Someday you might find your hero, some say you might lose your mind...

Noel Gallagher - What a life
Hello.
I think my all time favourite subject to study and draw are
birds.
Infinate shapes, sizes, colours, textures and personalities
stirs the imagination.

Elongated bodies...


Dingly dangly legs

Thoughts for embellishing handbags and purses...

and maybe into a mixed media piece...


or a zipped purse...

but then 'Dirk the Dog' sneaks back every now and again...
Front and back of gadget case...

I am working very hard towards building stock for vintageandhandmade fair, 3rd December...

Textile heart brooches a plenty...



and more brooches made from old kid leather gloves...

Well, I still have lots to do and ideas to make.
Hope to see you there.
Thank you very much for stopping by. x

My love of birds is well known, inherited from my twitcher of a father. And now I'm in love with your birds too. But glad that Dirk made a guest appearance too!

Everything is absolutely gorgeous as usual Viv but I really love the little bird in the tin.

I am also attracted to birds, not sure why but i do love them - just so beautiful and magical in a way I suppose. Love your creations x

Are you curious about me? said...

I'm loving the birds, but Dirk still has my heart..

Sheep Rustler said...

Dirk is my favorite, but I do love your birds too. Birds are actually about the only thing I can draw, maybe I should start doing them again, but if I put them on my blog please know that I am not copying you or your style, it's how I have been drawing them for years!

Jane said...

Your birdies are my favourites, Viv. Although Dirk has a lot of attitude, too! I hope your stall is a rip-roaring success. J x

Katie said...

Your birds are FABULOUS! Such personalities! Your work always brings SUCH joy. Whenever I see it I come out in the biggest of smiles! Very much looking forward to seeing you at the V&H fair the weekend after next. Katie x

So good Viv - I know I commented on your Facebook page but just had to come back for one more birdy fix!
Sending some "Betsy" tana kisses xXx

Victoria said...

Loving it, loving it, loving it. x

Vicky said...

Thanks for popping by my blog...having just started to properly engage with it, its nice to know someone is taking a look!
The birds are amazing!
There is just something so magical about a creature which has the ability to fly, as well as letting us see their personalities here on the ground.
Looking forward to seeing more!
Good Luck with the fairs.x

Hoola Tallulah said...

So much gorgeous stuff in one place, and your birdie drawings are the sweetest! Can please tell santa I wouldn't mind finding one of those cute brooches in my stocking!

Yum Yum Yum!

I dont know what to love first - the birds are pure whimsy but Dirk stole my heart ages ago.

Charis said...

All so beautiful especially your mixed media bird piece!

Jackie said...

I've had a lovely catch up here. Congratulations on all your successes, Country Living Fair and Magazine Publications! I loved the Leominster Eardisland post I don't know how I missed it. I was so engrossed I didn't notice Hetty standing behind the door and when I looked there was a little puddle..oh dear. Dog training and blog reading don't mix.

Dirk is actually the most popular, on the other hand love your wild birds as well. Parrots are in reality the only thing I'm able to attract, perhaps I would start carrying out them once again, however, if We hook them up to my personal weblog make sure you are aware that I'm not really replicating you and your type, it's the way i are actually pulling all of them for many years!
