You know this moment, when you unexpectedly find something you had for a long time while looking for something else? Something that just makes you smile? This was true for me with this beaded little bird. A colibri my sister made for me years ago... years... something between 8 and 10 years I think... I tend to ten.
She made it with silver wire and seed beads. I have more beaded little things from her but I especially loved this bird! It was part of an advent calendar she made for me.
The orange and white belly...
And sitting on my hand... :) I will have to find a new place for him, he should not be hidden in a dark box anymore.
