The main focus of this little display is the pheasant which resides in our Dining Room year round. Quite an attention getter, it always stole the scene when our daughter was young & her friends came for a visit. Of course, there is a story. I estimate this pheasant is at least 75-80 years old. It belonged to a beloved uncle who lived with my grandparents. Many, many years prior to my birth, when the town he lived in was just dirt roads, he accidentally hit this bird with his car. He felt so bad that he had it stuffed & always kept it on their mantle. Every time we went to visit, I begged to be lifted up so I could touch the pheasant. When my uncle passed away, my aunt put it in her attic. Years later, I asked what had happened to it & she gave it to me. I treasure it to this day.
Now, I'm going to ask for some opinions since I know a large number of you who take part in Elizabeth's Tea Tuesday are paper artists. I'd like to purchase a heat tool, and if anyone would like to share the brand that they use and how they feel about it...I'm all ears!
