Another Birthday for the King!

Elvis would be celebrating his 76th birthday today.


In our house, he is celebrated everyday.  This year he replaced Big Bertha in the cozy corner of our kitchen where our female Sheltie (whose name is Presley) dines.  This piece is collaged with Elvis paraphernalia by my husband who is an obsessive Elvis fan. 


PS:  Bertha did not leave the building.  She had gotten dressed up for the month long king's birthday party at the Farragut Folk Life Museum (click to see that post) a year ago.  On her returned home she retired to a cozy rocker with a view in the living room.  I'd like to say she deserved the "upgrade".  But the fact is, she lost her place to this piece that was finished while she was partying.


HELP!  Elvis is taking over our home .....

Hi Nellie. Happy birthday to both you and The King. I wanted to tell you that I found your bird making tutorial and made a little bird. Hopefully there will be more bird making in my future. Thanks for the tutorial!

I had no idea Elvis had actually taken up residence in your home..you should charge admission to see the collection AND your husband! How fun are you two?
