So, after my last post about the bird teacup I gave my mom, I started noticing that I am accumulating a lot of bird things in my house. I would say this is the result of being influenced by both Etsy and reading others' blogs! It wasn't that I didn't like birds before, but really, I felt no need to have anything with a bird on it in my house.
Suddenly I seem to feel that need. My first bird is my most special; a clay turkey made by N. in kindergarten. Recently he wanted to look at it. He did what any 6-year old would do; he climbed up on the counter to have a peek. And probably any mother could tell you what happened next. He dropped it! I heard the crash and asked him what happened. "Nothing!!" Right. The beak was broken off with a clean break, so it was repairable. The other bird in the photo is from Sweetnellie's Etsy shop.
Next up we have Clive. He hails from Smith & Hawken. He never tires of hanging out with a Sid Dickens tile and lovely vase from Anthopologie.
Speaking of Sid, here's another tile that's on my bookshelf...
...along with a glass bird from Pottery Barn.
And finally we have Clover the Dove. She joined the roost this weekend. She is a vintage concrete reproduction. I love concrete things and like to keep them indoors. Right now Clover is on my kitchen counter. I have to buy some felt pads for the bottom so she doesn't scratch it. Right now she's sitting on a folded up paper towel.
I even have the bird Post-it Notes I sent to Jenn recetnly. I guess I should just embrace the current bird phase. So far I haven't made any jewelry with bird themes. I wonder if that will be next.
