Introducing My New Little Friend

I found this little fellow in an antique shop during my recent visit to Missouri and, since I have a serious weakness for birds, AND a pretty big bird collection (not live ones!) I had to bring him home. I have to admit, I even surprised myself when I decided to see what might happen if he helped me in a photo shoot yesterday.

Here he's holding the new "White Pearl Bouquet" earrings, posted in my Etsy shop tonight.
Then, to prepare this new set for a little feature in Cafe Handmade next week, I decided to fool around and see how a bird and flowers might interact..what do you think? Is this cheesy and trite, or fresh and fun? I'm not sure, the jury's still out, but I enjoyed doing it!

At least I think he might have a future holding earrings....as Kerri, owner of Cafe Handmade, put it "...No, I think the bird is cute. To be honest I'm getting tired of looking at earrings hanging on coffee cups or on sheet music."

He strikes me as playful. I also like how he allows me to see the earrings from two different perspectives. Lately, I've been eyeballing my rose bushes as props. They just need to leaf out a bit more.
