Altoids Tin Love Shrine

We got the keys to our new place today! (Nope, not buying yet!) Tonight will be the last night that my craft room will be in one piece for a couple of weeks, so I just HAD to make something... I was totally digging all the awesome love shrines happening in the craft world this month, I couldn't resist.
I wish I could get a better picture of this sweet birdy pair I watercolored! The colors just are getting washed out... They are really golden with a rich pink on the throats and tails. The branches are from some little plant here in Alabama, I have no idea what it's called. The acorn-looking thingies are seed pods and the little seeds shake out all over the place.
And of course, the "love" is made from wire :) I haven't finished the outside yet, but I'll be sure to share once I do! Happy Tuesday!!!

This is wonderful, I love the combination of actual plant life with your paintings. I especially like the "love" made out of wire, that's one of my favorite uses for wire (makinf text)
