Can you believe this is my 400th post? One might think I have a lot to say or something!!First of all, I am grateful for all of you who visit my Bluebirds & Roses Cottage, and to those who leave such kind comments. On my very first post I said, "Welcome to *Of Bluebirds and Roses*! My hope is to share lovely thoughts and things with you.......... "
I hope that I have done so ~ I want my blog to be a happy place to visit; a gentle respite....
Recently, Cindy of My Romantic Home commented on a post about how she'd like to make one of my birdie cones for her home. That inspired me to make one for her in her the colors of her lovely home. (most of you are probably familiar with Cindy's blog, but if not, please visit her, you will be inspired! :)
So I decided to make two cones ~ one for Cindy and one for my 400th post giveaway!!I used soft blue and white to make the cones, then trimmed them with some pretty vintage ribbon I've been saving for a special occasion ~ white crocheted lace with ribbons of blue threaded through it, accented with little blue bouqets....
Here's how they turned out. If you'd like a chance to win one, just mention in your comment that you'd like to enter the giveaway.Anyone reading my blog may enter to win ~ lurkers, please come out of hiding and say "hello". I would love to meet you!!
(Giveaway will be open through the weekend; I'll post a winner early next week! :)
