Steampunk bird...

How about this?!  Twice in one day!  I normally would wait and post this tomorrow, but I'm quite tickled with this latest creation!...
I decided to have a play with a new material this afternoon and have a go at metal recycling! Hubby had a pile of old electronics waiting to go to the skip (something we loathe doing!) so decided to strip them down and see if we could make anything with them..and so a bird was born...
...He needs to have a nice polished wood base making for him, but I think he's ever so sweet...will have to send hubby into the sheds to see if he can find out some more parts for me!!  I do have some lovely bits that would make very nice owl eyes...now just need the rest of it!
Hope you like my steampunk creation and watch this space!....
Hugs,

What a great way to use up unwanted scraps of metal and electronic pieces Lisa, you are very ingenious. I agree with Ali, he does look like a metal version of the woodpecker, Professor Yaffle in Bagpuss.
