Patsy’s BELONG Tour message about what we learn from the “little warbler” may inspire you to create this sweet reminder—and even if you didn’t hear Patsy’s talk you may want to make a small flock. Not only do these little birds look great on a tree, they’d make darling little gifts or package decorations or place cards at your holiday table (just write each person’s name on a bird with a marker). Our thanks to the authors of Life in Season for the photo and instructions.
