is a lot of work! I finally broke down and got an artificial tree this year. The DH was not fond of the idea but I did not see him searching for a Christmas tree farm. Although we live in the "country" there are no tree farms around here and the one we did find 2 years ago had only pine trees. We were use to cutting a nice fresh Fraiser Fur( when we lived in Ma.), and I refuse to purchase one that was cut down two months ago and is shipped in from Canada. So....I bought a 7 ft. slim tree and boy does it look real! I have a yankee candle balsam candle burning and you would never know!


  1. Judy, your bird necklace is gorgeous, as are all of your creations. Love the quotes, so profound.

    Don't you just love the slim trees ... enjoy & have fun decorating! I wish I'd had mine for years ... they fit in places so much nicer & I love the appearance.

  2. Great necklace! I am about at the point where I would like to get an artificial tree. It is so cold here that you freeze by the time you find a real one!
