Finishing touches

I've been working away on my soldering skills, and having a great time doing so. Making these sweet little pieces means I get to do a bit of collaging before warming up the soldering iron. 
Once complete, I add complimentary ribbon to make the collages "hang-able". 
The front sides of the collages feature sweet birds on braches that have been laid over original pieces of ledger paper dating back to 1900.  Above you have a back view of the collages. The collage on the right has a sheet of paper from an old book diagraming egg varieties. The book once belonged to the Brooklyn Public Library, and still bears its stamp.
