I’m a senior citizen loving my business… I’m Linda the old bird

I guess you could call me a Total City Girl living in a rural country area in South Carolina. The city is filled with noise, amazing people everywhere, gorgeous buildings, internet, and wonderful noisy neighbors. In the city I breathe. Because I'm in the country I'm learning a different type of noisy. Days and nights are filled with sounds from animals that I don't recognize. Some days I see a car drive by maybe every hour. It's different.

One afternoon as I was driving by the high school, I noticed pine cones laying on the ground. I pulled over, picked up one and started wonderful what I could create from pine cones. That was the start of my adding them to my paintings.

So, I'm wrapped up in creating. As far back as I can remember I have been crafting. As a child my dream was to be a brick mason making designs that would stand the test of time. I love making things.

My new products are made to express a bit of the wisdom and heartfelt love I've learned throughout my life. The Old Bird is busy creating new South Carolina Pine Cone Art paintings, the world's softest throws – hand crocheted of course, and tiny handmade dolls to keep you motivated.

The Old Bird is Still Dreaming!

Life is hard and still you shine like the sun. God bless and keep on being a one of a kind masterpiece!
