Glittered and shabby ...

I've been playing about again this afternoon ... I saw that Just Us Girls are having a challenge using a template .. hmm.. I have lots of templates, but I often go on to adjust or adapt or invent even. What to do? ... Well, to be honest all the templates were worth doing but I had a burning desire to make another bird house ... 
A shabby place with a 'straw' roof ... 





... lace and buttons and bows ....



glittered and distressed ......


My template was for a tiny wee house so I altered it ... I used raffia for the roof ... glued it and stitched it gosh was my room a mess! 
But I got it out of my system ... so I'm off for now ...

Thank you for all your lovely comments ... you're the best blog friends ever!
