My creative space..

freshly enameled blue birds…

..more fun than creative i s’pose
a friend asked if i could re-enamel these (formally naked) blue birds that she bought off ebay, & cause i’m a big fan of nostalgia (& Sharon) this is what i did today!
maybe they’re a bit darker that the originals? not sure, i’m just relying on a shady 70s memory of them.
the whole time i was doing them i was singing ‘blue skies’ for the line “Bluebirds, Singing a song, Nothing but bluebirds, All day long” (i was doing the Willie Nelson version, not the Ella, he’s more my it in your head now?)
why don’t you pop over to Kootoyoo for more creative spaces?

  1. I love your work, it reminds me of a jeweller who made tiny silver pieces in the 70’s. I had a little silver ring with a fly on it and a pair of scissor earrings. Ah..memories! I like the little blue birds too, so sweet. I hope to see more of you own work, in real life, sometime xo

  2. It is THE perfect shade. Heck. I love the Willie Nelson version. And do you know just how much I love bluebirds? Let me count the ways. I even wear my old bluebird that was given to me when I was born. Bravo you. You’re awesome.

  3. They bring so much cheer! Very, very pretty birds.

    NOpe that one’s not in my head but “Zippitidoda Zippititoday my oh my what a wonderful day plenty of sunshine shining my way Zippitidoda Zippititoday!” is though I don’t know the connection there I think I’m just imagining bluebirds singing it…. OH dear I will stop now.

  9. Beautiful Vic! They look to be the perfect shade of blue to me.
