Annie's Place

My daughter's friend Annie, recently moved into her very first apartment and I decided to make her a little welcoming gift.
First of all I made her a banner of yellow crepe paper rosettes the edges had deep purple sparkles I spelled Annie's Place on buttons in the center of each rosette and did I take a picture... nope I forgot ... just take my word for it ... it was so cute !
I did remember to take a picture of her little bird house tho and here it is.
What you can't see is when you peek inside I added a black kitten that said Live Love Laugh.

The photo dosen't do it justice, the color is a deep burgandy/purple with gold .
Its over the top just like our sweet Annie is !!!
I haven't seen Annie's new place yet but I hope to sometime this summer soon.

Diane, it is so nice to have a friend who does special little things like that for you. My sister, Vicki, is like that. I will get a card or note or some little unexpected something from her on occasion, and the words she uses in each case are so perfect for that particular occasion,it touches my heart so. It is an art and I know Annie feels the same with your little gestures of love.She is lucky to have a dear friend like you.


Oh that is so sweet -nice work Diane..
I bet she loved it..
have a fun day (:)

I don't think I've ever met a birdhouse I didn't love. And this one is no exception! I hope you're enjoying your summer there, Diane. We in Texas are sweltering.
