I made this shrine for PerfectlyBohemian in the Whimsical Shrine swap.
I found this little cupboard thingy at Goodwill. Here is what it looked like after I took the doors off and gave it a bit of primer.


Here it is finished:


The twigs are dead fall from my dogwood trees. The flowers are raw brass stampings enameled with nail polish, the little eggs are felted, papers are G45.




I also made little bird cards that I tucked into the drawer, but because 'out of sight is out of mind' I forgot to take pictures of them. Ah, well!

I really love my shrine, Cackle!! Here are some pictures I took of the cards the night I got home with it:





I can take some nicer ones outside over the weekend when there is daylight if you would like Smiley I don't have a light box for taking pictures, so that is my preferred method usually.
