Here are Amy and David with their lovely wedding cake, bird topper by yours truly.

The bride and groom recently opened the other part of their gift from me, a smaller bird in a nest meant to represent their daughter, Hazel. It can be used as a Christmas ornament or enjoyed year-round. The bird is cotton with a fluffy feather tail and glass bead eyes, just like her parent birds. The nest was prepared by a crafty bird…instead of lining it with feathers and grass, it’s filled with lace, rick rack and flowers, and includes two scalloped vellum pieces with “Hazel” and the wedding date on them. It’s a one-month-old heirloom.
