"Everyone likes birds. What wild creature is more accessible to our eyes and ears, as close to us and everyone in the world, as universal as a bird?"
Recently, I was given this bell pull as a gift. My friend, Kathy, a flea market owner, found it and presented it to me. I love it so...as goes the saying - "I'm over the moon about it." It came from an old house in a south Arkansas town....the house has a woman named 'birdie' in it's history. I also picked up some old photos, papers and such from that old house. How wonderful is it that I, "Bird Nest on the Ground" person....have received such a gift!!! THANK YOU, Kathy, for thinking of me!
What is so wonderful to me about these birds is that they are done in petit point. Look closely at them...such tiny stitches! And, I love the colors!
In that first photo you will also see a very old mirror....I thought you might want to see what's in the top part of it.........you know I just love sentimental things...it says:
"From Your Son in the Service."
Hope you enjoyed the birds! BTW, if you live in this area, you can visit Kathy and her husband, Morgan, at
