I don't have very many knick-knacky things in my house or even sweet wall hangy things because of my two little big bruising boys who make me say crazy mom things like, "Don't lick the refrigerator," and "Where are your pants?". But now! I have a room that I can decorate any way I choose.
Inspired by this gorgeous mini quilt and my own UFO, current whereabouts unknown, I decided to make my own birdie Dresden plate wall hanging.
What a luxurious afternoon was spent making something just because! I didn't already have a template, and so used the one from this tutorial. You really should try this, it's easier than you think. The center of the plate is Pink Birdseed from Alexander Henry.
There are 20 different prints around the center, and to be honest, I was worried that it would turn out looking a bit busy. But Little Birdie told me they were her favorite colors and it would all work out, and I agree that it did. The background fabric is a cotton/linen blend that is super easy to work with, and a lovely creamy color.
I hope to share more photos from My Room as it gets fixed up just the way I like. And I must bid you Adieu for now, so that I may say Hello, Vintage Etsy Sellers!
Happy New Year!
