I had admired these fabulous little vintage bird clips back when Laurie, also known as "Magpie Ethel" (click on that name to read her wonderful blog!) wrote about finding them.
Well you will never guess what she did:
She sent me one as a gift!
How nice is that?
I was absolutely delighted, and I will treasure this beautiful little bird forever.
I am hoping that I can get up to Portland again one of these days, and actually meet this extremely talented crafter and blogger extraordinaire in person!
She ended up selling them to me for next to nothing, and I am very happy to have them in my collection now.

(By the way, they each still have their original dust jackets intact, I just thought they would photograph better with them removed.)
Thank you so much, ladies; you are both total sweethearts!
