Today’s weird bird has a ring to it…
Tintinnabulum – (N) a small, tinkling bell or set of bells playing in succession.
This bird gives new meaning to a “wingding!” Lol!
Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

An angel gets his wings,” says Zuzu Bailey in the movie, It’s A Wonderful Life.
This classic movie starring James Stewart and Donna Reed is one of my favorite holiday movies. So I created this doodle today in remembrance:
I used a bell cookie cutter shape (see yesterday’s post) for my stencil:
I think what I like most about this movie is the message. Sometimes I don’t feel like I make much of a difference in other people’s lives but the movie reminds me that it is the little things that I do that can have a big impact on other’s lives. A smile to a stranger, mailing a card to a friend who is sick or perhaps buying a bag of groceries for someone who is hungry.
It isn’t the big expensive gifts that people remember but kindness shown by a stranger.
Cheers Friends! 🙂

I have a bowl of vintage glass ornaments that remind me of Christmas past. When my hubby and I have his family to our home to celebrate Christmas Eve, I like to decorate my table with these ornaments, bells and ribbons. Add a few candles and it makes an inexpensive yet festive table!
I was thinking about these decorations when I created these three ornaments today:
My ornaments and ribbons are Gelli-printed papers I made with acrylic paints earlier this year. I like how festive this looks!
Do you have a favorite holiday ornament? I’d love to hear from you!
Happy Decorating! 😄
