Birds Going South

These four birds made by cousin Judy stopped in for a brief visit on their way south to escape the harshness of winter in Indiana.
These have been so cold their legs have bent "backwards". For all of you making birds with bent wire legs, that joint bends like our elbows.

PS: To see these four birds plus all the others created by others and myself go to the Picasa album of "Birds". To read about the making of them click on "Birds" in the label following this post.

Cool birds. I think birds with knees are a very special breed...And the basket, out of buttons!? Did you make that? I have baskets on the brain lately and that one is pretty unique!

Karen, the basket is lots of mother-of-pearl buttons woven together. It was a present purchased at a gallery in Oak Park. If you'd like, I can find out which one.
