"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Extreme makeover of the birdie kind...

So...what do ya think? I tied the seam binding to the handle rather than glueing it in case I ever want to freshen it up a bit. I tied the train case's key to this little avian tag which was a gift from Donna.




Have a lovely week, everyone! -CS ^..^

Its lovely! I really do like it. It has an old-fashioned vibe and very contemporary at the same time.

Lovely! This came out to be so charming! The handle looks great to me, and I love a pop of color like you have with that electric blue!

What did you use to attach the birds, just Modge Podge? Also, did you give it some kind of clear coat to protect it?
