Bird Song Pocket


I love vintage bird drawings and incorporated this Morning Dove into my latest petite pocket.

Again to my 'stash of stuff' where I pulled out these tiny metal birds to dangle from the bottom of the pocket.

I will admit to having several problems with this pocket -- things like working with the picture and the final stages of assembly.  Perhaps I've done enough  of these pockets that I'm getting a bit careless.  Perhaps the colors, which seem so subdued to me, did not fulfill my expectations...

However, I am on to the next one -- which I hope will be a bit more colorful and present a bit more 'energy'.

"Birds make great sky-circles of their freedom
How do they learn it?
The fall and falling,
they're given wings."
-Rumi

  1. Subtle and quiet. It may be the colour reproduction, either the screen or the original photo, but one of those greens tends a lot to yellow and the other to blue - might you have been happier if they both tended in the same direction?

  2. Wonderful!! Each one you make is exquisite and each one different from the other. I love seeing them all!

  3. Beautiful, Penny, in spite of your dissatisfaction with a few of it's components, it's simply beautiful!
    We have these doves in our back yard. :)

  4. A bird needs gentle surroundings to flourish.
