I saw these glittered birds reduced to 50p a pack in the Hobbycraft in Tamworth, I ermed and ahhed and then decided not to make a considered purchase, but you’ve guessed it, as soon as I got home I thought…… Easter!
So I looked on the Hobbycraft website and they still had some …… I managed to get 6 packs, as well as an awful lot of other things, mostly Christmas stuff, and all reduced, I think I got a parcel of 53 items for around £28.00 including free P & P, …….. all this in my “No Spend January”, now reinstated to a “No spend February”
And what am I going to do with them? Well, I always have a couple of decorated branches around The Towers at Easter and I thought this year Iris and Bertie might like to see them covered with said birds. The colours are OK, possibly not the red, but all the others should suit a springtime pallete pretty well.
I don’t think they need any more embellishment, we’ll see how the sequins stand up to being handled etc, but they can easily be replaced by some small, pastel coloured, flat back gem flowers I have squirrelled away somewhere to enhance the spring type feeling.
……. and then who knows they might make a reappearance at Christmas, I certainly have enough to cover my tree ……30 calling birds?
