Hello, my friend. I apologize for my absence; we’ve had some awful news in our family. My sister’s husband was in an accident with his motorcycle, and has passed away. We are, needless to say, all devastated, and trying to deal with this. They live one province over from us (a 12 hour drive, or 1 1/2 hour flight), so it’s hard to not ‘be there’ for my sister & her girls right now. We will be going next week for his Celebration of Life. I’ve heard that some people believe that when a hummingbird visits you, that it’s a good sign, or good luck. Well, we could use something good right now, so I thought I’d share this pretty hummingbird coaster set that I made recently.
HUMMINGBIRD COASTER SET
This is a set of 4 round coasters, with the coaster holder.
Hummingbirds are attracted by red, or bright pink, so I went with the pink theme. This worked well with the pink coneflowers that the hummingbird is perched on, on each coaster.
To create them, I first did the layer of pink tinted resin, with white in the middle. After this was cured, I then placed the special transfer of the hummingbird on the flower in the middle. Next, each one was covered with a layer of clear resin, ensuring that the transfer won’t fade or chip. The coaster holder is the solid pink, with a gold rim painted afterwards, Each coaster is also painted with a thin gold rim.
Here’s a close up photo, so you can see the details.
We keep our hummingbird feeder up year ’round, as we have 2 types of them that visit us. With our temperate climate, the Anna’s breed stays all year, and the Rufous usually migrates after breeding. I have the feeder set up next to one of the kitchen windows, so I can see them all the time!
If you like this set of pretty hummingbirds coasters, you can find them in my Shop now for purchase! And if you (or someone you know) loves hummingbirds, I also have Hummingbird Sun Catchers in my Shop, as well – HERE and HERE.
