My sweet friend Lori Rippey (of HomespunPrims by Lori) and I recently participated in a swap together and here is what she sent me!!
Isn’t it absolutely wonderful??? She knows I love to make birds and this fits in perfectly with my collection! I have an old chicken cage and in true “MAKE DO” fashion, I have created a display cupboard of sorts, complete with a little door that was just the perfect spot for my new rug!! The reds in the rug really “pop” when combined with the red of the game board!
Here is another view of more of my “cupboard” As you can see, I took an old black bench for some added height, and more display options, and used some wonderful red shutters to help cover up all that white wall! I live in a townhouse and am not allowed to paint, so this was my answer to that problem!!!
My base is an old scrub top table that I just love and again, has that wonderful red….can you tell that is one of my favorite colors?? This is in my entry way as you come in the front door and I pass it each time I go up and down the stairs! I just LOVE how the rug looks with it and seems like it has been there forever!!
Lori has become a very special friend to me and not only is she an Amazing Artist, but her kindness and generous spirit touches all who meet her! If you are friends with Lori, that is something you already know, and if you have not met her yet, please be sure and stop by her blog to meet her! You will be so happy you did!! She has some wonderful items on her picture trail and also does updates that you will not want to miss!!
Thank you dear Lori, for being such a blessing to me, for being a Kindred Spirit, and for your lovely gift, that I will treasure Always!!!
With a Thankful Heart~~
