Love Birds

Hubby and I celebrated our 20th anniversary in May!

That's a milestone these days!

Just as it was love at first sight with hubby and I way back when...

it was love at first sight when I saw these sweet little birds!!!
I emailed Laurie at Charming Designs and asked her

to create a piece for hubby and I as a keepsake for our 20th!

On a warm, sun shiney day a box covered in

pretty handpainted roses arrived at our doorstep!

Hubby and I opened it together!

What a wonderful present....

upon a silver spoon

they are perfect in everyway!

~ After 20 something years together we are still LOVE BIRDS~

Thank you Laurie......

We will treasure them forever!

Do visit Lauries Etsy shop to see her other lovely creations!

I love these birds. I have been watching her creations on ebay and etsy, but have not gotten any yet. I love the two birds. You little love birds, you!

Congrats Dolly!
Thanks for stopping by my site and leaving your nice note.
Sorry that silly old cheaping D rhinestone pin is staying in its new home. Funny how I like it because it is so imperfectly aged looking. A new shiny one wouldn't be as much fun.

Those birdies are so cute!
