The Migrating Birds...

Time to announce the winner of my Make A Little Birdhouse in your Soul painting! Firstly, a huge thanks to all those who entered the giveaway. I so very wish that I could give you all something, but, well, I can't. Sorry about that. The randomly selected winning entrant is Tanya from TLS Creations. That was fun! I’ll have another giveaway sometime in the not too distant future. As this giveaway was to celebrate Spring, I’m thinking I’ll have a giveaway for each season. So expect the next giveaway in December to welcome in our Aussie Summer. So for now, congrats Tanya! As soon as I have your postal address the birdies below will be happily flying your way.


For anybody who may be terribly disappointed in missing out on the painting, you are certainly more than welcome to purchase one of my new mini bird painting fridge magnet thingies by way of consoling yourself. Yeah I know, I’m so thoughtful! I’ve made a big bowl of birdie canvas magnets. I’ve painted a bunch of teeny canvases (5cm x 7cm) using acrylics and have attached magnetic strips to the back. I’ve not yet photographed them individually, so hopefully tomorrow I’ll do that and then list a few in my Etsy shop. So check in there later if you’re interested.


Just following on from my Red post of last week, I was seeing a little more red yesterday and wanted to share it with you.


Yup. It is a little more red than I needed to see but I couldn’t resist taking a photo when I spotted it. By the way, that is a zoom shot. I’m not in the habit of getting THAT close to complete strangers to photograph their underwear. Really and truly I’m not! I sneakily snap target strangers from a distance. That’s socially acceptable behaviour isn’t it? Couldn’t be any less so than wearin’ your jeans half way down your arse. Enjoy the rest of your week and see you in the shadows on Sunday.

Too funny! I do have the carnival photos coming...I'm still working on getting them to look the best. I've been trying to play around with some photoshop actions. OH and have a great shadow one - thought of you ;)

Sandra Ree said...

lol!!! Oh you're hurting my head T! I'm just getting over migraines from Ike and here you are making me laugh up a storm! Again, no pun intended! lol At least the underwear was clean looking, no holes. I'm still laughing...I guess we can add this to your stalker profile? Oh I do enjoy you so much!

I love the fridge magnet thingies, great idea!

Congratulations Tanya!

socially acceptable behavior…heh heh

Lisa B. said...

You're so funny!!! I think anyone wearing their pants like that deserves whatever they get!

I love your fridge magnets!! They are so cute:D I just showed them to my husband and told him they would make a good stocking stuffer...we'll see if that goes anywhere.

I hope Tanya will love those little birdies as much as I would have...they deserve a lot of love!!

I'll be posting my SSS very early...probably tomorrow and then am so sorry I will miss the following week. Unless I find I miss you so much...find a WiFi and post from Denver. Have fun without me:D

Tanya said...

YAY!! I love those birds :) I can't wait to get my ands on them LOL

I might have to get some magnets to match soon :)

Sweet Repose said...

Ali said...

hmmm, your red shot is a good one! (much better than a 'flesh' shot at that angle anyway!!!)
I love your new magnets!! I want one! (are they in your shop yet .. ?)
Ali :)

Ali said...

ooops, you wrote they might be in there tomorrow - sorry for jumping the gun - those little birdies are just a bit exciting for me!

Greyscale Territory said...

What a lively, fun post! And now you have that image of red Bonds, I feel a heap better after posting a zoom pic of guys standing in the Dromana waters in the middle of winter with jackets on! I went through so many guilts about that posting for Ruby Tuesday last month!

Twinkle Star Art said...

Not sure if my comment came through as there was an error. So here it is again incase it didn't work...

So glad that person was wearing undies!
You could get a job for Bonds as their paparazzi for their new advertising campaign.

Love your little birdie canvas magnetic thingies :)

Gina said...

Congrats to Tanya..you lucky girl!!
Your little chirpy magnets are gorgeous T..what a clever idea..and a great way to brighten up a boring fridge! I'm keen to get some soon.. and if you have a little badge for your shop I would love to put on my blog..one that links in..I don't know how to do it myself on typepad!
your red pic cracked me up (pardon the pun!)..thank goodness for all that red though.. just as well they were pulled up! Gx

Jennifer said...

Your birds are awesome, that underwear shot is HILARIOUS!!! It's classic. That underwear company should pay you to use that photo :-)

Thanks for visiting my blog, "fundidon't", LOL!

shells said...

Thank you for making me smile, I needed that today :) I think the little birdy magnets are even cuter than the big painting!

The Great Ethan Allen said...

I have a pair of red undies, But I don't show them off like THAT! PULL up your PANTS buddy! fashion today! Lowride jeens, bell bottoms and flipflops .... I think you shodul have tapped him on the shoulder and asked if he could bend over a little further..lol

High Desert Diva said...

Congrats to the lucky winner and boo hoo for me...

The fridge magnets are brilliant!!!

And the red arse shot...guess we should be glad there's no crack showing, eh?

Rosebud Collection said...

You are my kind of people..I laughed so hard seeing the red..This is something I would do..of course hiding behind some bush or something.

Walk in the Woods said...

Love the red! :)

Vanilla Bean Organic Bake Shop said...

Love your little bird magnets!
I wish I could ship one of my pound cakes to Australia for you - I wonder how long shipping would take? Any ideas?

Katie said...

The birds are adorable! Haha I love the underwear shot!

M.Kate said...

Hello T
I imagine you taking the photo without the zoom haha!! Now that would be too funny..but I see it here all the times! these low pants are everyone fav..I hated them but I had to wear them coz..almost every shop sells them, but not that low..and I dont think anyone should have a peek into my bum..its not a nice sight hahaa...I'll remember to pull my shirt down the next time or wear those low underpants...hmmm...
oh..congrats to the winner..and love your new magnets!! see you during SSS too!!

annette said...

AAhhh you have made my afternoon!! Without a word of a lie i have just purchased 3 of the identical jocks, colour brand etc and put them away in Jesses cupboard, just before jumping on here and i can tell you now i will be seeing them just like that, cause i am forever telling the boys to pull up their shorts, now everytime i see red bonds i will think of you!!
congrats Tanya on your lucky win, boo hoo to me :0(. will be checking out the fridge magnets after here - great idea Tracy. see you Sunday. Annette x :0)

Hot Fudge said...

Oh no! I didn't win! Well, I'll have to console myself and wait for summer. Love the fridge magnets and think they would make the most perfect Christmas gifts.

By the way, did Bonds pay you to take that shot? It should be up there on a billboard somewhere (preferably not in my neighbourhood).

shells said...

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy, I always love hearing from you :)

Tizzalicious said...

Haha, I always have the urge to take pictures of strangers, but I'm too worried they will notice!

Anna Laura said...

At least they are red, I used to teach boys who wore flesh coloured undies, so it just looked like their bottom. Ugh. Shudders.

Victoria said...

Congrats to the lucky winner, and those magnets are super cute!

As for that photo! What a hiney hoot!

XUE said...

hey T ! we should swap magnets! love that red shot!

Any Occasion Boutique said...

Stoppin' in to say HI and see how you are doing :-)

blackfeatherfarm said...

It is the time of year for a "harvest {red} moon ! "

annette said...

Hi Tracy, I have posted my SSS early as we are off to Townsville tomorrow, would you be so kind as to link me up please, i shall be back later on in the week to check out all the shooters. Have a great Sunday. Annette :0)

Sarah McBride said...

congrats to tanya...although I think it would look better at MY house.

Some people are completely oblivious to the fact that their rear end is hanging out of their pants. Although some do it on purpose. I wonder what this person was doing.

cybill said...

Thanks for having that competition Tracy, and congrats to Tanya for winning it. I'm glad to hear you are thinking of having another one! Oh the red jocks shot is classic - how do these boys know their underwear is clean?
