What? No Chickadees?
Wonder what's in this wonderful package?! Huh? Huh? You know you do, but I'm not tellin' until you read the back story! I'll talk fast.
You may remember this post when I shared my grands' Thomas the Train bedroom decals and wished that I could find some decals of that quality for my project.
Gotta love serendipity or God breezes or whatever.you.wish.to.call.it, but Linda at Restyled Home featured Paul Wilson a decal artist in a post called Stuck on Wall Art. Linda provided her readers with a link to Paul's site. Naturally, I zipped right over and I really liked what I saw. Just one problem — no chickadees!
I casually, humorously (I hope) mentioned it in Linda's comments' section that day. Very soon thereafter, I received a sweet email from Paul Wilson himself offering me free chickadee decals. True it was that he had none, but he'd make them up and send them to me. All that I had to do was tell him what I was looking for. Now I ask you, how can a gal turn down an offer like that?!
So here are the contents of the package...
Yes! Chickadees in several sizes and poses. I love the comical upward glance that one chickadee has. My favorites are the tiny actual life-sized ones.
Just so I could try the process from start to finish, I did place one of the larger ones on my cabinet. The directions were thorough and thus it was an easy application. Now I am putting these away for my real project, which will involve kitchen cabinets at my beloved's.
Paul's Etsy site is right →here← where you can see his amazing work. He has much to see and enjoy. You can also visit his web site at Wilson Graphics. I hope that you'll do both!
Paul, thank you so much.
And a happy chick-a-dee-dee day to you all...
ETA: And you can have some, too, right here... My Little Chickadees Decal
