Rose Breasted Sap Sucker

I had to share this one with you….. I made a pendant with a feather sent to me by a certain birdgirl who lives in the eastern part of the US. I live on the west coast, we don't have this particular bird here, golly though I wish we did, what a beaut. It comes from the Rose Breasted Grosbeak our Grosbeaks are yellow, they may have faded with all the sun we are known to endure.

When I received the feather I knew I wanted to enshrine it, keep it forever for posterity so I sandwiched it behind glass much like the Victorians did with hair, only I prefer feathers as a keepsake. I added a few scrumptious berries since this little silver bird is flitty, I only wanted a few for color but not too much distraction from the sweet relic.

I can get pretty sappy over adorable little treasures such as this, I really love them. Thank you so much for thinking of me when extracting a tiny and precious little bit of beauty and flying it my way…awww is right…….and a baby…aaaaawwwwwww, shoot!

xoox Ro sie  :)
