Birds Around My House
Yesterday I was noticing just how many birds I had around the house. Not "real" birds, of course, but birds made of glass, ceramic, paper, fabric, etc. Many, I've found at the Flea Market and some were given to me by friends. So, today, I thought I'd show a few of them to you. Notice I said "some." Too many for one post...so I'll leave the rest for another day.
The first "bird" is my newest bird. A couple of weeks ago, the mailman knocked on my door with a package from Texas and this beautiful blue bird was in it. I had been tipped off by my friend, Deb, that a package was forthcoming, but she wouldn't say what was in it. Isn't this blue bird gorgeous? I just had to put it where the morning light would make it glow...this photo was taken on my bed early the other morning. (Ok, my house is dark lots of the time, so I get the light where I can!) I love this beautiful little bird...bet you do too! Thank you, again, Debbie!!!
(I'll see you soon!)
In my living room.......I have a clear glass bowl in which this big brown bird lives. She's a very serious bird....with a nest, of course...constantly watching. This bird was a gift from Bibi. This bird also likes to perch on the table around Thanksgiving time. Thank you, again, Bibi!
Last time I was in Texas, I found these two little blue birds at the local Flea Market in my home town. I have an old vanity sitting in my bedroom, and these two birds perch on a vintage powder jar there. Aren't they sweet?
My friend, Brenda, gave me the cat in this next photo. Thanks again, Brenda. Love the cat...and in that cool hat! Then, Bibi made the little nest with a little yellow bird perched on it, so I thought it would be cute near the cat. I see them when I wake up in the morning. Too cute!
Lastly, there are two ceramic birds on top of my red cabinet. Cabinet and birds from the flea market. I like the way the birds seem to be thinking of flying away....but can't quite decide.
These are some of my favorite birds 'around the house.' Of course, the best birds are the ones outside. I have yet to catch many of them in photos. But, I'm still trying and that old navy man and I enjoy watching them every morning and evening. Two of our favorites are Mr. and Mrs. Mourning Dove. They waddle on our deck every day. Love 'em! Speaking of which....I need to go feed the birds....Y'all take care out there. pat
