Look What Landed On My Doorstep!

I got a package delivered to my doorstep today! And when I opened the box....
These two little cuties were nestled in pink tissue paper! Aren't they adorable, with their little party hats? They were made by Laurie @ Magpie Ethel, and I got them from her Etsy shop. If you're not familiar with Laurie, you really should check out her blog! She's got alot of great collections, and she's a very talented crafter. All of her creations are made with vintage materials.

Not only were Tilly and Malcolm in the box (yes, I've named the birds), but Laurie also included a little goody bag, with that prize ribbon on it that she made, but also that big thank you card, which is handmade too, and her business card in that little waxpaper envelope, that she also embellished. All in all, she goes that extra mile when sending out her packages!

After posing for me, Tilly and Malcolm immediately flew over to our little Valentine tree, where they are now roosting. They are definitely ready for a party!

I'm told that there are a couple of these birdies left in Laurie's shop. She also has alot of other cute creations in there too. Thanks Laurie!
Please pardon the blurriness of some of the pictures. I dropped the camera just before, and I think it might be on it's last legs.....
EDITED TO ADD: GO VIKINGS!! GO FAVRE!!

Love them! I just purchased two little pink vintage birds at our local antique shop to put up for a Valentine's Day display as well. I will be sure to post pics when I finally get around to decorating.

Now I am off to go visit Laurie's shop.

Thanks doll,

What a sweet package. Tilly and Malcolm are adorable. Your vintage birds in previous post are very nice and the stitchings you picked up previously are wonderful. I also enjoyed seeing all your Valentine craftiness. Have a great day. :) Tammy

Adorable birds, thanks for the link. And how cute is that Valentine's tree!
Now that Kurt Warner and the Cards are no longer in I am hoping your Vikings go all the way. It would be nice to see Favre win another Super Bowl at his age.
