Has a secret... I'll reveal tomorrow... And this little handmade birdie below is on the way to Arizona for my Mom... A little late for Mother's Day but I'm notoriously not on time, what's new? It's drawn in pen and painted with watercolor on a torn out page of an old book I picked up at a local Seattle thrift store...a diary of a world war II bomber. **Mom, you'll have to frame it in something that matches your new decor :)

First the goody giveaway...because who wouldn't want one of these fabulously colorful piggy banks! Visit the talented Michelle Allen's blog here and enter yourself to win one (I did!)
