Show And Tell Friday & Frugalicious Friday



I found this book, John James Audubon, at the swap-meet for $2.00. It has beautiful picture after picture of birds, which I'm thinking of photo copying for craft projects, I don't want to take apart such a nice book. It was fun to display with a natural style vignette.

I love, love the idea....how you displayed it is SO MUCH better than just laying it on a table somewhere.

I captured a bit of the Irish Lore today in my SHOW N TELL. Do stop by for a wee bit o' the Irish Luck if you can!

That's a GREAT find! I have a HUGE Audubon book of birds from my teens that I still LOVE. You may not know this, but it's an interesting piece of lore...he did all of his paintings from dead birds, that's why sometimes they look a little "off" in the painting. That's just how it was done back then! LOL
