new dress and a pirate

A tattered antique dress for making things. You can click the image for a better look at the dress – it is ideal for making little wedding gowns for birds.

And a pirate – mick and his friend jenny. They will be in my etsy shop at 3 (new york time).

    I’ll so be there at 3! Can’t wait to start my Ann Wood collection. And can’t wait to see our cake topper. Jenny is beautiful!

  2. I’m sure I would love a bird dressed in that wonderful white, but I can’t imagine that you really plan to take shears to that irreplaceable dress!

  3. I am new to your little birds, to you actually. I just found you through Aphrochic. I would love to own a little bird. How do I know of upcoming little appearances so I can buy one? Beautiful blog by the way.

  4. I’m in love with the pirate! If he ends up in one of my books do I have to put a © Ann Wood next to him?

  5. Dear Ms. Ann Wood,
    I would just like to say that your response yesterday on Weddingbee was lovely and gracious.
    Your birds really are truly inspired. My Grandma used to make little birds a long time ago- which we played with until they fell apart as children. And if I’d known that she was going to die as soon as she did, perhaps I’d have kept a couple around.
    Yours are even cuter than grandmas, I have to admit 🙂
    Best of luck to you! (PS, when I get married a year and a half from now- I think the boy pirate bird would be fantastic on a grooms cake)

  6. I absolutely love your birds. The pirates have such character and the bride and groom cake birds are such a fantastic idea. I really hope you’re still bird-making whenever I get married (which as I’m 20 will not be any time soon!)
    Keep up the good work 🙂

  7. I just want to leave a note like a gushing fan, to say that as a big admirer of your work, I am absolutely thrilled to see my basket of mini gingham apples there on the right, in your Etsy favorites. This definitely makes my day!

    P.S. The dress looks gorgeous, but I am also very attracted to the bat skeleton beside it. (Is it a bat?)

  8. The dress is exquisite is it damaged?? I myself wouldn’t be able to “take shears” to it either??

    Love your birds and ships.
