A *BLUEBIRD* Give Away From The Shed "Matt 6:26"

Greetings and holykisses Yall!
It's been way too long since I've had a give away here at the shed!
So last night I started stitchin up a lil hand-did from lil ole me... to thee!

This little bluebird was created out of muslin, using the pattern I won from Barefoot Primitives last year. Her wings are primly stitched on, and no glue was used on her at all. She's painted, and sanded to look olde and worn.... and if you look close- Matt 6:26 is on her left wing: a reminder to trust our Lord. ~Her eyes are a couple olde snaps that I found in my button tin, and the spring....; well....I cut it out of an old bench seat from a 67 Chevy pickup.

The tag, was still a little wet when I snapped the picture. But it has Matt 6:26 on it, as well as old string, dryer lint, a strand of hair I found in a real bird nest, and a little bird seed. ;)
I'm also including this book. My friend Sara gave me my own copy, and I love it so much I went out and bought one for the winner of this give away. I hope it blesses you as much as it does me!

To enter this give away, leave a comment on "this" post, to let me know you want "in!"
You don't have to be a follower of "me" ...but I'm hoping you're a follower of HIM! Also, it's open to anyone in the U.S.! Comment away! Deadline is noon on Friday, February 26th. At that time, all the names will go in my straw garden hat, and one person will be drawn.

Smoochy holykisses xoxo

I would love to enter Lea! The bird is awesome and the book sounds great! If you love it, I know I would too! Is it OK to sign up even though I won a giveaway from you a long while back?

Paula said...

Aloha my dear Lea! Some little birdie has been very busy using her creative talents! What a georgous blue bird. Love the old chevy spring, and the card is precious (especially the scratch feed on the card! Cleaver)

We are so blessed that we have a saviour who loves and cares for us that much, that HE meets out needs. The scripture is so beautifully clear on that.

Please enter me into your giveaway, and thank you for having one :-) Hope that little birdie gets to fly all the way to Kauai!!

Aloha Paula

Yes please, I love your blue bird it's amazing--he looks like he could bring a little sunshine into my life.

Sunnyside Up said...

I would be beyond BLESED to have anything handmade by YOU! God has given you so many good talents and this one is just precious! SO of course enter lil ole ME!

Actually...I have to admit that I shed a few tears when I read your comments about birdie! Just needed the reminder that I dont need to worry about all the things of this world and the things that have been heavy on my heart...I only need to TRUST IN HIM! I remember back a while when you had the picture of the birds eating seed off of freshly fallen snow and (I THINK?) you added this very scripture...we are SO taken care of by our need to worry!

Love ya sweet and TALENTED friend! Thanks for letting HIM use YOU in mighty ways! You will NEVER KNOW how much you touch and encourage ME!
