I was cleaning then BAM!

I decided to clean up my studio today, it is a mess. I have stuff all over and I haven't worked there since I quit smoking (today is day 12). I'd been working out of my kitchen just to change up my routine and help break the habit. So I'm organizing and cleaning and throwing stuff out and BAM! I get this idea after coming across a couple of outlet covers and switch plate molds that I purchased from a lady almost 2 years ago (I've never used them until today). Recently I purchased a vintage mold from the 70's of little birds, I just had to have it, didn't know what I was going to do with it, but it was too cute to not have, ya know what I mean?
Well for whatever reason this idea popped into my head and this is what came up with. The cover plates are from molds as are the birds. I added the limbs and the leaf and waa-laa...

I can't wait to glaze these! I'm planning to make the cover white, the bird blue and of course the tree limbs brown. When I was finished building these I decided to add a little leaf to each one just for good measure.
