Happy Home

We are lucky to live in a very nature influenced area, with our huge pond in the back and we are surrounded by acres of forests and swamps with very few homes. There are always birds including a great blue heron, egrets,  our bald eagle, barn swallows and woodland birds twittering about. They are difficult to photo so today I was delighted to find two baby morning doves sitting next to our porch. They are protected by bushes but if you just look down  from our porch they are there. You had to look closely cause they are the same color as the ground! I was able to take a quick photo before they hopped away. No, they didn't fly away just slowly hopped away. LOL. All these birds make this a Happy Home and that was the inspiration for my ATC today for Retro Cafe Art.

To make this this ATC I started with a black base and added the RCA Vintage Steampunk collage sheet. I added some copper paint and dimensional pearls for accents.  The sentiment Happy Home came from the RCA Collage Words sheet by Cassandra VanCuren. The little bit of tulle(for trisha!), a printed paper flower, a  RCA painted copper tiny Masonite house and a  RCA black painted tiny heart finished this little piece.

Hope you are blessed with a 'happy home".
artfully yours, gerri
