Pretty Bird

O n this beautiful sunny day, as I hear the birds singing outside my window, I thought it would be the perfect time to share with you my bird collection. I love and collect all kinds. These two cuties sit on my nightstand. (Above)

There is another one behind them in a beautiful white cage. I picked up the cage at a thrift store and added the bird and nest later.
Here's a closer look.
This is a pair of vintage silver plated salt and peppershakers I purchased on ebay. They sit on a beautiful branch with a couple of flowers.
And here's a closer look.
This little one can be found nesting in my dinning room.

A couple more cuties.
This one is a candleholder...I added the glass votive holder that once belonged to a wall sconce.

Well there you have it, my pretty little birds. They can be found through out my petite cottage. They are a sweet reminder of how wonderful and great God is and how blessed we are to be able to enjoy such beauty on a daily basis.

Thank you so much for dropping by and visiting.

I hope you enjoyed your stay.

Come back soon.

Love all the CUTE birdies... Birdies make me smile! :) By the way I seriously LOVE your spoon and fork wall collage... Where did you find your prints??

Hi Ana, thanks for following. I enjoy bird figurines too. I especially love the silver salt and pepper shakers on the branch.

Hi Jen,
I made my wall collage. I bought the canvases and frames at a yard sale for a dollar a set. I then decoupage the spoon and fork pictures onto the canvases and re-framed them. (I printed the pictures from my computer.) Next I glued some ribbon on the back to connect the two and to create a hanger. The fork holding the frames was and old fork my mother-in-law gave me. My hubby drilled a hole so I could nail it to the wall then I just hung the frames from the fork’s prongs. Pretty easy huh?

Thank you all for your lovely comments.

WE ARE SO MUCH ALIKE IT HURTS! I just found a pair of cute birds at a yardsale (actually my DIL knows of my birdy obsession and picked them up before i found them and gave them to me) and they were a hideous color so I spray painted them white! I cannot wait to put them in my daughter;s birdcage in her shabby little room! They are actually salt and pepper shakers so I can use them also! whooo hooO!
