Adorable little birdies!


Who better to perform beak replacement than the Vintage Christmas Ornament Doctor? I'm sure it will be successful under those skilled hands!


I adore these little birdies and they are so hard to come across. Seems like when I do find them they are just ridiculously priced. You did such a nice job. I keep an old egg crate around to keep my newly glittered rounds from moving....smiles...Renee


Dearest Barbara,

This post is missing the most important part - some instructions on how to make my own birdies!

Yes, I agree with Sarah. We Need A Tutorial! I'm guessing all it takes are some styrofoam balls, but the wings have me perplexed. Please advise, because these are too cute, and I can already envision some pink ones on my silver tree!

Amazed by your recreations of vintage ornaments. I have a few of the "creepy" head twisting off birds, myself...


Fun and sparkly! I just added you to my Etsy Circle and added at least 3 of your items to my Favorites! Very cute!!

Good glittering girl! Love the birds and have a huge stash (nest) of them myself and kudos for the repairs to those vintage treasures. I love, love glitter!


Thanks for commenting on my blog, Barbara!! Your blog is one of the few that I've continued to read consistently, because it's so full of eye candy... You've got me all excited about Christmas! Your glitter birds look fantastic, and make me want to start glittering things. I saw a couple of ornaments at a thrift shop the other day that reminded me of you!


Wow Barbara, you are doing such a wonderful job of capturing the look of the old ornaments. A little glitter at Christmas is a lovely thing. I'm pretty fond of it myself!

They are just precious! How sweet...I'm smiling just looking at them! ♥


I love your glittery birds, Barbara. I was so happy to find ONE a couple of weeks ago at a thrift shop. It's the only one I have, it's blue and it's very tweet.
Maybe I'll get lucky and find more some day!

No offense, but if there's a facebook like button, it'll be much easier for me to share.
