As soon as she announced it on her Facebook page, I had an idea bouncing around of how I could use that wonderful coconut bra. I wanted someone to wear it! I was asked to put it on someone other than myself *coughJessicacough*, so why not a chubby little birdy. If you notice, she is rather chubby, so I had to put some extension panels in her grass skirt. (hehe, just like her momma)
I guess I didn’t realize I have a bird thing. I don’t like the animal so much that I want them in my house or around my head. But, decorating with them I seem to do a lot. I “ohhh” and “ahhh” at every decor item with them, be it a picture, ceramics, antique birdcages or blog templates (hmmm) . I even went so far years ago to grace every family member with a hand-painted, by me, glass bottle with birds and birdhouses. Craft painting – another one of my started and failed crafts. Anyone want to buy a tubful of Plaid paint?
Anyway, I liked the idea of a little Tiki hut. Then it morphed into a birdhouse. How about a Tiki birdhouse complete with a real grass roof? Hey, this is were all the cool birds hang out to get some ice-cold refreshing Lemonade!
Update: I won second place!!! If Thienly hadn’t enter…harumpf…she was just too good! Actually I’m kidding. Well, not kidding about her being good. 🙂 I was just glad to be a part of Jessica’s first challenge and be a winner with two very talented people. Kasi and Thienly’s step cards were amazing!
